G4, the once-popular gaming broadcast network that went off the air in 2014, will bring back two fan-favorite shows — Attack of the Show! and X-Play — for the network’s revival.
More details will come later on who the hosts and talent will be for these programs.
The original network had a collection of gaming shows that were broadcast on cable TV from 2002 to 2014. I watched G4 pretty religiously whenever I needed a laugh, and I even appeared on it as a gaming expert (go figure). X-Play featured Adam Sessler and Morgan Webb.
In November, the network hinted at its revival with a pre-Thanksgiving show featuring the network’s original celebrity hosts, such as Olivia Munn, Kevin Pereira, Chris Hardwick, Sessler, Webb, and Sara Underwood.
Comcast began teasing the return of G4 in 2020. Sessler did a “Crazy Adam” video seeking talent for the new show in September. That video got more than a million views.
