Ali Why Women Kill Comments Off on Why Women Kill Renewed for Season 2, to Focus on New Characters

TV Line has shared that Why Women Kill has been renewed for a new season … but with the focus on new characters … what does this mean for the Beth Ann, Simone, and Taylor?

CBS All Access will continue to explore Why Women Kill — albeit with a different set of characters.

Marc Cherry’s anthological dramedy has been picked up for Season 2 less than 24 hours ahead of its Season 1 finale, which is set to stream on Thursday. The second season of episodes will “follow a new set of characters dealing with acts of betrayal,” according the official release.

Season 1 of Why Women Kill follows the lives of three women living in three different decades: a housewife in the ’60s (played by Once Upon a Time‘s Ginnifer Goodwin), a socialite in the ’80s (Elementary‘s Lucy Liu) and a lawyer in 2019 (The Good Place‘s Kirby Howell-Baptiste), each dealing with infidelity in their marriages. Sam Jaeger (Parenthood), Jack Davenport (Smash) and Reid Scott (Veep) play their respective husbands.

“Why Women Kill has had a phenomenal first season,” Julie McNamara, CBS All Access’ EVP of Original Content, said in a statement. “Under the creative direction of Marc Cherry and the incredible performances of the cast, the series has become one of our most streamed original series. We look forward to bringing fans even more of this wonderfully soapy dramedy in its second season and can’t wait to see what themes Marc explores next.”

In Thursday’s finale, titled “Kill Me as if It Were the Last Time,” Beth Ann devises a plan for revenge after learning the shocking truth about her daughter’s death, Simone’s commitment to Karl is tested, and Taylor and Eli attempt to focus on their love story now that Jade is out of the picture.

Ali Video, Why Women Kill Comments Off on What Ginnifer Goodwin Told Husband Josh Dallas After Taking ‘Why Women Kill’ Role

Fun interview I found that I missed from August of Ginnifer and Sam Jaeger on Why Women Kill from Extra.

Ginnifer Goodwin and Sam Jaeger are starring in the new Marc Cherry project “Why Women Kill.”

The show takes place in one house, but follows three different women in three different decades.

Ginnifer plays a housewife named Beth Ann, who is married to a cheater named Rob. The pair opened up to “Extra” about their on-screen relationship.

Goodwin said, “Our characters on the surface are the perfect early 1960…s couple, but really we are just masking a hell of a lot of pain and damage.” Sam added, “It is that era, too, of a lot of things go unspoken… they are just awakening as society was awakening to the disparity between the sexes and the expectations put on women at that time.”

Ginnifer revealed she hasn’t let her husband Josh Dallas read any of the scripts. She explained, “I went in to meet with Marc Cherry in February… and he walked me through my entire storyline, scene by scene, for 10 episodes, and at the end I said, ‘I’ll take it.’ I went home and my husband said, ‘How did it go?’ and I said, ‘You have to watch it — that’s all I’m going to say. I will tell you nothing for the next five months.’”

Ali Articles & Interviews, Why Women Kill Comments Off on Ginnifer Goodwin Has a Warning About Her New Show for Once Upon a Time Fans

EOnline shares some warnings about Ginny’s new series for her OUAT fans!

Ginnifer Goodwin needed a break. The Once Upon a Time veteran was coming off lots of family fare, including the Disney fairy tale series, Zootopia, Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast and was ready to, well, be in something that she would watch. Enter Marc Cherry and Why Women Kill.

“I had spent years making material that, like, my kids can see. So yes, I wasn’t looking for that next,” Goodwin told a small group of reporters at the 2019 Television Critics Association press tour. “I was definitely looking for something that my husband and I would watch together alone at night when the kids are definitely in bed.”

And Why Women Kill, the new CBS All Access series from the creator of Desperate Housewives is definitely something she wouldn’t watch with her kids. Set in three different decades, the series follows Goodwin in the 1960s as Beth Ann, a quintessential housewife, Lucy Liu as socialite Simone in the 1980s and Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Taylor in present day, all women who live in the same house and have to deal with a very common problem: infidelity.

This is far cry from Snow White on Once Upon a Time. However, Goodwin hopes some of the Once fans follow her—if they’re old enough.

“I think the younger viewers should wait quite some time. Um, I only realized the other day when my mother told me that she showed my grandmother, who is in her late 90s, the trailer. It was the first time that I had thought about the fact that maybe even my mother and grandmother should not see some of these episodes, Goodwin said. “It’s the kind of show that I would binge watch, which is why I wanted to be part of it, and I was really hungry to be on something that I would kill to watch if I weren’t part of it. I’ll still binge watch it even though I’m part of it. So, there are darker elements. Yes, the darker elements may be a lot for the Once Upon a Time fans because we’re going to go pretty gross.”

Why Women Kill premieres August 15 on CBS All Access.

Ali Why Women Kill Comments Off on Ginnifer Goodwin Knows ‘Why Women Kill’ — And It’s Not Just Because Of Infidelity

What might push a woman to off her husband? Is it money, or an unhappy marriage, or a discovery that he cheated? The Why Women Kill trailer might lead you to believe that it’s infidelity that causes women to snap, but according to Why Women Kill star Ginnifer Goodwin, the CBS All Access show is about much more than that.

Why Women Kill introduces us to three married women, all living in the same lavish house during very different time periods: Beth Ann (Goodwin) in the ’60s, Simone (Lucy Liu) in the ’80s, and Taylor (Kirby Howell-Baptiste) in present day. Each woman faces an issue distinct from the rest: Simone discovers her husband is gay, and Taylor, though polyamorous, finds her husband lusting after her girlfriend. Beth Ann, meanwhile, has to keep up appearances and be the perfect housewife, all while knowing her husband Rob (Sam Jaeger) is nonchalantly committing adultery.

