Season 36 (2019-2020)Edit

Season changes:

  • The opening credits have changed to CGI animations of various 3D objects, depending on when the episode airs. Categories from the Jeopardy! and Double Jeopardy! round segments appear onscreen, with their corresponding subjects surrounding them. Then, we see the Jeopardy! logo zooming out to the center of the screen, with golden beams of light appearing on both sides of the screen, and creating a purplish sky background. Finally, the Jeopardy! logo then zooms forward, in which the "A" reveals the 2013-present set.
  • The contestant introductions, Daily Double, Audio Daily Double, Video Daily Double, Double Jeopardy!, and Final Jeopardy! graphics gained a new look to match the season's title card.
  • The split-screen closing credits gained a new look to match the season's title card.
  • The Daily Double logo next to the contestant's right shoulder now has a shadow outline.
  • This is the last season where Harry Friedman is the executive producer, due to Mike Richards taking over the next season.
