“Jeopardy!” GOATs to Return for New Quiz Show “The Chase”
James Holzhauer, Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter won't be playing "Jeopardy!"
The greatest minds to ever appear on Jeopardy! — Ken Jennings, James Holzhauer and Brad Rutter — went head-to-head in the show’s “Greatest of All Time” tournament earlier this year, and as Variety reports, they’ll be back on ABC … but they won’t be playing Jeopardy!
Jennings, Holzhauer and Rutter will instead be appearing on The Chase, a new American adaptation of the hit U.K. quiz show by the same name “in which contestants face off with TV trivia titans,” the publication notes. The hour-long show will be hosted by Sara Haines of The View and feature each of the three Jeopardy! stars taking turns as the “Chaser,” described by the network as “a ruthless quiz genius determined to stop contestants from winning cash prizes.”
“Each week, new contestants face-off against the Chasers in a battle of brain power, challenged to think faster than they ever thought possible,” they added.
Each episode will feature up to 166 questions across all topics as contestants seek to earn cash by playing against Holzhauer, Jennings or Rutter. ABC has placed a series order for The Chase, though there’s no word yet on when the show will premiere.
