What comes after “Raven’s Banquet?” “The Crow’s Dessert,” perhaps? Maybe “Corvus’ Early Bedtime?” OK, good ideas are clearly lacking, but I’m not alone: Ian (played by Rob McElhenney) and the newly promoted co-creative director Poppy (Charlotte Nicdao) are also at a loss when it comes to following up “Mythic Quest’s” last expansion pack, and they’ll need a name as awe-inspiring as “Raven’s Banquet” if they want to keep their hit video game at the top of the charts.
Thus is the early conundrum introduced in “Mythic Quest” Season 2, the follow-up to McElhenney’s well-received Apple TV+ comedy, as well as its highly praised quarantine episode from last summer. Fans can get an early glimpse at Ian and Poppy’s brainstorming process in the new teaser-trailer below, and they’ll be able to dig into the first full episode when Season 2 premieres Friday, May 7.
Apple TV+ revealed the teaser, release date, and more during the series’ panel at the Television Critics Association 2021 Winter Press Tour. Check out the official synopsis below:
With the quarantine finally over, Season 2 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).
“Mythic Quest” is created by Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day, and Megan Ganz, all of whom also executive produce alongside Michael Rotenberg and Nicholas Frenkel for 3Arts Entertainment as well as Jason Altman, Danielle Kreinik, and Gerald Guillemot for Ubisoft Film and Television. David Hornsby also serves as executive producer, in addition to his role in the series. McElhenney, Day, Ganz, Rotenberg, Frenkel, and Hornsby all first collaborated on “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” the ongoing FX comedy series.
Watch the teaser trailer below.
“Mythic Quest” Season 2 will premiere Friday, May 7 on Apple TV+.
