Ginnifer Goodwin is getting payback. 

Ginnifer Goodwin has been cast as one of the three female leads in Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry’s Why Women Kill for CBS All Access.

New of Goodwin’s casting comes just one day after the streaming service announced that Lucy Liu has been cast in the show. 

Why Women Kill centers on three women living in three different decades: a housewife in the ‘60s, a socialite in the ‘80s, and a lawyer in 2018, all dealing with infidelity in their marriages.

Goodwin will play Beth Ann, whose story takes place in 1963. “She is kind, cheerful and warm. But if you get too close, you start to see that she wears a mask to hide her pain. Beth Ann’s whole world revolves around her husband, and so she is understandably defensive and immediately in denial when told Rob is having an affair. Determined to learn the sordid details for herself, Beth Ann is in for a life-changing shift of perspective,” per the official description.

Liu will play the elegant, stylish and effervescent socialite Simone.

Goodwin other credits include Snow White on Once Upon a Time and Big Love. You can see her next on Jordan Peele’s upcoming Twilight Zone reboot and Netflix’s Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings.
