Airing at six p.m. Pacific time on November 24 on Twitch and YouTube Gaming, the unique will reunite the cast members from the original show. And the unique is fueling additional proof that the network itself will come back in 2021.
The original network had a collection of gaming shows that had been broadcast on cable Television from 2002 to 2014. I watched G4 quite religiously anytime I necessary a laugh, and I even appeared on it as a gaming professional (go figure).
The pre-Thanksgiving show will function Olivia Munn, Kevin Pereira, Adam Sessler, Chris Hardwick, Morgan Webb, Sarah Underwood, and other people. Comedian Ron Funches will be the host. The reunion is the very first considering that the network closed.
“Family get-togethers are dysfunctional from the get-go,” Pereira mentioned in an interview with GamesBeat. “But when you get the G4 family together, you’re assured that there is going to be a good amount of cursing, blood flinging, finger-pointing, and shouting with your mouths full. Comcast was kind enough to post bail for all of us to get back together.”
The show will re-air on cable Television on SyFy Channel at midnight Eastern time and also at midnight Pacific time on November 27.
The show will also have a charity element known as #Gravython. Through a weeklong drive, original G4 cast members and participating streamers will raise dollars for a assortment of non-profit organizations, with the assist of G4’s fan neighborhood from November 24 to November 28.

Asked if the G4 network revival is coming back for positive, Sessler mentioned, “I obviously anticipated this question and so I structured an answer as is. As you know full well when covering games that are at a distance from launching, anything you’re saying is just pure speculation. It’s speculation.”
Pereira added, “That dodge was like Keanu Reeves on the rooftops. That was a Matrix dodge. I want to say more that is going to get me in trouble. Just so you can say it right here. G4 will in fact relaunch when Cyberpunk 2077 is released. And you can quote Adam Sessler on that.”
Comcast started teasing the return earlier this year. Sessler did a “Crazy Adam” video looking for talent for the new show in September. That video got additional than a million views.
Tim Buckman, a senior vice president of corporate communications at Comcast NBCUniversal, mentioned that the firm would give data about G4 in 2021.
By that time, G4 will have some competitors from Venn, which is a new broadcast network committed to gamers. Sessler mentioned that competitors and all the gaming news on the web is fantastic for the game business. And he mentioned that individuals require a lot of comic relief in the course of the pandemic.
I asked if I could get on the show as a “highly skilled gamer” for the reason that I’m so amazing at playing games.
Sessler replied, “It’s going to be all-Cuphead, all the time. You’re more than welcome to come back on.”
Sessler mentioned he had some jitters going to an in-particular person broadcast occasion for the show. Concerned about flying on an airplane, Sessler mentioned the show makers we’re sort adequate to get a driver to drive him to Los Angeles for the show, with a plastic barrier in between the driver and Sessler in the back seat.
“You’re in for a shotgun blast of G4,” Pereira mentioned. “You’re in for pure nostalgia gravy. We wanted to give people a little bit of closure.”
