Ian and Poppy go out on their own in Mythic Quest season 3 trailer

After over a year away, Apple TV+‘s workplace comedy Mythic Quest is coming back for its third season. But unlike the first two seasons, this year’s episodes are following two different companies. Ian Grimm (Rob McElhenney) and Poppy Li (Charlotte Nicdao) have left Mythic Quest behind to form their own company, GrimmPop Studios. But as you can see in the new season 3 trailer, Ian’s ego may be a bit out of control. He was once the creative director of the most popular MMORPG in the world, and now he believes that means he belongs among history’s greatest trailblazers.

It falls to ex-game tester, Dana (Imani Hakim), to keep the peace between Ian and Poppy as their new receptionist. But they don’t pay Dana to be their moderator, and they’re already driving her up a wall. Meanwhile, David Brittlesbee (David Hornsby) has taken over at Mythic Quest, and he doesn’t quite seem to be up for the job. And he obviously has some bitter feelings towards his ex-colleagues, Ian and Poppy. David even tries to convince himself and others that Ian and Poppy were never that important to the game.

Similarly, Ian is having a tough time letting go of the gaming world that he spent so much time creating. Ian is especially put out that his character from the game will be portrayed in Hollywood by Joe Manganiello. Ian’s ongoing obsession appears to be one of the key areas of contention between himself and Poppy. They both have eccentric, and at times, over-the-top personalities, but if they don’t keep it together, GrimmPop could be a disaster.

Meanwhile at Mythic Quest, Danny Pudi’s Brad Bakshi is out of jail and now working for the company as a janitor instead of their head of monetization. Somehow, this makes Brad seem stranger than ever.

Jessie Ennis is also returning this season as David’s assistant, Jo, with Ashly Burch as Rachel. However, F. Murray Abraham will not be back as C.W. Longbottom.

Mythic Quest season 3 will begin with two new episodes on Friday, November 11. The remaining eight episodes of the season will be released weekly by Apple TV+.

Butcher powers up in a new trailer for The Boys season 3
The cast of The Boys.

One of the key changes that The Boys live-action series made from the comic book that inspired it is that the main characters have no superhuman powers of their own. They're just regular guys and one woman with enhanced strength. Somehow, they've managed to survive two seasons on Prime Video's breakout hit. However, it's time for Billy Butcher and his team to level the playing field.

In the gore-filled new trailer for The Boys season 3, a significant amount of time has passed since the events of season 2. Outwardly, Homelander was humbled by the revelation that he was dating a super Nazi code-named Stormfront. And while Homelander says all of the right things to the media, it's clear that he's losing his mind. It's so obvious that even Homelander's handlers are terrified of him. That's why Butcher has been given the chance to become the very thing he hates the most: A superhuman. But against Homelander, even having powers may not be enough.

When Hacks premiered on HBO Max in May 2021, no one quite knew what to expect from the series.

Created by Lucia Aniello, Paul W. Downs, and Jen Statsky, the show charts the relationship that grows between a legendary female stand-up comedian (Jean Smart's Deborah Vance) and a young comedy writer (Hannah Einbinder's Ava Daniels) after they are forced to begin working together. While it could have been handled in a variety of disappointing ways, the series' central pairing proved to be the perfect recipe for comedy gold.

HBO Max’s Hacks season 2 teaser is testing out new material

The first season of Hacks quickly became one of the most popular original comedy series on HBO Max last year. Audiences just couldn't resist the two lead characters, Deborah Vance (Jean Smart) and Ava Daniels (Hannah Einbinder). On paper, the two women have little in common beyond comedic chops. However, Deborah badly needed new jokes to freshen up her Las Vegas comedy act while Ava was haunted by an insensitive tweet she wrote years before that nearly destroyed her Hollywood dreams. But as Deborah's new comedy writer, Ava has a chance to prove herself again and put the controversy behind her.

The first teaser trailer for Hacks season 2 has arrived, and it shows us the ups and downs of Deborah and Ava's relationship. There are times when Deborah acts like Ava's best friend in the world, but as the trailer also shows, there are moments when Deborah's wrath toward Ava is intense and frightening.
