Season 34 (2017-2018)Edit

Season changes:

  • The opening credits have changed to various items with written responses depending on the episode airs, and with game board designs behind them before switching over to the Jeopardy! logo at the end, also with a game board design behind it. Finally, the Jeopardy! logo then zooms forward, in which the "A" reveals the 2013-present set.
  • The font for the contestant introductions and Final Jeopardy! winnings were changed to Helvetica starting with this season.
  • Korinna came back to the closing credits starting with this season.
  • The copyright notice is changed to a header reading "Follow Us", which is accompanied by icons for the social platforms, such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube, which is changed to the copyright notice after a few seconds.
  • A rule change that started on November 24, 2014, early in season 31, if two or three regular contestants are tied after the Final Jeopardy! round, a tiebreaker clue will be played, if a contestant rings in the correct response, he or she is the champion. This occurred the first time on March 1, 2018.
  • The Tournament of Champions returned in November after two years of absence.
  • The dividers used during Final Jeopardy! are now retractable.
  • Contestants are now standing behind their podiums during the closing credits, just like they did at the beginning of the show starting in Season 17, rather than walking away from their podiums.
  • On later episodes aired Wednesdays and Thursdays, they don't have Johnny Gilbert saying "Promotional consideration provided by" at the end of each episode other than the consolation cash prizes. For other weekdays, Johnny Gilbert says, "Jeopardy! is also brought to you by" following the sponsoring of consolation prizes.
