Kotaku Australia can confirm that Stephanie “Hex” Bendixsen and Nich “Nichboy” Richardson will be starting up a new gaming TV show for Channel 7.
The details were first posted by Junkee, and adds that the decision to cancel Good Game was taken by ABC director of television Richard Finlayson. It was also understood that the show’s ratings had declined, although Hex posted on Twitter that this was not uncommon for other shows at the ABC and that Good Game was not an outlier.
Very little is known about the show at this stage. Kotaku Australia understands that Nichboy, however, is the showrunner. No specifics have been revealed or confirmed by Channel Seven.
We also know that the split between Hex, Nichboy and the ABC was amicable, and that the decision to cancel the show was taken after their departure. Hex reiterated to fans on Twitter that she was not involved in the show’s cancellation, and Nichboy criticised the ABC over the decision.
