Season 35 (2018-2019)Edit

Season changes:

  • Alex Trebek had a full beard, only for a few weeks before he shaved it off on the September 20, 2018 episode.
  • The opening credits have changed to a blue diamond floor zooming out, which is a room full of 3D animations, such as the thinker, molecules, telescope, drama masks, and archive footage, including Alex Trebek's podium from 2006 to 2009, his trademark mustache from 1984 to 2001, and the day where Trebek shaved it off on the September 21, 2001 episode, and the Jeopardy! categories falling into place. The diamond zooms out to reveal a six-pointed star-shaped floor with a hexagonal border taking its place, again having various objects, this time a violin, a wagon wheel, a light bulb, and the categories, as well as Alex Trebek's current podium, and the Watson supercomputer from the IBM challenge. Then, another diamond shaped floor zooms out, this time with the Jeopardy! logo, and diamond outlines appear. Finally, the Jeopardy! logo then zooms forward, in which the "A" reveals the 2013-present set. To mark the show's 35th anniversary, the text "35th Anniversary" can be seen underneath the show's logo.
  • The contestant introductions and Final Jeopardy! winners changed again in this season.
  • The Final Jeopardy! commercial bumpers changed this season.
  • The Daily Double, Double Jeopardy!, and Final Jeopardy! graphics changed again in this season.
  • This season, whenever the middle player gets dismissed before Final Jeopardy!, after finishing in the negative or with $0, after the left player writes down his or her response, instead of a fade from the left player straight to the right player, there is an extra fade of both contestants, before the fade to the right player.
