Mythic Quest, the workplace comedy from Apple TV+, is expanding into a new show, Mere Mortals. In its eight-episode season, Mere Mortals will step away from the creatives at the helm of Mythic Quest, and instead focus on the impact that game has had on its employees, players, and fans. The show will take inspiration from Mythic Quest's breakaway episodes that include "A Dark Quiet Death," "Backstory," "Everlight," and the upcoming "Sarian," which will air this Friday, December 16.
"We're excited for our new Apple TV+ series, Mere Mortals," says Jason Altman, executive producer and SVP of Ubisoft Film & Television. "It will build upon the signature departure episodes of Mythic Quest, and expand the universe of our first original series."
Mere Mortals is written by Mythic Quest alums Ashly Burch, John Harris, and Katie McElhenney, and executive-produced by Altman, Megan Ganz, Rob McElhenney, David Hornsby, Charlie Day, and Margaret Boykin. Mythic Quest, currently in its third season, and Mere Mortals can be watched exclusively on Apple TV+.
