There's a new murder-mystery over on Apple TV Plus, so here's everything we know so far about The Afterparty season 2 cast and the plot of the new crime.

The Afterparty season 2 release date: Detective Danner

When is The Afterparty season 2 release date? If you love a good murder mystery, chances are that, like us, you are a big fan of the Apple TV Plus series The Afterparty. It’s a millennial whodunnit romp for the ages devised by Christopher Miller, one half of perhaps the buzziest duo in Hollywood along with Phil Lord.

In the first season of The Afterparty, a mysterious death at a high school reunion led to laughs, plenty of drama and even some redemption throughout the case, and now fans are dying to know what Detective Danner is up to next. Thankfully, Apple TV Plus renewed one of its best TV series and we’re now getting yet another crime to sink our teeth into, as well as more colorful genre homages.

But who is the new victim? And where will Danner be called to next? From The Afterparty season 2 release date, to The Afterparty cast and more, here are all the clues we here at The Digital Fix have uncovered during our investigation into one of the best comedy series around.
