With an ambitious concept that travels through decades, a star-studded cast, and a punchy title, it's no surprise why fans have become enthralled with the dramedy Why Women Kill

The first season centers around three women, who live in different decades, as they each deal with infidelities in their respective marriages. Beth Ann Stanton (Ginnifer Goodwin) is enjoying being the perfect '60s housewife when she finds out that her husband, Rob (Sam Jaeger) has moved on with a younger woman.

Meanwhile, in the '80s, Simone Grove (Lucy Liu) discovers that her third husband, Karl Grove (Jack Davenport), is using her as a beard to cover his homosexuality. 

The third central wife in the series lives in modern times. Taylor Harding (Kirby Howell-Baptiste) has a progressive open relationship with her spouse, Eli Cohen (Reid Scott), but their marriage is tested when they both fall in love with the same woman, Jade (Alexandra Daddario).

When is 'Why Women Kill' returning for Season 2?

If you were one of the viewers who was blown away by the first season of Why Women Kill, then you were likely pleased to learn that the show would be returning for a second season.

However, Season 2 will feature an entirely new cast and plot.

Like Season 1, the plot will center around several characters who share more commanlities than they realize. Unlike Season 1, which featured three different decades, all of the storylines in Season 2 will take place in 1949. 

The Season 2 plot also centers around women who already know one another. 

The main female characters are bonded through their fixations on fitting in, being beautiful, and by presenting superficial facades to the world.

Alma (Allison Tolman) is a housewife whose main mission in life is to help her daughter, Dee (B.K. Cannon), get married. She joins a local garden club to help network for her beloved daughter. But, her plans are thwarted when she learns that her husband, Bertram (Nick Frost), has a secret. 

Once Upon a Time alum Lana Parrilla will play Rita, the wife of an elderly man whom she hopes will die soon. 

While awaiting his demise, she engages in an extramarital affair with a much younger man, Scooter (Matthew Daddario). Rita's unmarried stepdaughter, Catherine (Veronica Falcón) despises Rita and her plans.

Another confirmed character is Vern (Jordane Christie), a private investigator hired to look into Scooter's background.

A release date for Season 2 has not been shared yet, but it will likely debut some time in 2021.
