Mythic Quest, the Apple+ original comedy series about a game studio building a fantasy MMO, is coming back for a second season. Season 2 will debut on May 7 for all Apple TV+ subscribers.
Since the first season, the production team and cast of Mythic Quest found a workaround for the work delay amid the pandemic by doing a quarantine episode, similar to the charity table reads we saw so many of when the quarantine first took effect in many places. But now the show is returning in full force for its sophomore season from Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Megan Ganz.
The in-universe MMO, Raven's Banquet is set to launch its first major expansion in this new season, which introduces new struggles and situations for the development team to resolve. Here's a more detailed, albeit spoiler-filled synopsis of season two. If you haven't seen season one and don't want to know these details, skip to the bottom.
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).
The first season ran for ten 30-minute episodes and all of them are available on Apple TV+ at any time for streaming. While the Apple TV+ app comes on Apple-branded TVs out of the box, the app is also available on most smart TVs just like Netflix, Hulu, or any other streaming platform which all seem permanently at odds for our attention and subscription money.
While we don't cover TV reviews on OpenCritic, the series was a hit with critics and audiences alike, garnering a pristine 94% on Rotten Tomatoes from the former and 85% from the latter.
