‘The Afterparty’ Renewed For Second Season, Tiffany Haddish to Return
The Afterparty is set to continue on Apple TV+ as the streamer has picked up the comedic murder mystery for a second season, with Tiffany Haddish reprising her role as Detective Danner.
Created by The Lego Movie duo Chris Miller and Phil Lord, the series takes place at a high school reunion afterparty, with each episode presented from a different character’s perspective. Each episode also has its own unique genre; for example, Episode 1 is a romantic-comedy, Episode 3 is presented as a musical, and Episode 6 takes the form of a deranged animation.
In addition to Haddish, the Season 1 cast includes Sam Richardson as Aniq, Zoë Chao as Zoë, Ike Barinholtz as Brett, Ben Schwartz as Yasper, Ilana Glazer as Chelsea, Jamie Demetriou as Walt, and Dave Franco as Xavier. It also features John Early in a recurring role as Danner’s partner, Detective Culp.
The series premiered on January 28, 2022, and is set to conclude on Friday, March 4. Miller serves as director and showrunner, and also executive produces alongside Lord. TriStar TV and Sony Pictures Television produce the series for Apple as part of Lord and Miller’s five-year overall television deal.
Haddish has had a busy schedule in recent years, having starred in several television series and movies. In 2021, she appeared in the films On the Count of Three, Bad Trip, Here Today, and The Card Counter, as well as hosting the TBS series Friday Night Vibes. She also voices the character of Kitty in the Tubi animated series The Freak Brothers and Aisha in the Hulu animated sitcom Solar Opposites.
Lord and Miller have written and directed several popular movies over the past few years, including The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street, and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. They also co-created the animated series Clone High and its upcoming HBO Max revival.
