Mythic Quest, the TV series about an MMO studio, is greenlit for another two seasons


One of the few bright spots of 2020 was the announcement of Apple TV+ show Mythic Quest, the Rob McElhenney-run comedy about a game studio building an MMO. It did well enough to get a second season, and now, it’s been greenlit for two more. Apple TV+ announced this week that it’s picked up the show for season three and four.

“Apple TV+ today announced a season three and four pickup of Mythic Quest, the hit sitcom from creators Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Megan Ganz[.] […] Boasting a 100% Certified Fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes, the series is set to open the writers’ room for season three later this year. Mythic Quest follows the team behind the biggest multiplayer video game of all time. In addition to McElhenney, who stars as the fictional company’s creative director, Ian Grimm, the ensemble cast includes Academy Award winner F. Murray Abraham, Danny Pudi, Imani Hakim, Charlotte Nicdao, Ashly Burch, Jessie Ennis and David Hornsby, who also executive produces.”

Back in May, MOP’s own Sam Kash examined a few episodes of the show to assess the actual gaming and specifically MMO issues that the series is addressing. “The writers and cast might not have nailed the landing on each one, but the fact that the showrunners truly attempted to include actual MMO topics and didn’t just use an MMO studio as a facade or flavor text for a generic sitcom is commendable,” he argued, noting that the show touches on everything from how studios deal with streamers and influencers to sorting out the push-and-pull of microtransactions and gameplay.

I’ve really enjoyed the show. It gives me vibes reminiscent of my favorite show, The Guild. :)


Really liked the first season of this show, especially the quarantine episode. Season 2 was a bit too antagonistic, but I’ll definitely check it out when it returns for season 3.

As we watched the last episode of season 2, we wondered how they could possibly continue the show after the (rather complete) ending we got.
I’m extremely excited because I loved the show, but have no clue where they’d go with it.

I watched the first season its a pretty decent show . In fact I find Apple +tv worth subbing to for a couple of a months a year because even though they don’t have as much content as Prime or Netflix what they have is all pretty decent stuff . Enjoying Foundation at the moment .


future plot
Question is what kind of new “dynamic” MMO Poppy has in mind, after leaving the series’ namesake?
I bet the words “metaverse” or “non-violent” will be used for a drinking game for these coming seasons! XD
