All five episodes of Jeopardy were taped in late October, 2020, and at the time, nobody knew they would be his last, according to a release.
Friday’s episode will include a special tribute to the life and work of Trebek, who hosted the quiz show for more than 36 years.
Trebek died Nov. 8 after a long battle with cancer. He was 80 years old. Trebek was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in March 2019, and he continued to host the show for the next 18 months.
