In Mythic Quest, McElhenney stars as Ian Grimm, the creative director of a games studio preparing a major expansion to the MMORPG it makes. Charlotte Nicdao is Poppy, the studio’s lead engineer, who often butts heads with Grimm. Danny Pudi plays Brad, the head of monetization, while head writer C.W. Longbottom is portrayed by F. Murray Abraham.
Other cast includes Ashly Burch, the longtime voice actor; Jessie Ennis, David Hornsby and Imani Hakim. Ubisoft Film & Television is one of Mythic Quest’s three production companies. The show’s second season premiered in May 2021 and it boasts a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
The third season will go into development later this year. The first two seasons are available to stream on Apple TV Plus.
