Party’s over. Apple TV+ has decided to cancel The Afterparty after two seasons.
Created and executive produced by Chris Miller, the series premiered in Jan. 2022. Each episode embraced a different cinematic style and was told from the point of view of a different character.
TV Line was the first outlet to report the news of the show’s cancellation, which comes shortly after the conclusion of the murder mystery’s second season.
Season 2, which wrapped up on Sept. 6, followed the aftermath of a disrupted wedding after the groom was found murdered.
Detective Danner, played by Tiffany Haddish, returned to assist Aniq and Zoë, played by Sam Richardson and Zoë Chao, in solving the mystery of his death.
The sophomore season cast also included John Cho, Paul Walter Hauser, Ken Jeong, Anna Konkle, Poppy Liu, Elizabeth Perkins, Jack Whitehall, Zach Woods, and Vivian Wu, along with a variety of guest stars like Keke Palmer, Elijah Wood, and Jaleel White, and Martin Mull.
Season two of the series was led by showrunners Anthony King and Chris Miller. Phil Lord was also on board as an executive producer, with Michael Cedar, Aubrey Lee, and Bridger Winegar serving as producers on the series.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony Pictures Television, the production company behind the show, is now actively seeking a new platform for the series.
THR also reports that specific viewership data for the popular Apple TV+ series remained undisclosed. The Afterparty did not, however, rank among the top 10 original streaming shows in Nielson’s rankings throughout its run.
