"Jeopardy!" fans will have to wait a little longer to find out who will be named the iconic quiz show's new permanent host.

Michael Davies, who stepped in to take over for former executive producer Mike Richards, is sticking around as well.

"We're so pleased to have such an excellent and experienced team in front of and behind the camera as we head into 2022!" according to a statement posted to "Jeopardy!" social media accounts on Wednesday.

It was previously announced that Bialik and Jennings would share hosting duties for the rest of 2021 after Richards' whirlwind exit from the series just days after he was announced as the new "Jeopardy!" host in August.

This news comes a month after the one-year anniversary of longtime host Alex Trebek's death. He died from pancreatic cancer at the age of 80 on Nov. 8, 2020.
