“Paramount+ has made the difficult decision not to move forward with Season 3 of Why Women Kill,” a spokesperson told the outlet. “We would like to thank our partners at CBS Studios and Imagine Television Studios, the amazing creator and showrunner Marc Cherry and the incredible writers, cast and crew for two memorable seasons.”

The news comes after Paramount+ announced its plans to renew the series for a third season in December 2021. Why Women Kill launched in 2019, with season 2 premiering in June of 2021.

Season 1 followed three women who lived in the same Pasadena mansion in 1963, 1984 and 2019, all of whom struggled with infidelity in their marriages. The cast included Ginnifer Goodwin, Lucy Liu, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, and Alexandra Daddario.

Season 2 took place in 1949 and starred Allison Tolman, Lana Parrilla, B.K. Cannon, Jordane Christie, Matthew Daddario, Veronica Falcón and Nick Frost.

The series comes from Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry, who also acted as an executive producer and showrunner.
