Today at a special Mythic Quest panel at the San Diego Comic-Con, Apple TV+ and the cast and creators of the hit workplace comedy series confirmed that the series will return this fall, and unveiled a first-look teaser at the highly-anticipated third season.
Mythic Quest 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 Craig Mazin, and shared a glimpse into what fans can expect this upcoming season.
Mythic Quest follows a group of video game developers tasked with building worlds, molding heroes and creating legends, but the most hard-fought battles don’t occur in the game — they happen in the office.
In season three, as Ian and Poppy navigate the gaming world and their partnership at the newly formed GrimPop Studios, Dana is forced to play mediator to her bosses’ incessant bickering.
Back at Mythic Quest, David settles into his new role as the boss where he truly finds himself in charge for the first time with Jo returning as his assistant — more loyal and militant than ever; and Carol attempts to figure out where she fits in after a new promotion.
At Berkeley, Rachel struggles to balance her morals with capitalism, while a post-prison Brad tries to return to society as a reformed man.
Co-created by McElhenney, Charlie Day and Ganz (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), the series stars McElhenney, Nicdao, Hornsby, who also executive produces, Pudi, Burch, Hakim, Ennis and Naomi Ekperigin.
Mythic Quest is executive produced by McElhenney and 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 also executive produce.
