"He's in good health," a rep for Sony Pictures, the studio that houses "Jeopardy," confirmed in a statement.

Trebek was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital on June 23 with chest pains, which turned out to be a mild heart attack. He was released four days later.

The Ontario native had previously suffered his first heart attack in 2007. At that time, he also returned to "Jeopardy" after only a month out of commission.

Though he is back in the saddle again, Trebek has revealed he is set to retire from the game show circuit soon.

"A lot of people have been telling me, 'Alex, you've got to go for at least 30. You've just done 28. Now, at least do two more,'" he told Fox News in May. "So that has a nice ring to it. Put in your 30 and go help people."

"Jeopardy" returns Sept. 17.
