The hit Apple TV+ comedy series “Mythic Quest” is back for its third season, but fans have noticed the absence of F. Murray Abraham’s character, C.W. Longbottom. The explanation behind his sudden departure is unfortunately due to two sexual misconduct claims against the actor.
Co-created by Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day, and Megan Ganz, “Mythic Quest” follows a diverse cast of employees as they navigate working at a popular video game company. The critically acclaimed show has been praised for its humorous and heartfelt portrayal of workplace dynamics.
According to a report from the Hollywood Reporter, F. Murray Abraham was let go from the series after season two due to two alleged sexual misconduct claims. Before the second incident was reported, Abraham was asked to keep his distance from some of the actresses on set.
Lionsgate Television, the production company behind “Mythic Quest”, released a statement saying, “We take allegations of misconduct seriously and investigate them thoroughly. As a matter of corporate policy, we do not discuss our personnel actions”.
In season three, fans were shocked to see C.W. Longbottom killed off in the first episode. Season two featured an extended look at the character’s backstory, making his sudden departure all the more surprising. In a previous interview, McElhenney expressed his disappointment at not having Abraham on the show but promised a fitting tribute to the beloved character.
Despite Abraham’s departure, “Mythic Quest” has been renewed for a fourth season, and a spin-off series called “Mere Mortals” has been ordered. All three seasons of the series can be streamed on Apple TV+.
This unfortunate news highlights the ongoing issue of sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry. Production companies must take allegations seriously and conduct thorough investigations to ensure a safe and respectful workplace for all cast and crew members.
