"Mere Mortals" will explore the lives of employees, players and fans who are impacted by the game. The new extension series takes a page out of the acclaimed departure episodes of "Mythic Quest," including the upcoming episode "Sarian," set to make its global debut on Apple TV+ this Friday; last year's "Everlight," the special episode that earned a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Narrator for Anthony Hopkins; season one's "A Dark Quiet Death"; "Backstory!" from "Mythic Quest" season two; and, the widely celebrated standalone episode, "Mythic Quest: Quarantine."
Currently in its third season, "Mythic Quest" is a global hit sitcom from creators Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Megan Ganz that has been hailed by critics as "hilarious and endearing," "a ton of fun," and "the best workplace comedy on TV." The series received an early season three and four renewal, and boasts a Certified Fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes.
"Mere Mortals" is written by "Mythic Quest" star Ashly Burch, John Howell Harris and Katie McElhenney. The new series will be produced for Apple TV+ by Lionsgate, 3 Arts Entertainment and Ubisoft. Megan Ganz, Rob McElhenney, David Hornsby, Charlie Day, Nick Frenkel, Michael Rotenberg, Jason Altman and Margaret Boykin will serve as executive producers.
