Mere Mortals is a Mythic Quest spinoff coming to Apple TV+
Apple TV+ has announced a Mythic Quest spinoff titled Mere Mortals, a new eight-episode extension series from Ashly Burch, John Howell Harris and Katie McElhenney, with Megan Ganz, Rob McElhenney, David Hornsby and Charlie Day serving as executive producers.
Mythic Quest, the critically-hailed, hit comedy series is currently in its third season, following Ian Grimm and Poppy Li as they venture beyond Mythic Quest and set up new studio GrimPop.
Mere Mortals will explore the lives of employees, players, and fans who are impacted by the game. The spinoff will take a page from the departure episodes of Mythic Quest, such as Sarian, which depicts how Ian and Poppy came to love video games, and last year’s Everlight.
These episodes all tie into the larger story of Mythic Quest, but stand on their own in terms of storytelling.
Mere Mortals will be produced for Apple TV+ by Lionsgate, 3 Arts Entertainment and Ubisoft.
Mythic Quest debuted on Apple TV+ in February 2020, and has since been renewed for both a third and fourth season.
