(CNN) — It’s hiatus time for the crew at “Jeopardy” but beloved host Alex Trebek, who is fighting a battle with cancer, says he intends to be back.
In a video filmed on the show’s set on the last day of taping for its current season, Trebek says “despite what you may have heard, I’m feeling good, I’m continuing with my therapy and we…[are] already working on our next season, the 36th year of ‘Jeopardy.'”
“I look forward to seeing you once again in September with all kinds of good stuff,” he adds.
Earlier this month, the longtime game show host announced
he was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
An outpouring of support flooded social media upon news of Trebek’s diagnosis.
In his latest video statement, Trebek said the “messages of encouragement and support” have left him “touched beyond words.”
Trebek, 78, has hosted “Jeopardy” since 1984, when the show began airing daily in syndication.
