"The Afterparty" centers on a murder mystery at a high school reunion. Each of the eight episodes features a retelling of the same night told through a different character's perspective, each with its own unique visual style and film genre to match the teller's personality

We don't yet have a release window for when we can expect the second season of The Afterparty to be available to stream, unfortunately.
