"Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek provided an update on his cancer battle ahead of Wednesday's episode, saying he is "feeling good" and looks forward to taping another season of the show in the coming months.

Trebek first revealed his stage 4 pancreatic cancer diagnosis in early March and vowed to fight the disease and continue hosting the iconic quiz show. This week, as the show finished taping its 35th anniversary season, the 78-year-old updated viewers with his condition.

"Some of you may recall that at the beginning of this season, I promised you that we had some surprises in store for you," Trebek said. "Well, of course, I had no idea at that time that there were some surprises in store for me as well.

"So here, on the last day of taping for our 35th anniversary season, I wanted once again to thank you for your continuing messages of encouragement and support, particularly the many cards I've received from young people. I'm touched beyond words."

He continued, "I've always tried to be straight with you, and I'm not going to stop now, so despite what you may have heard, I'm feeling good, I'm continuing with my therapy and we, by we, the staff, is already working on our next season, the 36th year of 'Jeopardy!' I look forward to seeing you once again in September with all kinds of good stuff."
