Sony Pictures Television, which produces the series, will look to find another home for The Afterparty. The show tells a self-contained story with each season.
Created by Chris Miller, who executive produces along with his producing partner Phil Lord, The Afterparty took on a different genre in each episode, depending on which character’s point of view was front and center. Zoë Chao, Sam Richardson and Tiffany Haddish reprised their season one roles in the second installment, which was set at a wedding that’s ruined when the groom turns up dead. The season two cast also features John Cho, Paul Walter Hauser, Ken Jeong, Anna Konkle, Poppy Liu, Elizabeth Perkins, Jack Whitehall, Zach Woods and Vivian Wu.
As with most streaming series, viewing data for The Afterparty isn’t public. The show didn’t crack the top 10 original streaming series in Nielsen’s rankings during its run.
Anthony King and Miller served as co-showrunners for season two and executive produce with Lord, via the duo’s Lord Miller banner. Michael Cedar, Aubrey Lee (senior vp television at Lord Miller) and Bridger Winegar are producers.
