The comedy series “Mythic Quest” from Apple TV+, continues: In the 3rd season initially separate the ways, but the proven cast around Rob McElhenney remains together in Mythic Quest season 3.
“Mythic Quest” revolves primarily around the fictional online role-playing game of the same name, which is at the center of the Apple TV+ series. This plot is gallantly woven into a workplace comedy storyline that, after two successful seasons, will be retold on Apple TV+ starting Friday, November 11, 2022.
“Mythic Quest”: comedy series and fictional role-playing game hit in one
In the new episodes, the aim for the creators at Mythic Quest Studios is to build on the success of “Raven’s Banquet” (the subtitle of the game and also the series name of Season 1). This is easier said than done, because two developers Ian and Poppy have started their own company GrimPop Studios. Therefore, Mythic Quest is now primarily about keeping the MMORPG alive.
Fourth season already ordered
The solution is supposed to be a big expansion to Mythic Quest – Raven’s Banquet. However, the chaos that Ian and Poppy have left behind means that this is not so easy to achieve. The ten new episodes of the third season will show what happens next in the studios. A fourth season, by the way, has also already been ordered. So it’s clear that the story of “Mythic Quest” won’t end anytime soon.
The successful comedy series “Mythic Quest” from Apple TV+ has been extended by two seasons at once. Following the release of the first trailer, the streaming service has now finally announced the start date for the new episodes.
Previously, the actors Rob McElhenney and Anthony Hopkins had announced the extension of the series in a video, but only narrowed down the time period to 2022.
Is there a trailer for Mythic Quest season 3?
A trailer for season 3 of “Mythic Quest” was finally released at San Diego Comic-Con 2022. In it, you can see what happens next with Poppy and Ian after they leave Mythic Quest to run GrimPop Studios together.
David, meanwhile, must salvage the shambles that is Mythic Quest. With Jo by his side, who is now his assistant again, he now learns what it’s really like to be the boss. Brad returns from prison and makes a fresh start as a janitor.
Mythic Quest Season 3: Storyline
After Ian and Poppy get back together, there are a lot of changes ahead. Namely, the two have quit Mythic Quest and are looking for a new game idea together. Meanwhile, David has secured Jo again as his assistant to keep Mythic Quest running.
Brad, meanwhile, is back from prison after taking the fall for Jo’s insider trading. So, unlike before, the season will take place in multiple locations. In addition to the Mythic Quest office, we now see how things are going at Poppy and Ian’s new company GrimPop Studios. We also take a detour to Berkely University, where Rachel is beginning her studies.
Mythic Quest Season 3: Cast
Most of the cast members will return in their familiar roles. Meanwhile, it is not known if season 3 of “Mythic Quest” will also feature new faces.
- Rob McElhenney (“Fargo”) as Creative Director Ian Grimm
- Charlotte Nicdao (“Thor: Judgment Day”) as lead developer Poppy Li

You’ll have to say goodbye to F. Murray Abraham (“The Orville“) as lead writer C.W. Longbottom in upcoming episodes, unfortunately. A spokesperson for Lionsgate, the studio producing the series, confirmed in a statement to industry publication Vanity Fair: “F. Murray Abraham will not be returning for the third season of Mythic Quest. Beyond that, we do not comment on personnel matters.”
Mythic Quest Season 3: Production
Creators of the series are main actor Rob McElhenney himself, as well as Charlie Day (“Hotel Artemis”) and Megan Ganz (“Modern Family”). Due to the end of season 2, which would have also worked as a series finale, fans were unsure for a long time whether season 3 was planned.
Presumably, the sequel was delayed because McElhenney and Day were busy filming another season of their series “It’s always Sunny in Philadelphia.
