THE AFTERPARTY SEASON 2 STORYLINE
Before we delve into what's in store for season 2, let's take a little look at season 1.
The Afterparty has a very unique premise. At a high school reunion afterparty, one of the guests is murdered. Tiffany Haddish is Detective Danner, who must solve the case that night, and in her sights are a number of suspects.
Each interview retells the night's events but in a different genre of movie-making. So one is told as a romantic comedy, another as an action movie, another in animation, etc…
Danner must then look for inconsistencies and identify the culprit. It's clever and funny and makes a change from the usual run-of-the-mill whodunnits.
So what can we expect in season 2? A lot of the cast is back to reprise their roles, but this time the murder is committed at a wedding.
When the groom is murdered 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.
Hearing each suspect’s retelling of the weekend, she must figure out who killed the groom and why.
