The show comes from creator Marc Cherry, and season two of “Why Women Kill” features a new ensemble cast and storylines set in 1949.

The second season stars Allison Tolman, Lana Parilla, B.K. Cannon, Jordane Christie, Matthew Daddario, Veronica Falcón, and Nick Frost.
The first season followed a housewife in the ’60s, a socialite in the ’80s, and a lawyer in 2019. The cast included including Lucy Liu, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Kirby Howell-Baptiste, as well as Jack Davenport, Sam Jaeger, Reid Scott, Alexandra Daddario, Sadie Calvano, Leo Howard, Alicia Coppola, and Katie Finneran.
The series is produced by Imagine Television Studios and CBS Studios.
