With season 14 in the record books and Paddy's doors closed for a long winter's nap, FXX's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia will now surpass ABC's The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet as longest-running live-action comedy series. Now that's a title Mac (Rob McElhenney), Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Charlie (Charlie Day), Dee (Kaitlin Olson), and Frank (Danny DeVito) will be more than happy to hang behind the bar – and one they're expected to hold onto for awhile. But The Gang does not live by Paddy's alone – so to keep things flowin', they continue to extend their creative efforts into other arenas – both in front of and behind the camera.
Case-in-point: McElhenney and Day, who are executive producing the new Apple TV+ comedy series Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet – co-created by McElhenney and Megan Ganz, and produced Lionsgate, 3 Arts Entertainment, and Ubisoft. Now with only days to go before the 9-episode, half-hour series is set to premiere (Friday, February 7), the streaming service is taking viewers behind the scenes with McElhenney, Danny Pudi, Imani Hakim, and David Hornsby to learn more about what they can expect from the series:
Taking its turn at the Television Critics Association (TCA) winter press event in January, Apple TV+ announced that the series has been picked up for a second season. Set to premiere on Friday, February 7, Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet joins other series like Little America, Home Before Dark, Dickinson, See, Servant, and For All Mankind in getting a second season order.
In the following preview, we think we're seeing an underlying "theme" taking shape: when in doubt, McElhenney's Ian thinks his being shirtless and greased up can explain pretty much everything…
Now here's a look back at the official trailer – featuring Ian in all of his well-intended-but-ego-stroking glory:
Meet the team behind the biggest multiplayer video game of all time. But in a workplace focused on building worlds, molding heroes, and creating legends, the most hard-fought battles don't occur in the game—they happen in the office.
Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet is executive produced by McElhenney and Day; Michael Rotenberg and Nicholas Frenkel (3arts), Jason Altman, Danielle Kreinik, and Gérard Guillemot (Ubisoft), co-star David Hornsby (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia) and Megan Ganz (Modern Family, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia).
