The Afterparty is a murder mystery comedy streaming television series which originates from the United States of America. This series has been created by Christopher Miller. It first premiered on Apple TV+ on 28 January 2022. The creator of the series Miller got the idea of creating this series from ‘The Afterparty’ which was released in the early 2010s.
This is because he wanted to create a murder mystery that would show the different perspectives of the murder from the witnesses. He also took inspiration from his love of the murder-mystery genre and Akira Kurosawa’s Rashomon. The setting of the high school reunion was added to the series after Miller himself attended a high school reunion. He thought it would be a unique setting for such a concept. Apple TV+ announced on 24 June 2020 for the production of an eight-episode straight-to-series order, now titled The Afterparty.

The Afterparty Season 1 Episode 8 Story
The story of the series is set in the environment of a high school reunion. But suddenly everyone present at the part becomes a suspect. This is because death occurs at the event. The detectives arrive at the scene and start to do their work. They do so by interviewing everyone present at the party. One by one, as the interview occurs; different stories of the incident that happened at the party arise. The detective tries to uncover the potential motive behind the death and uncovers a shocking truth. Each episode shows a different character’s perspective of what had happened that night.
According to Critic Olivia Rutigliano, this series is an example of “the millennial whodunnit,” which is a new subgenre of murder mystery in which the investigation serves as a vehicle for characters to find second chances and personal fulfillment. It also serves as a departure from a boring or oppressive daily lifestyle (the feeling that their life has become a new genre itself).
