Created by McElhenney and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia cohorts Charlie Day and Megan Ganz, Mythic Quest “follows the team behind the biggest multiplayer video game of all time,” according to the official logline. In addition to McElhenney, the ensemble cast includes Oscar winner F. Murray Abraham, Community‘s Danny Pudi, Imani Hakim, Charlotte Nicdao, Ashly Burch, Jessie Ennis and fellow EP David Hornsby.
“Just like critics and audiences all over the world, we fell in love with Rob and his team’s sharp writing and full-of-heart, relatable characters that make up the world of Mythic Quest,” Apple TV+ head of programming Matt Cherniss said in a statement. “We can’t wait for viewers to see what’s in store in the upcoming seasons of this brilliant workplace comedy.”
Word of Seasons 3 and 4 comes nearly four months after the release of Mythic Quest‘s Season 2 finale, which earned a TVLine reader grade of “A-” (read recap and post mortem). TVLine’s Streaming Scorecard has been updated to reflect the multi-season pickup.
