Season 1 stars Tiffany Haddish as Detective Danner, Sam Richardson as Aniq, and Zoë Chao as Zoë are set to return in Season 2 as Danner tires to help Aniq and Zoë solve a mystery where every guest at the wedding is a suspect. From business partners to family members, each guest will need to recount their version of events, once again with their own unique perspective and visual style. Cast members that will be joining Season 2 include Elizabeth Perkins, Zach Woods, Paul Walter Hauser, Poppy Liu, Anna Konkle, Jack Whitehall, Vivian Wu, John Cho, and Ken Jeong.

Season 2 of The Afterparty is co-showrun by Miller as well as Tony and Emmy-nominated writer, producer, and performer Anthony King. The duo also serves as executive producers along with Academy Award winner Phil Lord, with Miller and Lord producing via the pair’s production banner, Lord Miller Productions.
