1. What is The Afterparty season 2 about?

While season one took place at a high school reunion party, season two’s big mystery will unravel at a wedding ceremony, where the groom is found dead. Naturally, everyone in attendance—from business partners to family members—is a suspect, so Detective Danner has her work cut out for her. 

Like season one, each episode will focus on a different suspect as they share their version of events through unique perspectives (and new film genres). Executive producer Chris Miller told Variety, “There will be…a whole new murder. Different shenanigans. Different film styles. We do have a dog in it—that’s a spoiler, but there is a dog.” Interesting…
