Mythic Quest is losing its head writer.
F. Murray Abraham, who plays writer C.W Longbottom on the Apple TV+ series, will not be back for season three.
"F. Murray Abraham will not be returning to season three of Mythic Quest," Lionsgate, the studio that produces the show, said in a statement. "Beyond that, we do not comment on matters concerning personnel."
The series, which centers on a fictional video game studio that produces the game Mythic Quest, also stars Rob McElhenney, Ashly Burch, Jessie Ennis, Charlotte Nicdao, Imani Hakim, David Hornsby and Danny Pudi. All other series regulars are expected to return.
Abraham, 82, played a hardened sci-fi writer responsible for writing the backstories for the studio's games.
In October, Mythic Quest was renewed for seasons three and four. In a video celebrating the show's renewal, it was revealed that the third season would stream sometime "after Ted Lasso season two, but before Ted Lasso season three."
It sounds like we can expect the show back before the end of 2022.
Abraham, who won an Oscar in 1984 for his performance in Amadeus, spoke highly of his time on Mythic Quest last year.
"I've done a whole lot of work and there are certain things I look for. One of [them] is community," he told Vanity Fair. "To find that kind of connection and humanity is so hard because it's so segmented."
The veteran actor echoed his adoration for the show whenever he got the chance.
"Don't get me started on how much I like this show," he told The Independent before the start of the show's second season. "After Amadeus, I became known as a ‘heavy', but I've always preferred to make people laugh...But in most of the villains that I've played, there's always a hint of humor. Fortunately for me, the people who run Mythic Quest recognize that in me and I'm forever grateful."
