The game show shared one Instagram post with Ken Jennings, 49, who makes it clear that he is hosting alone and without Mayim Bialik, 47.
“Note: Hollywood’s brightest are back when this show premieres Wednesday, September 27th at 8/7c on ABC! Answer: What is #CelebrityJeopardy!?” they wrote.
While some fans said they would miss Mayim on “Celebrity Jeopardy!”, some said they were not against the change.
One fan replied: “Maybe I’ll watch it now since she’s not hosting.”
“Thank God Ken is the only host!” a second snapped.
The new series comes amid the ongoing WGA and SAG strikes, which led Mayim to withdraw in solidarity with the strikers.
A source told The messenger that Mayim probably won’t be back until the New Year, if not later.
“She wasn’t fired,” the source said.
“She has chosen to stand by her union and for this reason she has been informed that it is unlikely she will return for the remainder of the year, even if the strike is resolved before then.”
Mayim is a member of the striking actors union SAG-AFTRA.
Meanwhile, Ken faced backlash from some fans and former players over his decision to cross the picket line.
Ken remained relatively quiet on the subject, repeating a statement from the series’ executive producer in which he referenced the late Alex Trebek continuing to serve as host during the 2007–2008 writers’ strike.
