Pat Sajak and Vanna White have agreed to continue hosting the show through the 2023-24 season. As part of the deal, Sajak has added consulting producer to his responsibilities.
“I remember thinking, not in a morbid way, ‘I think this must be death. This must be what death is like,'” Sajak recalled during an interview with Good Morning America of the health scare that forced him to miss a taping of the game show.

Per the tweet, taping for the show resumed on Friday as scheduled with Vanna White hosting.

Alex Trebek, the man with one of the sweetest deals in TV, is not throwing in the towel just yet. Despite hints in recent years that he was ready to retire, the 74-year-old Jeopardy host just signed on to stay through at least the 2017-18 season — as have Wheel of Fortune‘s Pat Sajak and Vanna White.
