The new cast of “The Afterparty” is stacked. Aside from Haddish, Richardson, and Chao, there’s a whole new group of potential murderers. Among them: “Weeds” star Elizabeth Perkins, “Silicon Valley” funnyman Zach Woods, “Black Bird” award-winner Paul Walter Hauser, “Hacks” breakout Poppy Liu, “Pen15” star and co-creator Anna Konkle, comedian Jack Whitehall, “The Pillow Book” star Vivian Wu, “Star Trek” star John Cho, and “Community” alum Ken Jeong.
Miller will be sharing showrunner duties for the second season with Anthony King, while he, King, and Lord executive produce. Aubrey Lee is also on board as a producer. Since the series is an anthology, most of the season one cast isn’t expected to return, though you’d think if anyone does, Ike Barinholtz’s Brett might be the most likely of the bunch. After all, Aniq is now dating his ex-wife, Zoe, and they both really love their adorable daughter Maggie (Everly Carganilla).
