Jeopardy! is all set to return with a new episode on Wednesday, May 22, 2024, bringing with it another exciting round of the popular American game show. The upcoming round will mark the 183rd game of the new season, which began amid some turbulence due to the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes but has now caught pace.

The past week saw Grant DeYoung being a serious threat to the contestants, but like many before him, he too failed to hit the five-game mark. Viewers are still waiting to witness a long streak in this season of the game show.

In the upcoming round of the show, freshly crowned champion, Chris D’Amico, from Lakewood, Ohio, will face off against newcomers Ellen Klages, from San Francisco, California, and Amar Kakirde, from Lake Hiawatha, New Jersey. D’Amico began his streak quite well, winning $25,100 on his very first day. He will hope to continue his streak in the upcoming days.
