'Mythic Quest' Season 2 Premiering on Apple TV+ on May 7

Apple today shared a teaser for the second season of popular Apple TV+ comedy "Mythic Quest," which is set to premiere on Friday, May 7.


"Mythic Quest," along with shows like "The Morning Show," "Dickinson," "See," and "For All Mankind," was one of the first series to be made available on ‌Apple TV+‌.

The show follows a team of video game developers navigating the challenges of running a popular online massive multiplayer roleplaying game similar to World of Warcraft. The series was created by Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day, known for their work on long running series "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia."

McElhenney plays Grimm, the studio's creative director, with David Hornsby starring as executive producer David Brittlesbee and Charlotte Nicdao playing lead engineer Poppy Li. The show also features Danny Pudi and F. Murray Abraham.

Season 2 of "Mythic Quest" will focus on the team's efforts to create a new expansion for the game, building on the "Raven's Banquet" expansion that was featured in the first season.

With the quarantine finally over, season two of "Mythic Quest" finds everyone back in the office (well, almost everyone), attempting to build upon the success of Raven's Banquet by launching an epic new expansion, but Ian (Rob McElhenney) and the newly promoted co-creative director, Poppy (Charlotte Nicdao), struggle with the game's direction. Meanwhile, C.W. (F. Murray Abraham) reconciles some unresolved issues from his past, the testers (Ashly Burch and Imani Hakim) test the bounds of an office romance, and David (David Hornsby) loses yet another woman in his life as Jo (Jessie Ennis) leaves him to assist Brad (Danny Pudi).

While the first season was titled "Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet," the Raven's Banquet part of the title has been dropped for the second season. Along with "Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet," the cast of the show also starred in a one-off "Mythic Quest: Quarantine" episode that received rave reviews last spring.

Looking forward to this one. Season 1 was very funny. I love stumbling on a good series by accident. My hope is that Apple won't adopt the two seasons and done strategy of other streaming services.

Everything churned out by Ron Moore is bad taste.
Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek TNG are "bad taste?" Sacrilege. Utter sacrilege. I think you will find yourself on a lonely island as far as people agreeing with you on that opinion. Woof.

I am really happy to read this. The first season 0f Mythic Quest was great, the Quarantine episode possibly one of the best pieces of television ever. Really looking forward to the second season of many of the series on AppleTV+, particularly Ted Lasso. Though I acknowledge it is not everyone's cup of tea (see what I did there) why would we imagine that we would all like the same thing? If the show has an audience, and most of them do, then good for the show and the audience. Good on Apple for creating series at least some of us are really looking forward to.

I am struggling to think of a series on Netflix or Amazon that I am as excited about another season of. And Disney+ has a great back-catalog but beyond the one signature show, well, AppleTV+ is starting to look like the better bet for me.
