There is no doubt in the fact that one of the most popular original offerings on CBS All-Access in 2019 has been Why Women Kill. The series did launch on the service in August 2019 and immediately managed to attract eyeballs with its interesting storyline. The streaming service was then compelled to renew the series for yet another season in October 2019 and this was even before the last few episodes could make it to the screens. The series has now been rebranded as Paramount+ though.
The first season of the series had been created by Desperate Housewives and Popular’s creator Marc Cherry who focused the theme of the story on three different women who lived in three different periods of time. The time periods mentioned in the show were 1963, 1984, and 2019. The one common thing between them was that all of them lived in the same mansion which had been located in Pasadena, California, and all of them were driven to eventually become murderers.
The three central figures in the narrative of the very first season had Ginnifer Goodwin (Beth Ann Stanton of 1963), Lucy Liu (Simone Grove of 1984), and Kirby Howell-Baptiste (Taylor Harding of 2019). Each character has this mission of killing a person who has been close to them and later towards the end, that one bond that may have bound them together all along was revealed.
With all the information we have regarding the prequel, it is needless to say that the sequel is also understood to follow the same lines. The production of the show could have begun long ago but the pandemic spoiled it for the team. However, get really to witness the thriller now on June 3, 2021, only on Paramount.
