  • Why Women Kill

    I've just started to re-watch the show and searched for a thread to praise it but found none - so here it is!

    Why Women Kill is an American dark comedy-drama web television series created by Marc Cherry for CBS All Access. Set in multiple time periods, the series depicts the events leading to a death that occurs after the respective husbands of three married women commit adultery. It premiered on August 15, 2019, and its first season consisted of 10 episodes. Shortly before the first season concluded, the series was renewed for a second season.



    Why Women Kill follows three women from different decades who are connected through having all lived in the same Pasadena mansion and experiencing infidelity in their marriages. Beth Ann Stanton (played by Ginnifer Goodwin) remains content as a housewife in 1963 until she learns of her husband's unfaithfulness, socialite Simone Grove (played by Lucy Liu) discovers her third husband's homosexuality and begins her own affair with a younger man in 1984, and although in an open marriage in 2019, attorney Taylor Harding (played by Kirby Howell-Baptiste) finds her relationship tested when she and her husband become attracted to the same woman. The infidelity in each marriage sets off a chain of events that ends with a woman taking the life of another person.

    It's such a great show, I loved all three timelines equally. Simone, Beth Ann, her neighbour Sheila and Eli are my favourite characters.

      This show is something else.
      Absolutely loved it.

      The merging of the three eras during the last episode was brilliant.

        I finished re-watching the show and loved it even more than the first time. I think that both JSparksFan and Spartan would love it as well (if they haven't already watched it).

              You know, I think it's quite similar to "Desperate Housewives"
              So, when I started to watch this one I didn't pin my hopes on that.

              But I was attratcted to this movie!
              Every character is different and the end of the film.. it was fantastic! How all times meet in one house, it was the most breath-taking moment during all film for me!

                  This was great for me. Loved Lucy Liu's story the most. The "modern day" story was the least good one for me, but they all tied well at the end.

                  I hope we get another batch of stories.

                      Lucy Liu is the clear highlight in this. Ginnifer Goodwin is good, but I don’t like the modern day woman very much, love her partner though (Reid Scott was great on Veep too).

                        The modern day woman is also my least favourite of the three. Eli on the other hand is adorable.

                            Finished this tonight ... at last. Adored the whole thing, I loved seeing the characters evolve and the storylines go off on the different tangents. Simone could’ve easily been a one-dimensional caricature but the last few episodes made me really care for her, and Lucy Liu is flawless.

                            I was really happy with the ending for all the characters. The tango scene in the last episode where all three eras merged into one was beautiful. Surprised the show didn’t get more recognition.

                              ‘Why Women Kill’ Adds Lana Parrilla, B.K. Cannon, Jordane Christie, Matthew Daddario & Veronica Falcón For Season 2


                              CBS All Access is rounding out the cast for Season 2 of its original anthology series Why Women Kill. Lana Parrilla (The Tax Collector), B.K. Cannon (Sin City Saints) Jordane Christie (The Haunting of Hill House), Matthew Daddario (Shadowhunters) and Veronica Falcón (Queen of the South) join previously announced Allison Tolman and Nick Frost in the series that hails from Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry, Imagine Television Studios and CBS Studios.

                              This season of the dark comedy features a new ensemble cast and storylines set in 1949 that will explore what it means to be beautiful, the hidden truth behind the facades people present to the world, the effects of being ignored and overlooked by society, and finally, the lengths one woman will go in order to finally belong.

                              Parrilla will play Rita, the sardonic wife to the wealthy and evil Carlo Castillo. As she waits for her elderly husband to die, Rita runs the garden club with an iron fist and spends much of her time engaging in an affair with a younger lover.

                              Cannon will portray Dee, Alma’s wry and brassy daughter who works as a waitress in a local diner. Though self-deprecating, Dee can be vulnerable under her emotional armor and finds her illicit affair with a secret lover to be both exciting and humiliating.

                              Christie is Vern, a tough, rugged private detective. Vern is intrigued and suspicious when he’s hired to investigate Rita’s younger lover, whom she suspects is cheating on her.

                              Daddario will play Scooter, Rita’s gorgeous, sexy and not-so-bright lover. A charming would-be actor, Scooter is well kept by Rita but pursues a secret relationship elsewhere.

                              Falcón will play Catherine, Carlo Castillo’s spinster daughter. Prim and proper, Catherine detests her father’s gorgeous wife, Rita, and returns to town after a mysterious accident, seeking a way to destroy her.

                              Cherry serves as executive producer alongside Imagine’s Brian Grazer and Samie Kim Falvey; Acme Productions’ Michael Hanel and Mindy Schultheis; Marc Webb and Francie Calfo. The series is produced by Imagine Television Studios and CBS Studios.

                              Parrilla can be seen in David Ayer’s indie thriller The Tax Collector and is also known for starring on Once Upon a Time in the roles of Regina Mills and the Evil Queen. Parrilla’s other previous credits include Prior Boomtown, Windfall, Swingtown, Miami Medical, as well as Spin City and 24.
