Fans of the office comedy Mythic Quest on Apple TV+ will be relieved to hear the show’s coming back for season 3. That news was confirmed and a teaser trailer was unveiled Saturday at a special panel about the show at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
The show’s cast and creators confirmed that the series will return this fall. And they rolled a first-look teaser for the third season that suggests it’ll be just as funny as the first two seasons. Have a look and a laugh at it, below.
Apple TV+ Mythic Quest season 3 trailer promises either everything or nothing will change
The Mythic Quest panel at Comic-Con International was a full house. Co-creator, executive producer and star Rob McElhenney, co-creator and executive producer Megan Ganz, executive producer and star David Hornsby, and stars Charlotte Nicdao, Danny Pudi, Ashly Burch, Imani Hakim and Jessie Ennis came together for the conversation, moderated by writer, director and producer Craig Mazin.
They shared a glimpse into what fans can expect this upcoming season. For a taste, watch the trailer below. And to see what Cult of Mac‘s reviewer said about season 2, click here. In part, he said it was “strong” and it “portends greatness for the future.”
Looking ahead to the new season
Mythic Quest follows a group of video game developers tasked with building worlds, molding heroes and creating legends. But the hardest-fought battles don’t take place in the game. They happen in the office.
In season three, Ian (played by McElhenney) and Poppy (Nicdao), having left the gaming company at the end of season 2, navigate the wider gaming world and their partnership at the newly formed GrimPop Studios. Meanwhile, hapless HR manager Dana (Hakim) is forced to play mediator to her incessantly bickering bosses.
Back at Mythic Quest, manager and milquetoast David (Hornsby) settles into his new role as boss, finding himself truly in charge for the first time. Near-psychopath Jo (Ennis) returns as his assistant, more loyal and militant than ever.
Carol (Naomi Ekperigin) attempts to figure out where she fits in after a new promotion. At Berkeley, Rachel (Ashly Burch) struggles to balance her morals with capitalism, while a post-prison Brad (Danny Pudi) tries to return to society as a reformed man.
Can the Quest continue without its scribe?
Sadly, one thing season 3 won’t have is actor F. Murray Abraham, who left the show for undisclosed reasons. The 82-year-old actor played C.W. Longbottom, a washed-up science fiction author hired to be Mythic Quest‘s writer, to hilarious effect.
Mythic Quest is executive produced by McElhenney and Charlie Day under their RCG banner, Michael Rotenberg and Nicholas Frenkel on behalf of 3Arts, and Jason Altman, Danielle Kreinik and Gérard Guillemot for Ubisoft Film and Television.
Hornsby and Ganz serve as executive producers, as well. The series is produced for Apple TV+ by Lionsgate, 3 Arts Entertainment and Ubisoft.
