Mythic Quest Spin-Off Series “Mere Mortals” Begins Production In March

Get ready to enter the world of “Mere Mortals,” the new limited series from Apple TV+ that promises to take viewers on an unforgettable journey. Set to begin filming in March 2023, this new show is a companion series to the popular “Mythic Quest,” exploring the lives of employees, players, and fans who are impacted by the game at the center of the original series.

New Characters, Same World

Mythic Quest

“Mere Mortals” will feature an entirely new cast of characters, but the world they inhabit will be familiar to fans of “Mythic Quest.” As told almost entirely through in-game play, the show will follow five friends at the tail end of high school (and one younger brother) as they grow up and grow apart over the course of an ill-fated video game raid. This unique format promises to offer a fresh take on the coming-of-age story, combining real-world drama with the excitement and unpredictability of online gaming.

Mere Mortals’ Talented Production Team

The production team behind “Mere Mortals” boasts an impressive list of industry veterans and rising stars. Many of these individuals have worked together previously on “Mythic Quest,” the popular video game-inspired sitcom that serves as the companion series for “Mere Mortals.” As a result, fans of “Mythic Quest” can expect to see some familiar faces behind the camera and a similar sense of humor in the new spin-off series.

Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day, and Megan Ganz, who created “Mythic Quest,” are all listed as producers for “Mere Mortals.” McElhenney and Day are best known for their work on “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” a long-running comedy series that has achieved cult status. Ganz, meanwhile, has written for a number of popular sitcoms, including “Community” and “Modern Family.”

David Hornsby, who plays the role of David Brittlesbee on “Mythic Quest,” is also a producer for “Mere Mortals.” Hornsby is no stranger to the video game world, having lent his voice to a number of popular games, including “Mass Effect 2” and “Halo Wars.”

Jason Altman and Nicholas Frenkel of Ubisoft Film & Television, the studio behind “Mythic Quest,” are executive producers on “Mere Mortals.” Altman and Frenkel have previously worked on film adaptations of popular video game franchises such as “Assassin’s Creed” and “Splinter Cell,” bringing a wealth of experience to the production.

In addition to these established names, “Mere Mortals” also features a number of rising stars in the entertainment industry. Ashly Burch, who voices the character of Rachel on “Mythic Quest,” is a writer and voice actor who has worked on a number of popular video games, including “Horizon Zero Dawn” and “Life is Strange.” John Harris, who directed several episodes of “Mythic Quest,” is also a writer and director who has worked on shows such as “Black-ish” and “Superstore.”

With such a talented and experienced production team behind it, “Mere Mortals” is sure to be a hit with fans of “Mythic Quest” and newcomers alike. The connections between the crew members and their prior work in the video game and comedy industries suggest that the spin-off series will be just as funny and clever as its predecessor. Fans can’t wait to see what the team has in store for them when “Mere Mortals” begins filming in March of 2023.
