Here is what Pat Sajak plans to do on Wheel of Fortune in his surprising return.

Wheel of Fortune is filming its next season with Ryan Seacrest and Vanna White as the co-hosts. Even though no one has seen an episode yet, fans already miss Pat and decrying the new host. However, there is some good news: Pat is coming back to Wheel of Fortune.

This will be a special edition of the show, though, and it is not part of the regular season. Instead, Sajak will return for his “final spin” as the host of Celebrity Wheel of Fortune. While Pat has not left the main show and remains on board as an advisor, he will host the celebrity show one last time next season.

Celebrity Wheel of Fortune premieres on Monday, October 7, at 8/7c and will lead into a new Press Your Luck season. These episodes have not been taped yet, as the next regular season’s filming is ongoing.

With that over with, it seemed like he was leaving the game show behind him. He did remain on board as an advisor, but there is no word on what that entails. However, the news that he is returning for one more Celebrity Wheel of Fortune season has to be good news for fans.

Other than that, Pat Sajak is also getting involved in more theater acting. Pat will appear in Prescription: Murder with his long-time friend Joe Moore at the Hawai’i Theater in Honolulu in the summer of 2025. This isn’t his first time on stage there, as he also appeared in The Odd Couple, The Honeymooners, The Boys in Autumn, Wrestling Ernest Hemingway, and Dial M for Murder.
