One year ago, F. Murray Abraham mysteriously left from the show Mythic Quest prior to the airing of its third season. The reason for his sudden departure was not revealed at the time, but one year later a new report in Rolling Stone magazine and other outlets revealed some of the details.  According to sources, the 83-year-old was let go from the series after two sexual misconduct complaints. After the first incident, Abraham was given a warning regarding his alleged behavior and was told to stay away from some of the show’s actresses. When the second incident occurred Rob McElhenney, the creator and star of the show, was informed and Abraham was written off the show at the start of the third season.

A spokesperson for Lionsgate stated “We take allegations of misconduct seriously and investigate them thoroughly. As a matter of corporate policy, we do not discuss our personnel actions.” None of the shows creators or cast members have commented on the allegations.

Abraham played the character C.W. Longbottom, an old-school writer with an abundance of inappropriate remarks. When the show returned for its third season last November, Abraham’s character was diagnosed with a terminal illness and had an off-screen death.

After his departure from Mythic Quest, Abraham was cast on season two of HBO’s The White Lotus. His character, Bert Di Grasso, portrayed sexist attitudes about woman and dating that were often challenged by his son, Michael Imperioli, and his grandson, Adam DiMarco.
