The characters of Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet are quarantined at home like the rest of us, and it’s not going well. Their dysfunctional video chats are the subject of a special episode of this Apple TV+ show.

It’ll hit Apple’s streaming video service a week from today. But you can watch the trailer now:

Apple TV+ describes the episode “Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet — Quarantine” by saying “As the MQ staff works from home, Poppy struggles with solitude while Brad and David start a charitable competition.”

The complete first season of this workplace comedy debuted in January, and there’s no date yet for the release of season two, which is already in development. This “Quarantine” episode appears to be a stand-alone offering.

It’s scheduled to hit Apple TV+ on Friday, May 22.

Mythic Quest is a comedy for gamers

This comedy features developers at a video game company. Real-world game developer Ubisoft assisted with its creation, suggesting that its humor has a basis in reality.

The Cult of Mac review calls it “the first show on Apple’s new streaming video service that you’ll love.”

Watching Mythic Quest: Quarantine, as well all the other shows on Apple TV+, requires $4.99 a month subscription. But anyone who recently bought selected Apple devices can enjoy free for a year. And for everyone else, there’s a one-week free trial.
