Star-studded murder-mystery comedy series The Afterparty has just received January 28th, 2022 as its premiere date. The eight-episode first season will launch with three episodes on Apple TV+, followed by a new episode every Friday.
Set at a high school reunion afterparty, the night turns sour when one alum dies gruesomely. Starring an incredible array of comedic talents including Tiffany Haddish, Sam Richardson, Illana Glazer, Zoe Chao, Ben Schwartz, Dave Franco, Ike Barinholtz, and more, The Afterparty comes from Academy Award, BAFTA and Golden Globe Award winners Chris Miller and Phil Lord (The Lego Movie, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse, 21 Jump Street). Talk about an all-star line up!
Each episode will retell the same fateful night from a different character's perspective, each "with its own unique visual format and film genre to match the teller's personality" (as per Apple's logline) in what sounds like a fun and unique exercise in genre-blending.
