Jamie Foxx is "doing incredibly well" as he marches toward his return to Beat Shazam and several new projects, a source tells PEOPLE.

“He is so busy, and back to doing what he loves," the source says of Foxx, 56, who will be returning to host the FOX game show with his daughter Corinne Foxx, 30, for its upcoming season.

"Jamie didn’t skip a beat on Beat Shazam," the source says. "He was literally right back to his old self. Really on it!"

Foxx's return to the game show and upcoming movies — IMDb lists at least three films the actor has in 2024 — comes after he suffered a "medical complication" in April 2023 and spent a number of months out of the public eye.

While Foxx has not yet clarified exactly what happened, he said at the seventh annual AAFCA Special Achievement Awards in March that he will share the full story in a forthcoming stand-up comedy special.

A second insider tells PEOPLE Tuesday that Foxx "is super busy, happy and going strong,” nearly one year after the medical emergency.
