The once defunct gaming, tech, and entertainment network G4TV revealed it will return at some capacity in 2021 with a new teaser video shown during Comic-Con@Home. The video was posted by IGN and features details and subtle hints that the network’s signature shows will also be returning.

The footage above features a dark warehouse that hosts a game of Pong being played on a CRT television. TV screen then flitches and show the words “incoming transmission,” before the camera flies through several internet wires that finally reveals the old G4TV logo. The year 2021 appears on the screen followed by the tagline “We never stopped playing.” The tagline can be found on the network’s social media accounts, and a similar transmission can be seen on the G4 website before a playable game of Pong arrives on screen.

G4TV originally launched in 2002 before shutting its doors in 2014 and was best known for video game review show X-Play and the live pop culture series Attack of the Show!.

Original X-Play hosts Adam Sessler and Morgan Webb reacted to the announcement on Twitter, as did former AOTS hosts Kevin Periera and Olivia Munn. It is currently unknown if any of the original talents will return for the revived network or how the network intends to relaunch.

G4 was most recently owned by Comcast subsidiary NBCUniversal. Some have already speculated that the network could return as part of Peacock, the company’s newly formed streaming service.
