What Happened to C.W. Longbottom in Mythic Quest Season 3?

The duo, Ian and Poppy, are about to embark on a new game in Apple TV Plus’ latest run, but where is F. Murray Abraham’s character? We explain what happened to C.W. Longbottom in Mythic Quest Season 3.

Even though Season 3 will run until the end of January 2023, fans can rest knowing that Apple TV has already green-lit Season 4.

Created by Charlie Day, Rob McElhenney, and Megan Ganz, the American comedy series first premiered in 2020, following a fictional game studio developing the titular MMORPG, starring Rob McElhenney, Charlotte Nicdao, Ashly Burch, Jessie Ennis, Imani Hakim, and David Hornsby.

What Happened to C.W. Longbottom in Mythic Quest Season 3?

Mythic Quest Season 3 Episode 1, titled Across the Universe, saw the team prepare to celebrate C.W. Longbottom’s party, after he was expected to return from his year-long book tour.

However, in a surprising turn of events, David is asked to read a letter from C.W. which turns out to be a suicide note.

The character reveals his fatal prognosis and explains that he decided to take his own life, preceding a declaration of love towards his teammates.

The episode ends with the group reminiscing fond times with C.W. and deciding to drink his coffee and cough syrup concoction as a sign of respect.

F. Murray Abraham’s Mythic Quest Departure

C.W.’s sudden exit from the series is all because of actor F. Murray Abraham’s surprising departure from the show earlier this year.

Deadline reported back in April that Abraham would not be returning for Season 3 and shared the following statement:

“F. Murray Abraham will not be returning to Season 3 of Mythic Quest. Beyond that we do not comment on matters concerning personnel.”

The exact reason behind Abraham’s exit is still unknown and fans of the show were understandably shocked by the character’s sudden end.
