One of the most recognizable television show hosts in history, Alex Trebek, suffered a heart attack over the weekend. The host of ‘Jeopardy!’ was transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and was still under observation on Sunday. Trebek, 71, is expected to make a full recovery but did undergo tests on Sunday. His representatives said that he is expected to be fully recovered by next month, when filming on the new season for the game show will begin. The new season, the show’s 29th, will begin filming sometime in July.

The show’s producer, Sony, released a statement about Trebek over the weekend. The statement reads as follows: “Trebek is in good spirits and is currently under observation and undergoing further testing. He is expected to fully recover and be back at Jeopardy! when production begins taping in July for the new season, the show’s 29th.”


Trebek suffered his first heart attack back in 2007 and was also a mild one like this incident. It did not take Trebek long to recover from that heart attack and return to filming the game show. Last July, Trebek suffered an Achilles injury after he chased a burglar from his hotel room in San Francisco. Trebek awoke to the noise of a woman ruffling through his belongings.
