Reports are coming out of a convention in North Carolina this past weekend that Starburns Industries (producers of Harmonquest) head and all around nice guy Dino Stamatopoulos fake punched a fan dressed up as “Pickle Rick” leading someone to call the cops on Dino. Dino has since publicly claimed that fans of Rick and Morty and Harmontown are both “the worst” and swears he’ll never take part in a live show again. I’m not sure if this is the type of action we can expect in the upcoming just-announced third season of Harmonquest, but I sure hope so. The third season, with ten episodes, kicks off Sunday, August 18th on VRV.
“HarmonQuest” is a comedy series created by Dan Harmon and Spencer Crittenden that follows a colorful cast of characters through a fantasy roleplaying game with a live audience. The show is part animation, part live-action, and all fun as comedians Erin McGathy and Jeff B. Davis, along with game master Crittenden, Dan Harmon, and a special guest complete a new Pathfinder adventure each episode.
Special guests this season include Kate Miccuci (Garfunkel and Oates, “Steven Universe”), Reggie Watts (Musician and comedian “The Late Late Show with James Corden”), D’Arcy Carden (“The Good Place,” “Barry,” “Broad City”), and Tom Kenny (“SpongeBob SquarePants”), alongside actors and comedians Carl Tart, Jared Logan, Jessica McKenna, Joel Kim Booster, Matt Gourley, and Tawny Newsome.
The world has been destroyed by the demon helling! To make things worse, Fondue (Dan Harmon) is dead, and his spirit is trapped inside a sword. It’s now up to Buer (Erin McGathy), Boneweevil (Jeff B. Davis), and a mysterious newcomer to find a way to undo the damage done and repair the mistakes that led to the end of the world (and were like, definitely their fault). Seeking the “Beast of Beginning” to reset their past, our heroes traverse time and space to set the world right, but run into increasingly dangerous complications caused by trying to alter the fabric of reality itself.
