Season 2 of 'The Afterparty': John Cho Boards Murder Mystery as Series Regular

Season 2 of 'The Afterparty': John Cho Boards Murder Mystery as Series Regular ...

Every show (and movie) might involve some John Cho, but right now, the Afterpartys are on course. Deadline reports that Cho has participated in the second season of Apple TV+''s murder-mystery comedy, which has just begun production.

The actor joins new cast members including Elizabeth Perkins, Zach Woods, Paul Walter Hauser, Poppy Liu, Anna Konkle, Jack Whitehall, Ken Jeong, and Vivian Wu. Tiffany Haddish, Sam Richardson, and Zoe Chao are all returning artists.

The first season of the series, led by Chris Miller and Phil Lord, although Miller served as solo director and creator, was a genre-blending romp that focused on the murder of a pop star. Every episode adopted the cinematic vocabulary of a particular genre, from musical, action, and film noiras Haddishs detective investigate the case.

Ike Barinhotlz, Ben Schwartz, Ilana Glazer, and Dave Franco appeared in the first season. In addition to Haddish, Richardson and Chao, the show was praised for its inventiveness, its genre-jumping style, and its depiction of millennial disillusionment. The Afterparty says that nothing is too difficult for Lord and Miller to accomplish in the past one of the best television releases of 2022.

Season 2 will revolve around a murder at a wedding. Richardson and Chao will take over as the series progresses, while Haddish returns as Detective Danner. At the end of the first season, Richardson and Chaos''s characters, Aniq and Zoe, became involved in a romantic relationship.

Cho, who will play a character named Ulysses on The Afterparty, is perhaps best known for the Harold and Kumar movies. He also appeared as Sulu in the Star Trek reboot movies, and was last seen in the now-canceled live-action Cowboy Bebop adaptation on Netflix.

Apple has had a remarkable year after the streamer released a slew of popular hits such as Severance and Pachinko, making history by becoming the first streaming service to have distributed a Best Picture Oscar winner.

Miller and Anthony King will co-show Season 2 of The Afterparty. Miller and Lord also executive produce through their Lord Miller Productions banner.

Season 2 of The Afterparty is currently no release date.
