    Jeopardy! is finally welcoming back live studio audiences after two years of operating under COVID-19 restrictions.

    The show's official Twitter account announced the news on Monday, saying, "Welcome back to the Alex Trebek Stage! For the first time in two years, tickets for our studio audience are now available."

    Co-host Ken Jennings retweeted the announcement, writing, "This is very exciting."

    He added, "Nobody would be more pleased about this than Alex himself. He was a natural showman (as anyone who ever saw a Jeopardy! taping can attest) and was never quite as happy doing the audience-less shows of the pandemic era. We're back, Alex!"

    Fans can attend Jeopardy! tapings by signing up for tickets on the show's website. Tickets are available for a period of up to two months before the taping date, with new tickets released on the first day of each month. The show tapes at Sony Pictures Studio in Culver City, California.

    A permanent Jeopardy! host has not yet been announced, but for now, Ken Jennings and Mayim Bialik are taking turns hosting the popular game show.

    Jeopardy! airs weeknights in syndication, with new episodes airing through July.
