Actor F. Murray Abraham will not be returning for “Mythic Quest” Season 3, Vanity Fair reports. Details surrounding his departure from him are unclear.
Abraham played head writer CW Longbottom on the Apple TV+ comedy series, which revolves around a fictional video game studio run by Ian Grimm (Rob McElhenney). Longbottom was a key role on the series, serving as the old-fashioned sci-fi novelist turned video game writer with delusions of grandeur. A Season 2 arc for the series revealed Longbottom’s backstory in flashback form, with Josh Brener filling the role.
In October of last year, “Mythic Quest” was renewed for a third and fourth season, and Longbottom’s story arc didn’t come to a conclusion at the end of Season 2, so Abraham’s departure is a surprise.
Abraham won an Oscar for his role in the 1984 film “Amadeus” and currently fills a key voice role on the Disney+ Marvel series “Moon Knight.”
Representatives for Lionsgate and Apple did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
