On Tuesday (July 24) Alex Trebek returned to the set of his long-running game show “Jeopardy” for the first time since suffering a mild heart attack in June to tape the first episode of the show’s new season.

In late June Trebek was admitted to Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Hospital after complaining of chest pains. Doctors eventually found a blockage in one of the arteries that supplies blood to the heart. After a 4-night hospital stay, Trebek said he was largely back to his old routine, but planning to take it easy for a while.

“He is in good health and already planning home improvement projects,” according to a Sony press release.
