‘Celebrity Jeopardy!’ to Debut on ABC in the Fall

Famous faces will compete to donate to a charity of their choice

ABC is adding another celebrity version of a classic game show to its slate. “Celebrity Jeopardy!” will join the network for the 2022-23 TV season.

The series will give famous contestants the opportunity to win money for a charity of their choice. It will debut in the fall and air Sundays at 8 p.m. ET.

“Not yet, but we’ll have details soon,” Craig Erwich, president, Hulu Originals & ABC Entertainment, told TheWrap Tuesday morning when asked if “Celebrity Jeopardy!” had set a host.

“Celebrity Jeopardy!” joins a growing list of the network’s game shows to get a celebrity-filled spinoff. Others include “Celebrity Wheel of Fortune” and “Celebrity Family Feud.” Last week, both series were renewed.

ABC also has a growing list of game shows with non-celebrity contestants. In addition to the original versions of the shows listed above, the network also airs “The $100,000 Pyramid,” “The Chase,” “Press Your Luck” and “To Tell the Truth.”

“Celebrity Jeopardy!” is produced by Sony Pictures Television. Michael Davies is an executive producer.
