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+.

It's time to once again believe in the underdog as Apple TV+ released its first trailer for season 3 of Ted Lasso. Set to You Can’t Always Get What You Want by The Rolling Stones, the trailer teases that season 3 will chronicle AFC Richmond's return to the Premier League.

Ted (We're the Millers' Jason Sudeikis), Roy Kent (Thor: Love and Thunder's Brett Goldstein), and Coach Beard (Brendan Hunt of Horrible Bosses 2) are in an uphill battle as AFC Richmond is to picked to finish last in the league. Noticeably missing from the coaching staff is Nate (The Kid Who Would Be King's Nick Mohammed), who left Richmond to work for Rupert (Bridgerton's Anthony Head) as the head coach of West Ham United. However, the job may not be all that glorious as Nate is seen drinking alone with a hint of misery on his face.

Jerry and Marge Go Large trailer games the lottery system
Annette Bening and Bryan Cranston in Jerry and Marge Go Large.

Most people who play the lottery don't necessarily expect to win. Instead, it's the dream of winning that drives the majority of lottery players. No matter what the odds are, they're hopeful that the next time will finally be their turn to win. It's extremely difficult to predict when or if you'll win, but as demonstrated in the first trailer for Jerry and Marge Go Large, it's not always impossible.

The upcoming film is based upon the true story of Jerry (Bryan Cranston) and Marge Selbee (Annette Bening). They're the couple that figured out that the Massachusetts State Lottery had a mathematical loophole that greatly increased their chances of winning if they kept playing at a certain level. The scam worked so well that Jerry and Marge brought in their friends and fellow citizens to use the prize money to help revitalize their small town. Unfortunately for Jerry and Marge, a group of college kids have also figured out how to rig the system. And they're muscling the couple and the town out of the game.

The business world is fraught with cutthroat competition, backstabbing, wealth in excess, and bloated self-interest. But when this all exists within a single family, things can get really ugly. Such is the case with Succession, the Emmy Award-winning HBO series about the wealthy Roy family and patriarch Logan Roy's (Brian Cox) struggle with letting go of the media empire he built and finding a capable successor to take the reins. He has four grown children, each with their own strengths (and breathtaking weaknesses). But in Logan's eyes, none of them is truly worthy of his company, Waystar Royco.
