Let’s Go! LeVar Burton Is Set to Guest Host Jeopardy Following Petition

Looks like LeVar Burton’s dreams may come true!

He expressed how he wanted to replace the late long-running host Alex Trebek, who passed away due to cancer and the people listened.

Burton started a petition. It reads:

“Between hosting 21 seasons of the educational Reading Rainbow, playing the brainiac engineer Geordi La Forge on Star Trek: the Next Generation, and filling the roll of Kunta Kinte in the ever important mini-series Roots, LeVar Burton has inspired and shaped the minds of several generations of trivia-loving nerds. This petition is to show Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc. and producers Mike Richards and Harry Friedman just how much love the public has for Burton, and how much we’d all love to see him as the next host of Jeopardy!”

As of right now, a permanent host has not been revealed, but he will be a guest hosting spot for now.

On Twitter he shared the excitement:

“THANK YOU… to all y’all for your passionate support! I am overjoyed, excited, and eager to be guest-hosting Jeopardy!, and will do my utmost best to live up to your faith you in me. YOU MADE A DIFFERENCE! Go ahead and take my word for it, this time.”

We love to see it!!
