Created by Christopher Miller, ‘The Afterparty‘ is an exciting crime comedy series that covers a variety of sub-genres in each episode. Will The Afterparty season 2 return? Let’s find out!
It revolves around the story of the 2006 Hillmount High School class who gathered to celebrate their fifteenth reunion. Things go sideways when their famous classmate dies and they all become murder suspects. As Detective Danner investigates each guest, different reports of the events of that night surface.
Critics praised the show for its engaging storytelling and unexpected plot twists. While some of them admit that the series takes time to captivate audiences, it gets better with each episode and eventually becomes addicting. The winning combination of humor, mystery and crime seems to have worked wonders for the show. As the first season has ended, fans can’t wait to see if there’s more. So, let’s explore the possibility of a second round.
The Afterparty Season 2: Potential Release Date
‘The Afterparty’ season 1 was released on January 28, 2022, on Apple TV+, with the season ending on March 4, 2022. The inaugural edition of the series consisted of eight episodes of 31–48 minutes each.
As far as season two is concerned, you’ll love to learn what we know. On March 2, 2022, it was announced that the series will be continued into another season. The announcement came before the season 1 finale aired. This is not surprising given the positive response mystery dramas have received around the world.
Additionally, the show comes from executive producers Anthony King, Phil Lord, and Christopher Miller. In fact, this isn’t the first time Lord and Miller have given us a hit title. They have worked together on films such as ‘The Lego Movie,’ ’21 Jump Street,’ ’22 Jump Street,’ ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,’ and ‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.’ So, it can be said that this duo really knows how to work together.
According to reports, season 1 began filming in November 2020, which is a little over a year before it hits screens. Therefore, should the team start shooting the upcoming season in the summer of 2022, we can expect ‘The Afterparty’ season 2 to be released sometime in Q2 2023.
The Afterparty Season 2: Expected Cast
Tiffany Haddish played Detective Danner in season 1. The good news is that she has been confirmed for season 2. Besides her, season 1 includes Sam Richardson (Aniq), Zoë Chao (Zoë), Ike Barinholtz (Brett), Ben Schwartz (Yasper), Ilana Glazer (Chelsea), Jamie Demetriou (Walt) and Dave Franco (Xavier).
But we don’t know if any of them will be part of the second show as there is little room to carry the storyline forward with the same character set. However, we cannot rule out the possibility of the actors taking on new roles. It seems more likely that new cast members will form the lineup for the new season.
The Afterparty Season 2: Expected Plot
At the end of the first season, the truth is revealed. It is revealed that Yasper killed Xavier, with the root cause being jealousy and a sense of betrayal. They used to be in a band together, but Xavier eventually beat Yasper and became a star. When the former friend and celebrity killer confessed to his crimes, Aniq was shocked. However, things end on a positive note for Aniq when he and Zo finally get together.
Given that the first season left no questions unanswered, it will be interesting to see the route the show takes in the new season. Since the series is called ‘The Afterparty’, it’s possible that Danner gets involved in another party that goes wrong with a new set of people and new mysteries to solve.
