    Anthology series Why Women Kill has been canceled after two seasons. The cancellation comes after the series was renewed for a third season by Paramount+ in December.

    Created by Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry, Why Women Kill focused on different sets of characters and time periods in each season. Season 1 starred Ginnifer Goodwin, Lucy Liu, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, and Alexandra Daddario as women in different eras dealing with infidelity in their marriages.

    Season 2 starred Allison Tolman, Lana Parrilla, B.K. Cannon, Jordane Christie, Matthew Daddario, Veronica Falcón, and Nick Frost. The season was set in the 1940s and focused on one woman's attempt to belong, no matter the cost.

    "Paramount+ has made the difficult decision not to move forward with Season 3 of Why Women Kill," a spokesperson told Variety. "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."

    Why Women Kill is available to stream on Paramount+.
