Why Women Kill is a dark comedy-drama television series created by Marc Cherry and the first season premiered on August 15, 2019. The thing that separates this show from many others is that Why Women Kill is set in multiple time periods, ranging from the 1960s to the 2010s.
The series was well-received by both, the fans, as well as the critics and, is currently rated 67% on Rotten Tomatoes. Here is all that we know so far about the series and the upcoming season.
What is this series all about?
To put it in simple words, we follow events leading to deaths caused by women. Yes! you heard it right, this show is all about women and murders. We follow different women, from different decades (but related to each other), who deal with infidelity, betrayals, and many ups and downs in their relationships. This first season of the series was aired on CBS All Access, whereas Paramount+ premiered the second one.
How Many Season does Why Women Kill have?
2 seasons of this Comedy-drama have been released so far. The first season premiered on August 15, 2019, consisting of 10 episodes, and the series was renewed for the second season just before the last episode aired. The first season revolves around three women and how they deal with their partners cheating on them and how it affects their lives. The first season can be best described by 4 words, Cheating Men Must Die. Paramount+ aired the second on June 3, 2021, also with 10 episodes. The second season focuses on Allison Tolman and Lana, as viewers go through their struggles in life and relationship.
Why Women Kill Season 3!
Why Women Kill season 2 finished yesterday on Paramount+ and each episode had a running time of 45 minutes. But unlike the second season, which was renewed even before the 1st season was completed, the 3rd season has not been confirmed yet. As far as the release date is concerned, the producers have not released any statements and we are not sure whether or not it will return for another installment.
Since there is no source material for the show, we are not sure there are any storylines left, it is also possible that Paramount has some other plans for the series and we might not get the new season anytime soon.
As the renewal of any series usually depend on how the show was received by fans and its performance on a streaming platform. Moreover, it’s not easy for the writers to come up with a new plot, characters as this process needs time. There are many processes and details that are required before any series is given the thumbs up.
We can only hope for a formal announcement by the producers and the only way to push this release forward is that fans need to support the series more. There is no need to panic as the second season just finished and it takes 16-18 months to complete production and we may hear from Paramount by Fall 2021 and the 3rd season can premiere in 2022.
