Apple TV+'s hit whodunit, The Afterparty, is returning for a second season.

In season one, a murder occurs at a high school reunion afterparty, and each episode was told through the perspective of the various characters. "Audiences are savvy these days," creator Christopher Miller told Town & Country. "They’re more sophisticated than in the time of the original Murder on the Orient Express, and having to stay one step ahead of them is a real trick."

Season two will focus on a different afterparty, and almost an entirely new cast. Here's everything we know so far:

Season two will take place at a wedding, where a groom is murdered.

Plot details are largely kept under wraps for now, but we know The Afterparty season two will take place at a wedding where every guest is a suspect.

Per Apple, "Detective Danner (Haddish) returns to help Aniq (Richardson) and Zoë (Chao) solve whodunnit by questioning family members, star-crossed lovers and business partners, and hearing each suspect’s retelling of the weekend, each with their own unique perspective and visual style."

Tiffany Haddish, Sam Richardson, and Zoë Chao are the only returning cast members.

Tiffany Haddish's Detective Danner returns to solve the crime, and Sam Richardson and Zoë Chao's Aniq and Zoe will aide in figuring out the murderer.

"I grew up reading Nancy Drew books and then Agatha Christie books, and movies like Arsenic and Old Lace, Gosford Park, or Scream are just my favorite," Chao told T&C around season one.

Creating a murder mystery show like The Afterparty, Chao said, "takes such precision to keep everything straight, it was like making eight movies from eight different perspectives, so to try to keep track of where we were inside of each story could be a challenge. There would be days when we were inside of three different genres, looking at the same scene three different ways, and it was easy to get lost. But it was fun! It was like doing a crossword puzzle nonstop."

Elizabeth Perkins, Zach Woods, Paul Walter Hauser, Poppy Liu, Anna Konkle, Jack Whitehall, Vivian Wu, John Cho, and Ken Jeong join the cast as the new group of party guests.

The Afterparty premieres on April 28.

The first two episodes will drop on Apple TV+ on April 28, and then the subsequent eight episodes will premiere weekly on Fridays. The finale will air June 23, 2023.
