Apple announced yesterday at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour that “Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet”, its upcoming scripted comedy about game developers, has already been renewed for second season ahead of its premiere next month.
Season 1 of “Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet” is set to debut on Apple TV+ on February 7.
Acording to Apple, this comedy show follows a team of video game developers as they navigate the challenges of running a popular online multiplayer video game.
Meet the team behind the biggest multiplayer video game of all time. But in a workplace focused on building worlds, molding heroes and creating legends, the most hard-fought battles don’t occur in the game—they happen in the office.
“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” star Rob McElhenney created “Mythic Quest” with Megan Ganz and is one of its executive producers. He also stars as the fictional company’s creative director, Ian Grimm. McElhenney says he likes Apple’s approach because the company doesn’t shy away from pushing back when it disagrees with specific aspects of the show.
Here’s the official trailer for “Mythic Quest”:
Aside from McElhenney, “Mythic Quest” also stars Academy Award winner F. Murray Abraham, Danny Pudi, Imani Hakim, Charlotte Nicdao, David Hornsby, Ashly Burch and Jessie Ennis.
