Apple TV+'s Mythic Quest Suffers Another COVID-19 Outbreak

Cast and crew are currently following "extensive health and safety protocols."


When It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia returns for Season 15 at some future date, its planned COVID-19 episode will, unfortunately, have more than its share of authenticity to lend: Variety is reporting that Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet (Sunny's Rob McElhenney other show) has just suffered its second COVID-19 outbreak in as many months.

As of this writing, there were a reported 16 cases of the coronavirus at Radford lot, the CBS studio lot where the Apple TV+ show is shot--and the largest outbreak of similar clusters in recent months at CBS overall. Grimly, CBS' Radford lot is considered "ground zero" for coronavirus cases on productions in all of Los Angeles. In the last month alone, that lot has racked up 41 cases.

"Several team members of the Lionsgate-produced television series Mythic Quest have tested positive for COVID-19," said a Lionsgate spokesperson (via Variety). "They are currently in quarantine, and other staff members have been notified. We are following the extensive health and safety protocols we have in place, and production on the series has been suspended since last Friday when we learned of the positive tests. The health and safety of our Mythic Quest team is our highest priority."

Of course, Mythic Quest is no stranger to quarantine. The series already did an episode about it, and as indicated above, the production previously had an outbreak. What's more, in Season 9 of Sunny, there was already the episode The Gang Gets Quarantined.
