Jeopardy! is all set to return tonight with an all-new episode and another new champion. This season seems to be extraordinarily difficult for participants, with most failing to make even ordinary streaks. This is vastly different from the previous season, which not only saw regular streaks but also some of the most exceptional streaks in the show's history.

In this episode, Kat Jepson will play her second game. Given the track record of season 39, fans are not expecting much from the new contestants. Freshly-crowned Kat Jepson will face off against Laura Caton and Ben Chan. Kat Jepson managed to win a modest $20,399 on her first day, which is not exceptional but is not a small amout either.

Jeopardy! is arguably the most popular American game show of all time. The long history of the show began in 1964, but it has managed to outdo almost all other game shows to become a global phenomenon. Strikingly, the game show is more popular now than it ever was in the past. Its engaging nature and offbeat format have received appreciation from fans globally, and its final round has become a cult phenomenon in recent years.

The final round of Jeopardy! is the key to its unmatched success, and it allows viewers to participate from the comfort of their homes. Viewers can do this by guessing the correct answer to the final question ahead of the episode's airtime.

However, it can still be quite cumbersome on a daily basis. To ease this, we have compiled the question, answer, and other relevant details from the upcoming episode below.

The final question for the upcoming round of the game show reads:

"England’s "Bloody Assizes" & a 1685 life sentence for perjury were 2 main origins of this amendment to the U.S. Constitution."

This question is from the category "The Bill of Rights." An extremely offbeat topic, this particular question is quite difficult compared to the ones that came in the recent episodes. It should prove to be quite a challenge for the contestants tonight.
