James Holzhauer recently won the "Jeopardy!" Tournament of Champions and took home $250k, but his time on the Alex Trebek-hosted show isn't over just yet. Now, the champ is set to face off against Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter in a series of upcoming primetime specials.

On Monday, the popular trivia program announced on their Twitter that "JEOPARDY! The Greatest of All Time" will begin Jan. 7 on ABC. The show's tweet can be seen below.

This showdown will bring the three top money winners together to compete for a portion of the $1.5 million prize. The first person to win three matches will receive $1 million and each runner-up will win $250k, reports the AP. Per the publication, Trebek has shared that he believes the three contestants have proven that they are the "greatest," but will compete to become "the best of the best."

"When James had his run last year, a lot of people were wondering, well how would he do against Ken Jennings? How would he do against Brad Rutter? (They're) our two most successful players in 'Jeopardy!' history," Trebek told USA Today. The "Jeopardy!" host also then revealed that putting the three in a single game seemed "logical" as they have won over 100 games and $10 million between them.

Going into the upcoming match, Rutter ranks first in terms of all-time winnings, with $4.7 million, followed by Jennings at $3.4 million and Holzhauer at $2.7. However, Holzhauer holds the record for single-game winnings due to the fact that on April 17 he won $131,127.

During the history-making run of "Jeopardy James," he came absurdly close to beating Jennings' long-standing record but fell short when he lost to rival Emma Boettcher. However, before the episode officially aired, the clip leaked online, which prompted some to wonder what would happen to the person responsible for sharing it ahead of its air date.

"JEOPARDY! The Greatest of All Time" will begin airing on Jan. 7 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
