When a star gets canceled due to sexual misconduct allegations, they are sometimes able to bounce back when the allegations are proven to be false. This appears to be the case for Tiffany Haddish, who found herself in some hot water due to a lawsuit that was filed this past August but resolved in September. Though at the time, Haddish stated that she lost everything in the wake of the lawsuit, she will be reprising her role as Detective Danner in the upcoming Season 2 of Apple TV+‘s The Afterparty.

The lawsuit in question was filed by “Jane Doe” who stated that in 2014, she was forced to perform inappropriate sexual acts for a comedy skit entitled “The Mind of a Pedophile.” Though this sounds bad, Tiffany Haddish’s lawyer stated that the lawsuit had no merit, and the case was dismissed with prejudice within a month. Jane Doe has since apologized for the suit, and it looks like that was enough for Haddish to be recruited to reprise her role for The Afterparty.

Though Tiffany Haddish said back in August that the lawsuit caused her projects to be canceled, she seems to have bounced back from the controversy. Not only will she be appearing in Season 2 of The Afterparty, but her filmography reveals that she is hard at work on a number of new projects. Landscape with Invisible Hand saw a January 23 release, Haunted Mansion is in the post-production phases, and is slated for a late July release, and Back on the Strip has wrapped production but currently does not have a release date.

Aside from her upcoming silver-screen roles, Tiffany Haddish will be seen on the series premiere of The Afterparty, which has a release date of July 12, 2023. For those of you who aren’t up to speed on the popular Apple TV+ series, think of it as a murder mystery comedy like Clue, or the comedy-horror film Ready or Not (starring Samara Weaving). Season 1 of the series followed the “switch in perspective” model, in which each episode followed a different character through their version of events.

This form of storytelling proved to be quite successful in shows like ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder (starring Viola Davis), and Season 2 of The Afterparty will continue in a similar fashion. The series will follow Tiffany Haddish’s Detective Danner in her investigation to solve a murder mystery at a wedding, with a whole new lineup of suspects with questionable motives. Written and directed by Christopher Miller, we can only expect more of the same comedic miscommunications but in an entirely new setting that will keep us guessing who committed the murder.

Alongside Tiffany Haddish, Season 2 of The Afterparty will see the return of Sam Richardson, and Zoe Chao, as well as new cast members, including John Cho, from the Harold & Kumar franchise, and Ken Jeong from The Hangover.

Tiffany Haddish has surely bounced back from her legal issues last year, and with the upcoming season premiere of The Afterparty, we’re hoping to see one heck of a wedding that will keep us at the edge of our seats while laughing hysterically as the murder plot unfolds.
