Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet release trailer for new series

Mythic Quest star F Murray Abraham has apologised for behaviour on set that led him to being fired from the show. 

Earlier this week, it was reported the 83-year-old star had been let go from his role as fantasy author C.W. Longbottom last year following accusations of sexual misconduct. 

Abraham did not immediately respond to the claims, but has now confirmed the reports, stating there were “jokes” that offended his castmates. 

In a new statement to Entertainment Weekly, the actor – best known for his starring role in The White Lotus season two – said: “This is a sincere and deeply felt apology.

“Though never my intention to offend anyone, I told jokes, nothing more, that upset some of my colleagues and as a result lost a great job with wonderful people. 

“I have grown in my understanding from this experience, and I hope they will forgive me.”

Rolling Stone was first to break the claims, with production sources saying there were two separate incidents on set that required intervention. 

While the site did not go into detail, it was stated Abraham was instructed to “keep away from some actresses on set” after the first incident. 

After a second incident, show creator and star Rob McElhenney was informed and Abraham was let go from his position. 

Mythic Quest returned with Abraham’s character C.W. written off the show. 

A major role in the cast, C.W. often butted heads with his younger colleagues due to some of his outdated views and behaviour.

As the head writer of Mythic Quest’s titular online multiplayer game, C.W died between seasons two and three. 

In the premiere episode of season three, Across The Universe, C.W. left a letter saying he had a terminal illness and wanted to “script his own ending”. 

He then proceeded to “Thelma and Louise” himself by driving off the Grand Canyon. 

Following Rolling Stone’s report of the matter, Lionsgate said: “We take allegations of misconduct seriously and investigate them thoroughly.

“As a matter of corporate policy, we do not discuss our personnel actions.”
