Representatives for the longtime host of Jeopardy! confirmed that he's back at home, which is right in line with their earlier prediction that Trebek, 71, was "expected to fully recover and be back at Jeopardy! when production begins taping in July for the new season, the show's 29th."

Trebek reportedly maintained "good spirits" as doctors completed their testing at Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute.

Alex Trebek previously suffered a heart attack in late 2007, returning to work just weeks later.
