Fans of Apple TV+'s Mythic Quest have been having a pretty good week, starting with a look at the official second season trailer that finds Rob McElhenney's Ian Grimm and Charlotte Nicdao's Poppy Li not only partners but also a well-oiled machine- for now. But viewers won't have to wait until next month to see welcome the gang back, not with the streaming series dropping the half-hour bonus episode "Everlight" today.

Directed by McElhenney and written by Ashly Burch, "Everlight" finds the team returning to the offices post-pandemic for the annual Everlight party- and yes, Anthony Hopkins is lending his voice for the episode. "He sent me four takes and everyone was perfect and that was it," McElhenney said of Hopkins, who he met via producer and guest star Craig Mazin. "The irony of it was that when we got him on the phone, I said, 'What time is it over there?' But he was in Los Angeles. And he said his street and I'm not exaggerating, he lives a block and a half away from me." Here's a look at the trailer for the episode, followed by a chance to hear Hopkins' narration for yourselves:

Here's a look at the official trailer for the second season of Mythic Quest, hitting Apple TV+ screens on May 7 (and make sure to check out the details on this week's special episode following):

"Mythic Quest" Season 2 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 (McElhenney) and the newly promoted co-creative director, Poppy (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).
