The Season 1 Plot:

Why Women Kill examines how the roles of women have changed over the decades, but how their reaction to betrayal… has not. The first season of Why Women Kill details the lives of three women living in three different decades: a housewife in the ‘60s, a socialite in the ‘80s and a lawyer in 2019, each dealing with infidelity in their marriages. Season two will follow a new set of characters dealing with acts of betrayal.”
