When G4 returns later this year, it will be in more than just name. Original X-Play host Adam Sessler and Attack of the Show’s Kevin Pereira are both coming along for the ride, and their shows will be back, too.
They’re joining a group of new hosts that includes WWE superstar Xavier Woods, and you can expect to see many classic G4 segments when the shows are revived. In a press release, Adam Sessler specifically mentioned his “Sessler’s Soapbox” segment making a return, as well as opinions on the latest gaming news and, of course, reviews. We give that news a five … out of five.
Sessler had been unceremoniously fired from the network in 2013, later joining the site Rev3Games before then doing consulting and strategy for media. According to Sessler, he was never given a reason for his termination, but it looks like things were smoothed over. He also got to laugh at Esquire Network’s expense, referencing the originally planned closure of G4 and replacement by Esquire Network–it ended up not working out that way, but Esquire Network itself is now defunct, too.
His co-host Morgan Webb was not mentioned in the new announcement, but she has been employed by game developer Bonfire Studios since 2017.
Attack of the Show host Kevin Pereira will also be hosting his old show, though it remains to be seen what form that will take. During the original run, it was co-hosted by Olivia Munn and later Candace Bailey.
Along with the returning hosts, G4 also announced a few new faces–Froskurinn and Ovilee May–who will focus on esports programming. They’re heading up The BLEEP Esports Show, which will focus on news from the competitive gaming world.
