Is there no end to the talents of Lord and Miller? After the soaring success of Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse, they’re on smaller screens this week, returning to the world of the whodunnit with the second season of the genre hopping The Afterparty.

After cracking a high school reunion murder in season one, fast-talking Detective Danner (Tiffany Haddish) is back to solve another mystery, this time a strange death at a wedding. It’s down to her, with some help from Aniq (Sam Richardson) who she met on the first case, to weed out the killer from all the guests. Could it be Jack Whitehall’s smooth talking best man? The groom’s haughty mother, Isabel, played by Elizabeth Perkins? Or does the bride’s father (Ken Jeung) know more than he’s letting on?

All will be revealed – eventually – in the new series which starts on Apple TV+ this week. And our interviews with Lord and Miller and members of the cast – Zach Woods, Jack Whitehall, Paul Walter Hauser, Poppy Liu, Vivian Wu, Elizabeth Perkins, Anna Konkle, John Cho and Ken Jeung – are eye-openers as well. They all choose their favourite movie genre, while John Cho looks forward to more singing and Paul Walter Hauser talks about going back to his comedy roots.
