Can anyone be a murderer? Well, the writers behind Apple TV's new comedy The Afterparty seem to think so, as they teased the series debut with a thrilling trailer. Here's what you can expect.

When a night of partying and nostalgia ends with a gruesome death, 8 former classmates set out to uncover the truth by joining in a hilarious round of whodunnit. From the producers behind 21 Jump Street, Into the Spider-Verse, and The Lego Movie, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, The Afterparty presents a unique retelling of one crazy night's events as told from a handful of mixed perspectives and genres. “By giving each episode its own unique style of storytelling, we were able to make what feels like eight distinctly different but interconnected films that highlight how everyone’s personal perspective and biases shape how they see the world,” admitted Lord and Miller.

Stars of the upcoming series include some comedic favorites like Tiffany Haddish, Ike Barinholtz, Dave Franco, Ben Shwartz and Illana Glazer. Set to debut in January of 2022, the show is anticipated to make a splash with Apple viewers as one of the platforms monthly new releases. So who will you be watching?
