Special episode, “Everlight,” from director, co-creator, executive producer and star Rob McElhenney and written by Ashly Burch to debut in anticipation of season two premiere on 7 May
Apple today announced that Everlight, a special standalone season one episode from the highly regarded workplace comedy series Mythic Quest, will launch on Friday 16 April on Apple TV+. The second season of the critically acclaimed, hit series Mythic Quest debuts on Friday 7 May.
In Everlight, the creative team, once again, presents a relatable subject that people all over the world are currently facing — the return to offices and co-workers. In addition to the award-winning returning ensemble cast, special guest star Academy Award winner Sir Anthony Hopkins (“Silence of the Lambs,” “The Father”) lends his voice to the episode. This new, half-hour special episode finds the team behind the biggest multiplayer video game of all-time returning to the office for their annual Everlight party, with Poppy and Ian rigging a LARP (Live Action Role-Play) tournament in an underdog’s favour.
Executive producer and star, Rob McElhenney, said:
“Everlight is a special episode that addresses the practical and emotional difficulties of returning to normalcy. 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.”
