Look online, look at social media,” McElhenney told us last year. “There’s no shortage of the places the human condition can take you to satirize.”

McElhenney revealed last month that writing on the season had already begun, and he also dropped a quarantine episode of his Apple TV+ series, Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet.