“Women have, in history, been so defined by their eras. They are so defined by the limitations and boundaries inherent to those times,” Goodwin tells Bustle, explaining how, out of all the Why Women Kill protagonists, Beth Ann has the least amount of social mobility, even after discovering her husband’s penchant for a late-night rendezvous. “She does not have the opportunities that women today do have. She has no opportunity for income outside of the support of her husband.” That makes it particularly difficult for her to move beyond her circumstances while her husband is out cavorting with other women.

“She has no self worth,” Goodwin continues. “She was taught that the only good that she could provide would be in the care-taking of a husband.”

Unlike Howell-Baptiste’s high-powered lawyer Taylor or Liu’s ’80s socialite Simone, Beth Ann’s position as a woman in the ’60s entirely defines who she is and what her options are. She essentially suffers from what Betty Freidan’s The Feminine Mystique (which makes an appearance in the pilot episode) calls “the problem that has no name” — she’s reached what society deems is “true feminine fulfillment,” and yet she’s unhappy. Though she doesn’t know it yet, Beth Ann has discovered the limits of the suburban housewife idyll.

This is further compounded by the fact that Beth Ann is, in actuality, a ’60s housewife stuck in the ’50s — eagle-eyed audiences may notice how Beth Ann’s clothing and hairstyle are about a decade out of fashion. “Her growth was stunted at a point in the ’50s that we’ll learn more about over the course of the series,” Goodwin reveals, hinting at a past trauma that’s brought up in the pilot episode. “She’s like the perfect ’50s housewife stuck in the ’50s.”

Ali Why Women Kill Comments Off on 5 reasons we’re excited for Lucy Liu’s Why Women Kill gives us a run down on why they are excited for CBS All Access’ new series Why Women Kill.

CBS All Access’ newest offering is Why Women Kill, a dark comedy series that explores marriage, infidelity, and women’s rights through the lens of three protagonists through the ages. It stars Ginnifer Goodwin as 1960s housewife Beth Ann, Lucy Liu as socialite Simone in the ’80s, and Kirby Howell-Baptiste as a high-powered lawyer in 2018. The show and its title tease that each woman’s marriage is teeming with betrayal and lies that could trigger deadly consequences.

The series should attract fans of the women-behaving-badly genre, as it comes from Desperate Housewives and Devious Maids creator Marc Cherry. But if that’s not reason enough for you to tune in, here are five more reasons Why Women Kill may be your newest addiction.

A killer lineup
The series boasts a deadly roster — how could you go wrong when one of your stars is a certifiable badass who’s graced the screens of Kill Bill and Charlie’s Angels? Besides the formidable team of Liu and Goodwin, the show’s true weapon is breakout star Howell-Baptiste, already a fan favorite from her scene-stealing appearances on shows like The Good Place and Killing Eve. Howell-Baptiste gets — and nails — the best lines on the show. When she stares down a patronizing contractor and tells him “My dick is bigger than yours,” viewers should be simultaneously terrified and admiring of her grit.

Anything men can do, women can do better
From Happy to Barry, leading men in comedies have been dominating the killing game. But why can’t women get in on the fun? Why Women Kill is riding the wave that titles like Good Girls and Dead to Me have set in motion for the late 2010s, putting women front and center of all the action. All these heroines have depth as well. They’re not separated into antiquated categories like “the wife” or “the bad girl”; they get to be whatever they so choose, with or without a man.

Society through the ages
One of the most fascinating elements of Why Women Kill is the depiction of how social issues have progressed (or not) through generations. While the three women’s stories take place in different eras, the show smartly finds ways to weave their narratives together. In the first episode, Beth Ann’s chauvinist husband (Sam Jaeger) condescendingly taps his mug to indicate his wife should immediately jump to refill his coffee.

Skip to the present: Eli (Reid Scott), who met Taylor at the Women’s March and outwardly celebrates her independence, is threatened by his wife’s status as the sole breadwinner and becomes infatuated with a woman who’s at his every beck and call (like pouring him coffee). While many of us think our society has shed some of its backwards ways, the show tells us that things haven’t changed as much as we’d like and perhaps modern men have more growing to do than they think.

It’s not all black and white
The show hints at betrayal, but it seems with each progressing story, the details become less clear-cut. Rob the Knob (as we like to call him) has no excuses. Yet Karl, Simone’s husband, elicits some sympathy as a closeted man who likely feared the consequences of coming out. And for Eli and Taylor, their polyamorous relationship brings up many complex issues that test their mutual trust and boundaries. It’s a lot of complicated, human drama that we can’t wait to see unfold.

The fashion of it all
The best part of the show exploring different time periods is seeing the fashions of each era. From Beth Ann and Rob’s prim and proper decor to Simone and Karl’s delightfully gaudy mansion to Taylor and Eli’s sleek digs, it’s amazing to take in. Simone, in particular, brings it — the big earrings, the bright fabrics visible from a mile away, the shoulder pads! Even if you prefer Taylor’s more toned-down leather jackets, you can’t deny that the ’80s were a time to behold in fashion.

Ali Josh Dallas Comments Off on Will Ginnifer Goodwin make an appearance on Manifest?

Any chance Ginnifer Goodwin will make an appearance on Manifest? I miss seeing her and her Charming husband Josh Dallas together. —Shelly

Know what, I actually remembered to run your question/wish by Ginny during our Twilight Zone chat, and her response was a quick, “I would love to. All they have to do is ask!” After all, the Manifest superfan noted, “There were a lot of people on that plane,” and who’s to say one didn’t look like TV’s erstwhile Snow White? (Goodwin will be free this fall, once done shooting CBS All Access’ Why Women Kill).
