The team is officially divided and feeling great about that when Season 3 of Mythic Quest premieres Nov. 11 on Apple TV+. But it can't be long before chaos ensues, right?

In a just-released trailer for the streaming comedy, which you can watch below, those left at the company that produced the titular video game are thrilled the game's creator Ian Grimm (Rob McElhenney) and engineer-turned-co-creative director Poppy Li (Charlotte Nicdao) have moved on to form their own company, GrimPop Studios. Ian and Poppy, too, are excited to be presenting a new game, Hera, which they call a "masterpiece."

But things aren't as good as they seem. Brad (Danny Pudi) may be out of jail and back at the company, but he has to start from the bottom, working as a janitor and getting up to who knows what when no one else is around (or at least looking at him). And David (David Hornsby) may have cut a deal for a screen adaptation, but doing so without Ian attached it bound to cause friction, if not also legal issues. 

Things are further split with Rachel (Ashley Burch) at Berkeley, trying to balance her personal moral stance with capitalism, and C.W. Longbottom (F. Murray Abraham) ... well, we're not sure where he is or if he's even still kicking, as Abraham is no longer a part of the cast and the absence is not mentioned in the trailer.

The show also stars Imani Hakim, Jessie Ennis, and Naomi Ekperigin. Season 3 guest stars include Joe Manganiello, Lindsey Kraft, and Casey Sander

Mythic Quest Season 3 launches with its first two episodes on Nov. 11 and then switches to a one episode per week format through Jan. 6, 2023. The series is executive produced by McElhenney and Charlie Day via RCG; Michael Rotenberg and Nicholas Frenkel on behalf of 3Arts; Jason Altman, Danielle Kreinik, and Gérard Guillemot for Ubisoft Film & Television; Hornsby, and Megan Ganz. Lionsgate, 3 Arts Entertainment and Ubisoft produce.

The show has a Metascore of 73, but Season 3 has not yet been sent for review.
