How else will the new season of Jeopardy! be impacted by the writer’s strike?

Beyond losing Mayim Bialik as a host, the new season of Jeopardy! made several significant changes to abide by the WGA strike rules. All-caps clues will be recycled from past seasons while Jeopardy! Writers are on strike.

"We have always been careful to honor our WGA agreements and we would never air game material not created by WGA writers," a rep for Jeopardy! previously announced. "However, just as we did, led by Alex Trebek, during the 2007-2008 strike, we will deliver first-run episodes again this fall … featuring the best of our WGA written material."

The new season of Jeopardy! will also start off with a Second Chance tournament instead of bringing in new contestants.
