Apple TV+ today announced that its broadly acclaimed and global hit murder mystery comedy series, “The Afterparty,” from Academy Award-winners Chris Miller and Phil Lord, is set to return for season two on Wednesday, July 12, 2023. Told through new and popular film genres, the 10-episode second season will premiere on Apple TV+ with the first two episodes, followed by one new episode every Wednesday through September 6, 2023.
Created by Miller, each episode of “The Afterparty” is a genre-bending comedy that explores a different character’s account of one fateful evening, all told through the lens of popular film genres and unique visuals to match the storyteller’s perspective.

In season two, a wedding is ruined when the groom is murdered and every guest is a suspect. Detective Danner (Haddish) returns to help Aniq (Richardson) and Zoë (Chao) solve whodunnit by questioning family members, star-crossed lovers, and business partners, and hearing each suspect’s retelling of the weekend, each with their own unique perspective and visual style.
