Rob McElhenney’s Mythic Quest has made it through its first season and done well enough that Apple is renewing the exclusive video game developer comedy series for a second season. That said, it would appear that fans of Mythic Quest will be able to look forward to another treat ahead of the new season. Apple TV+ is apparently getting a bonus standalone episode for Mythic Quest Season One and it will be available to view this April.
Apple and Ubisoft announced the bonus Mythic Quest Season One episode via a press release on April 6, 2021. According to the release, the bonus episode, a standalone episode titled “Everlight” will be available for viewing on Apple TV+ on April 16, 2021. The subject matter features a return to offices (a situation many in the world are facing as measures and vaccine rollout against the COVID-19 pandemic continue) and will feature special guest star and award-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins of Hannibal series fame.
The special episode of Mythic Quest Season One comes ahead of the launch of Season Two coming in May 2021 after the series was announced for renewal back in February 2021. Having been announced during E3 2019 at Ubisoft’s showcase event, Mythic Quest has garnered praise and enough of a following that Apple TV+ was happy to renew it as an exclusive show on its platform. On the matter of Mythic Quest standalone episode Everlight, Rob McElhenney hopes that it’s something audiences will connect with as many are already facing the situations presented in the episode.
“‘Everlight’ is a special episode that addresses the practical and emotional difficulties of returning to normalcy,” said McElhenney. “It's full of hope and joy and optimism for a bright future. Ahead of our upcoming second season, we felt it was the perfect way (and the perfect time) to invite the audience back into the world of 'Mythic Quest.’”
With the Mythic Quest bonus episode Everlight launching on April 16 shortly, it should at least be something sate fans as they await the full return of the show next month on May 7.
