The season will feature 27 contestants in all, with the rest still to be announced.

Unlike the standard edition of Jeopardy, the celeb version features hourlong episodes and includes a Triple Jeopardy round. Ken Jennings is hosting season 2, reprising his role from the flagship show and taking over for Mayim Bialik, who emceed the inaugural season of Celebrity Jeopardy.

The actress halted her hosting duties on the standard edition of Jeopardy (which she had split with Jennings) at the beginning of the WGA strike in May.

In the first season of Celebrity Jeopardy, Ike Barinholtz narrowly defeated Patton Oswalt and Wil Wheaton to win the grand prize for Pacific Clinics. Other competitors included Michael Cera, Constance Wu, Simu Liu, Hasan Minhaj, Ray Romano, and Ego Nwodim.

Celebrity Jeopardy season 2 premieres Wednesday, Sept. 27, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. Get a sneak peek in the video above.
