The second season of The Afterparty picks up two years after the first season’s events. Aniq, Zoe, and Detective Danner are back to investigate another murder, this time at the wedding of Zoe’s sister, Grace.
The groom, Edgar, is found dead in his hotel room the morning after the wedding. Detective Danner suspects that one of the guests is the killer, and she sets out to interview them all.
Each episode of the second season is told from the perspective of a different guest at the wedding, and each episode is presented in a distinct cinematic style. The styles include a Bollywood musical, a noir thriller, and a ’90s rom-com.
The second season also features several celebrity cameos, including John Cho, John Early, and Stephanie Hsu.
