I got over being under you
Are you into being under me?
You were out of my league but now you’re
Into my heart
The Afterparty, a murder mystery comedy TV show from the United States, made its Apple TV debut on January 28, 2022. It was created by Christopher Miller. The show’s The After Party Season 2, planned to begin on April 28, 2023, was renewed for a first season in March 2022.
When Apple released the first image of The Afterparty season 2 with Aniq holding a doll, it revealed(opens in new tab) a release date of Friday, April 28, 2023.
The Afterparty Season 2’s trailer is out and it seems very interesting; you can check the trailer from the link below.

Danner will take on a fresh case at the wedding’s afterparty in season 2 of The Afterparty. Also, given that Aniq and Zoe are involved, they might get married! Considering that they dated in the season 1 finale.
According to Apple’s official description, “In season two, after the husband is killed, a wedding is wrecked since every guest is a suspect. Detective Danner (Haddish) is back to assist Aniq (Richardson) and Zo (Chao) in solving the crime by questioning family members, star-crossed lovers, and business colleagues as well as listening to each suspect’s account of the weekend from their particular point of view and visual storytelling.”
The titular daughter of Zoe and Brett, who appeared in the finale’s “Maggie,” was an unexpected witness. The young child described her evening to Danner, describing how she had drawn a cat face on Aniq and seen Jennifer #2 wet herself (her water broke, so she went to the hospital).
For Danner, who claims to know who the murderer is, Maggie’s testimony adds some missing details. It’s Walt, Brett, or Aniq. But Walt was planning his streaking escapade in the restroom. Aniq comes forward to say that he saw Brett in the driveway just before the murder. Aniq is prepared to face the consequences when he discovers that the closet was closed in every version of the tale.
There had been something there, and it was Yasper! He was miffed that Xavier was well-known and that he had not given his blessing to Yasper’s music. Thus, he exacts revenge by murdering Xavier, stealing the music, and then releasing it as a posthumous duet.
As Yasper cites their texts as evidence of their friendship, Danner points out that the A/V man could have easily obtained the password of the deceased pop singer. Aniq then discovers that Yasper might have been able to remove the security footage using Xavier’s phone. When Yasper’s phone is discovered in his pocket, he is caught.
Danner brags to Detective Germain, her archenemy, and her commander about her victory. In the meantime, Aniq and Zoe leave for breakfast. She enquires if he will ever act as she pulls over to the side of the road. Walt, who humbly requests a ride home, rudely interrupts their kiss.
This afterparty has ended now that the case is over and Yasper appears to be going to jail. Yet as wedding bells transform into police sirens, Danner faces yet another one.
The number of “neutral” reviews for this show caught me off, guard. I only relied on a few suggestions and had no expectations going into the Afterparty. I can honestly say I was quite impressed after watching the entire series! This is not meant to be a funny, out-loud comedy, as some folks appeared to be anticipating. Instead, it takes a lighthearted and frequently situationally hilarious approach to a murder investigation.
Because of that, I was occasionally reminded of the film Knives Out. I adored how each episode essentially offered the viewpoint of a different character regarding what transpired throughout the night. I got the impression that I was solving puzzles and spotting contradictions in some of their stories. I admit that there were a few parts where the humor seemed a little forced, but the actors did a good job of making the jokes work. The After Party is unquestionably something I advise.

The Afterparty’s unfathomable charm always worked in its favor, especially when it came to keeping the mystery alive. Conversations about the genre-defying premise and all-star cast were sparked when the first three episodes, including Yasper’s, debuted all at once. We oohed and aahed over Yasper’s episode’s songs and accepted the more bizarre elements of his story as part of living in a musical. Most blatantly, he was leading us astray, yet we eagerly obeyed.
