Now, the latest series to premiere on Apple is The Afterparty, which is quickly garnering plenty of talk due to its various subgenres. What category does it fit under? Is it a murder mystery? A comedy? Let's find out!
Is 'The Afterparty' a comedy?
At its core, The Afterparty is without a doubt a comedy series mixed in with a whodunnit storyline. Many argue it's like "Agatha Christie meets comedy," which seems accurate, as creator Chris Miller told Rotten Tomatoes that he read plenty of her novels growing up.
However, it's good to note that The Afterparty does a bit of genre-bending, meaning it incorporates several other genres in the overall story and in this case, each episode. Yes, rather than sticking to the main genres, every episode is stylized as a totally different genre since each person is recounting the high school reunion afterparty in their own words.
What other genres pop up in 'The Afterparty'?
Since each episode of The Afterparty follows a different genre, fans of the series will see plenty of other versions of the eerie night, including animation.
"Chris Miller and Phil Lord are the kings of animation, so it felt really special that I got to explore that with them," Zoë Chao told Rotten Tomatoes. We don't know about you, but we can't wait to see the animated episode!
The first three episodes of The Afterparty are now available to stream on Apple TV Plus, with new episodes dropping on Fridays.
