As previously announced, Tolman and Frost will play Alma and Bertram, a seemingly ordinary couple with mundane ambitions whose marriage is threatened when Alma finds out Bertram has been keeping a secret hobby.

Parrilla (The Tax Collector, Once Upon A Time) will portray Rita, the sardonic wife to the wealthy and evil Carlo Castillo. Rita rules over the garden club that Alma desperately wants to join, and is engaged in an affair with a younger lover while she waits for her elderly husband to die.

Cannon (Switched at BirthSin City Saints) will play Dee, Alma’s wry and brassy daughter who works as a waitress in a local diner. Though self-deprecating, Dee can be vulnerable under her emotional armor and is both excited and humiliated by her illicit affair with a secret lover.

Christie (The Haunting of Hill HouseAtlanta) will appear as Vern, a tough and rugged private detective, who Rita hires to investigate Scooter when she begins to suspect he's cheating on her.

Daddario (ShadowhuntersTommy) will play Scooter, the man with whom Rita is having an affair. A charming would-be actor, Scooter's lack of wit is made up for by his gorgeous appearance. Though he is well kept by Rita, he pursues another relationship elsewhere.

Falcón (Perry MasonQueen of the South) will portray Catherine, Carlo Castillo’s spinster daughter. Prim and proper, Catherine detests Rita, and returns to town after a mysterious accident, searching for a way to destroy her.

The new season of Why Women Kill will explore the true meaning of beauty, the hidden truth behind the facades people present to the world, how being overlooked by society can affect one's psyche, and, finally, the lengths to which one woman will go in order to finally belong.
