Not game over! Video game comedy 'Mythic Quest' powers up two-season renewal at Apple TV+
After months of anticipation, Apple TV+ has finally renewed Mythic Quest for third and fourth seasons.
Mythic Quest will not suffer a dark, quiet death (if you know, you know). After months of anticipation, Apple TV+ has finally handed down a rare, double-season renewal, ordering third and fourth seasons of the video game workplace comedy.
The streaming platform broke the news via a comedic FaceTime skit between series co-creator, Rob McElhenney, and a confused Anthony Hopkins (the Oscar-winning actor actually nabbed an Emmy nod for a small narration cameo in the pre-Season 2 special entitled "Afterlight"). The announcement promo also features a guest appearance by Jason Sudeikis, star of Ted Lasso, another breakout hit from Apple.
Check it out:
“Just like critics and audiences all over the world, we fell in love with Rob and his team’s sharp writing and full-of-heart, relatable characters that make up the world of Mythic Quest,” Matt Cherniss, Head of Programming for Apple TV+, said in a statment. “We can’t wait for viewers to see what’s in store in the upcoming seasons of this brilliant workplace comedy.”
McElhenney created the show alongside his fellow It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia alumni, Megan Ganz and Charlie Day. All three serve as executive producers alongside Michael Rotenberg, Nicholas Frenkel, Jason Altman, Danielle Kreinik, Gérard Guillemot, and David Hornsby.
Both McElhenney and Hornsby star as two core members of the Mythic Quest development team: creative head Ian Grimm and executive producer David Brittlesbee. F. Murray Abraham, Danny Pudi, Imani Hakim, Charlotte Nicdao, Ashly Burch, Jessie Ennis, Naomi Ekperigin, Caitlin McGee, Humphrey Ker, Chris Naoki Lee, and Jonathan Wiggs co-star.
The second season ended on a major cliffhanger with Ian and Poppy (Nicdao) deciding to leave Mythic Quest in order pursue a new original gaming project. Brad (Pudi) was whisked off to jail for inside trading and David was left in control of the company's future with Jo (Ennis) back at his side. C.W. (Abraham) is sticking around as MQ's head of story, but Dana (Imani Hakim) and Rachel (Burch) will be testing out the waters of a long-distance relationship as they chase their professional ambitions.
"We're really proud of Season 2, I think it came out great. So we'll see...keep your fingers crossed for us!" Burch said during a recent interview with SYFY WIRE when we asked about the possibility of more installments.
Season 3 of Mythic Quest will convene its writers' room before the year is out with the plan being to start releasing new episodes sometime in 2022. The first two seasons of Mythic Quest are now available to stream on Apple TV+.
