Detective Danner, played by Tiffany Haddish, is back on the case! Apple TV+ today announced an early season two renewal for The Afterparty series. The hit murder-mystery comedy series comes from Academy Award, BAFTA, and Golden Globe Award winners Chris Miller and Phil Lord, TriStar TV, and Sony Pictures Television.
The news arrives ahead of the eagerly anticipated season one finale, which will premiere globally this Friday, March 4, on Apple TV+.
Created and directed by Miller, The Afterparty series is a genre-defying series centered on a murder mystery at a high school reunion.
Each episode explores a different character’s account of the fateful evening in question, all through the lens of popular film genres and unique visuals to match the storyteller’s perspective.
In this Friday’s season finale episode, Maggie, an unexpected witness, will emerge to help Detective Danner piece together the true story behind Xavier’s demise.
In addition to directing, Miller serves as showrunner and executive producer alongside Lord through the pair’s production banner, Lord Miller. Tony and Emmy-nominated writer, producer, and performer Anthony King (Search Party, Dead to Me) also executive produces the series.
Lord Miller’s SVP of Television Aubrey Lee is a producer on the series, which is produced for Apple by TriStar TV and Sony Pictures Television as part of Lord and Miller’s expansive five-year overall television deal.
The eight-episode first season launched globally on Friday, January 28, 2022, on Apple TV+ with three episodes, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday.
The Afterparty is part of a slate of comedy series on Apple TV+, including Emmy Award-winning Ted Lasso, the Peabody Award-winning Dickinson, Mythic Quest, the Emmy Award-nominated Central Park, and recently-added Acapulco and The Shrink Next Door.
Apple TV+ is available to watch across all your favorite screens.
