Returning television network G4 Media, which hosted Attack of the Show and X-Play, released a Thanksgiving reunion with the shows' original cast. The approximately one-hour special also revealed the networks' latest on-air hire.

WWE superstar Austin Watson, better known as Xavier Woods and one-half of The New Day (the current WWE Raw Tag Team Champions), is G4's "first official on-air talent [hire]." This comes after Watson pitched extensively to the network on Twitter through his #Creed4G4 campaign, which was a multi-month endeavor and generated millions of views online.

Alongside Watson in the G4 Thanksgiving reunion special is the original cast of Attack of the Show and X-Play: Adam Sessler, Blair Herter, Kevin Pereira, Kirstin Adams, Morgan Webb, and Olivia Munn. All of them reminisce about various moments in their respective show's history, including that one time in 2008 when Olivia Munn shaved Kevin Pereira's face and head.

You can check out the reunion special below, which is moderated by comedian Ron Funches. It will also air on SyFy Network and Peacock, Saturday, November 27 at midnight (ET and PT).

G4 is also holding a weeklong Gravython charity drive. It features a variety of streamers and professional esports organizations, including Dr. Lupo and Team Liquid, as they host livestreams on their respective Twitch and YouTube Gaming channels. The Gravython charity drive supports nonprofit organizations like CodePath, Girls Who Code, Black Girls Code, Boys & Girls Club of America, No Kid Hungry, The National Fragile X Foundation, and Connor’s Cure.

This is all in anticipation of G4's imminent return slated for next year. While the network hasn't outlined its revival plans yet, it seems the return of G4 could go digital this time around.
