AppleTV+ Reveals Premiere Dates for New Drama 'The Mosquito Coast' and Season 2 of 'Mythic Quest'

AppleTV+ has today announced the premiere dates for the upcoming original drama series The Mosquito Coast and the upcoming second season of the original comedy series Mythic Quest.

The first two episodes of drama The Mosquito Coast will be released on Friday, April 30, with new episodes being released weekly. The first season will run for seven episodes.

Based on the novel by Paul Theroux, the gripping adventure and layered character drama follows the dangerous journey of a radical idealist and brilliant inventor, Allie Fox, who uproots his family for Mexico when they suddenly find themselves on the run from the US government.

The drama stars Justin Theroux, Melissa George, Logan Polish and Gabriel Bateman.

Neil Cross developed the drama. He executive produces with Justin Theroux, Paul Theroux, Edward L. McDonnell, Bob Bookman, Alan Gasmer, Peter Jaysen and director Rupert Wyatt. Fremantle Productions and Veritas Entertainment Group produce.

The second season of Mythic Quest will debut on Friday, May 7.

With the quarantine finally over, the new season finds everyone back in the office (well, almost everyone), attempting to build upon the success of Raven's Banquet by launching an epic new expansion, but Ian and the newly promoted co-creative director, Poppy, struggle with the game's direction. Meanwhile, C.W. reconciles some unresolved issues from his past, the testers test the bounds of an office romance, and David loses yet another woman in his life as Jo leaves him to assist Brad.

The comedy stars Rob McElhenney, Charlotte Nicdao, David Hornsby, Jessie Ennis, Ashly Burch, Imani Hakim, Danny Pudi and F. Murray Abraham.

McElhenney created the comedy with Charlie Day and Megan Ganz. They executive produce with Hornsby, Michael Rotenberg, Nicholas Frenkel, Jason Altman, Danielle Kreinik and Gérard Guillemot. Lionsgate Television, RCG Productions, 3 Arts Entertainment and Ubisoft Film & Television produce.
