F. Murray Abraham leaving Apple TV+’s ‘Mythic Quest’

F. Murray Abraham won’t be resuming his role in the Apple TV+ series “Mythic Quest,” according to Vanity Fair.

A spokesperson for Lionsgate, the studio that produces the show, confirmed in a statement, “F. Murray Abraham will not be returning to season three of Mythic Quest. Beyond that, we do not comment on matters concerning personnel.”

Vanity Fair notes that the 82-year-old actor, who won an Academy Award for his 1984 performance as Antonio Salieri in Amadeus, was a key member of the “Mythic Quest” ensemble. He plays the character of C.W. Longbottom, a Nebula Award–winning writer who creates narratives for the video game company at the center of the comedy series. 

Created by Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Megan Ganz, “Mythic Quest” is executive produced by McElhenney and Day under their RCG banner, Michael Rotenberg and Nicholas Frenkel on behalf of 3Arts, and Jason Altman, Danielle Kreinik and Gérard Guillemot for Ubisoft Film and Television. David Hornsby and Megan Ganz also executive produce. The series is produced for Apple TV+ by the Lionsgate, 3 Arts Entertainment and Ubisoft.
