After going silent in late June 2020, Fed confirmed he will be returning to Twitch on Wednesday, June 22 at 1 PM PST / 4 PM EST.
Original story follows below…
Federico Michael Gaytan, better known as Fedmyster, has been keeping a low profile since he was removed from the Offline TV house following sexual misconduct allegations made by House Manager Yvonne ‘Yvonnie’ Ng.
However, he inadvertently stirred the pot towards the end of 2020 after a document he wrote about his situation with Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys got leaked. But now that the situation is dead and buried, it left many people wondering what happened to him and whether he’ll ever return to Twitch.
Well, it looks like it’s finally happening.
Fans received a mysterious notification implying a comeback stream was on the cards, however, they figured it was probably a false alarm, like the one that happened in February 2021. That’s not the case though, Fedmyster has confirmed: the comeback stream is real.
Fedmyster confirms Twitch return
In a screenshot taken from his private discord server and sent to Dexerto — which has since been sighted by Dexerto in the channel as well — a fan asked him whether the date mentioned in the push notification was the “real date” of his comeback stream or whether it was “another fake.”
Fedmyster responded, saying, “It’s happening.” So, you heard it straight from the horse’s mouth; he really is returning to the streaming platform, after all this time.
Fedmyster fans receive mysterious push notification
Earlier this week, Fedmyster’s fans received a mysterious notification claiming that his next stream will take place on Thursday, June 24.
However, most assumed it was a false alarm because he didn’t comment on it at the time, and a similar thing happened several months earlier streaming schedule.
Fed’s February return never eventuates
The first false alarm happened when fans suspected he was making a comeback in February. His Twitch channel’s schedule section said he was on vacation and would return in 20 days on February 3rd, 2021.
However, it ultimately didn’t eventuate.
Because of that, fans are skeptical about whether he’ll come back again anytime soon, even after receiving the push notification.
Either way, now that we know Fedmyster’s return is happening for real, it will be interesting to see how the community responds.

On the one hand, some think he deserves a chance to redeem himself in the public’s eyes and focus on creating content. But on the other hand, he’s become maligned after everything that went down. So, it will almost certainly evoke mixed feelings.
