The murder mystery genre is making comeback as we’ve seen remakes of Agatha Christie novels on the big screen and Only Murders in the Building played well with audiences. If you like those, you’ll have a great time with The Afterparty which is now streaming on AppleTV+. Going to a high school reunion brings out all sorts of mixed reactions. The 2006 class is coming together for their 15th anniversary but what they don’t realize is that the afterparty will turn deadly. Dave Franco plays Xavier who has become a mega pop star, actor, influencer. He invites everyone over to his swanky estate for an afterparty. The first episode opens with his body at the bottom of the cliff below his estate. Tiffany Haddish is hot on the case as the lead detective and Xavier’s classmates are questioned one by one as each episode looks back at the events of the night from a different character’s perspective.
