Tv Season Info

With the quarantine finally over, the new season of "Mythic Quest" finds everyone back in the office (well, almost everyone), attempting to build upon the success of Raven's Banquet by launching an epic new expansion, but Ian (Rob McElhenney) and the newly promoted co-creative director, Poppy (Charlotte Nicdao), struggle with the game's direction. Meanwhile, C.W. (F. Murray Abraham) reconciles some unresolved issues from his past, the testers (Ashly Burch and Imani Hakim) test the bounds of an office romance, and David (David Hornsby) loses yet another woman in his life as Jo (Jessie Ennis) leaves him to assist Brad (Danny Pudi).

Critic Reviews for Mythic Quest Season 2

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (9)

Some of the developments are more successful than others, but that hit-or-miss quality doesn't detract from the overall giddiness of the nine episodes.

May 12, 2021 | Full Review…

After a season introducing the cast and trying out different dynamics, Season 2 sees the writing team pulling almost all the right levers.

May 10, 2021 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

What Mythic Quest does so superbly is ground its zanier premise with these emotionally honest moments, particularly between Ian and Poppy, two high-strung high-achievers with bags and bags of vulnerabilities.

Jun 4, 2021 | Full Review…

Through [Charlotte Nicdao's Poppy Li], the writers of Mythic Quest are challenging cultural stereotypes about the kinds of women who get to get ahead in business

May 18, 2021 | Full Review…

Too often there's something disposable about "Mythic Quest," but those C.W. episodes nearly broke me. It's a tremendous achievement buried inside something that has the potential to be so much more.

May 10, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

It sets you up with the promise of typical comedic hijinks, and then packs quite an emotional punch when you least expect it. That's the cheat code to its appeal: just when it's being silly, it steals in a sneakily mature moment.

May 21, 2021 | Full Review…

With some true gems over the course of Season 2, there's plenty of reason to put Mythic Quest in your weekly rotation.

May 18, 2021 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Mythic Quest triumphs once again in a stupendous second season that is never too generous with laughs in a post-pandemic world. [Full Review in Spanish]

May 16, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

People like this exist in workplaces, and unlike workplace comedies that have made them into adorkable icons, Mythic Quest makes audiences reckon with the vocational landscape.

May 10, 2021 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Mythic Quest suffers a bit in its need to make the majority of its cast likable, as well as like each other... This tension makes the new season a little less funny than the first, but there's still an edge there that's fresh.

May 10, 2021 | Full Review…

Season 2 is an uneven mess at times, but the good outweighs the bad mostly thanks to the great roster of characters and the talented actors behind them.

May 10, 2021 | Full Review…

Mythic Quest's Season 2 premiere is immediately more comfortable in its own skin, managing to kickstart a brand of comedy that's appropriately cynical while still finding ways to make us root for its characters.

Audience Reviews for Mythic Quest: Season 2

  • 1d ago
    The writers have hit their stride. I think Rob McElhenney's character is the only weak point. It is seems like he's trying to avoid being 'Mac' from It's Always Sunny, but its making his character seem kinda muted surrounded by very quirky people in the show.

    Well written and entertaining. Smart and funny.
  • Jun 04, 2021
    The premise is promising but it fails in execution. The characters are just too two dimensional to root for or laugh at, the dialogue seems to borrow a lot from always philly with snarky quick comments driving the plot but it doesnt work here since the attempted "world building" of an mmorpg company needs a lot more depth than that.
  • Jun 04, 2021
    Best workplace sitcom since The Office. I think it could be one of the best series ever if it has a long enough run.
  • Jun 02, 2021
    Great comedy with some drama. Feels like a modern Office.
  • May 31, 2021
    Once again, great! Can't wait to keep watching.
  • May 26, 2021
    Quite predictably, the show turned shit in season 2. Probably because the first one was so great. Poppi, the key character, became a neurotic manipulative power hungry bitch which killed the loveable viby the show had. Other than that, nothing but screaming, temper tantrums and confusion. Pity.
  • May 24, 2021
    It's Big Bang Theory, except it's a surface level send-up of the gaming/tech industries. All of the tropes you'd expect are here, if you'd never worked in tech before. There's the narcissistic founder, the socially awkward nerd, the other socially awkward nerd, more general nerds, haha did we mention there are nerds? Also a marketing guy with no scruples and an eccentric writer. It's a shame because this show should have potential. There are brilliant comedy writers on staff, but it always feels like they're writing about characters they don't know in a setting they aren't familiar with about things they don't understand.
  • May 24, 2021
    This show is simply insulting on every level.
  • May 22, 2021
    Might be worth a watch if you're a gamer who will understand the silliness of the show and the comedy derived from it. I thought it had it's moments and worth persisting with it but for most people it's a pass.
