Jordane Christie Teases Vern and Dee and What Comes Next on What Women Kill

Jordane Christie Teases Vern and Dee and What Comes Next on What Women Kill
Jordane Christie is lighting up Why Women Kill Season 2 with his charismatic character, private detective, and romantic partner.

He's got the unique position to be on the right side of a lot of kooky characters with glaring flaws, as Vern is strong, determined, and has a heart of gold. Jordane works magic against the leading ladies Allison Tolman and Lana Parilla.

We're so excited to share with you our conversation with Jordane.

I'm really enjoying your character on Why Women Kill.

Are you? That's beautiful.

Yes, I am.

That's amazing.

How'd you get involved with the show?

With the good old-fashioned audition process. But you know what? I guess it wasn't the old-fashioned way because the whole process for me, the inception of it, was all in... during last year, during the pandemic. So it came by way of auditions, appointments, but it was pretty much all from my living room.

Why Women Kill Season 2 Premiere Recap: What's in the Box?! (Grade It!)

Why Women Kill Season 2 Premiere Recap: What's in the Box?! (Grade It!)
Paramount+ has more insight to share with us about Why Women Kill… but Thursday’s Season 2 premiere is ultimately more concerned with why men kill. One man in particular, really.

The Marc Cherry-created dark comedy returned on Thursday with two episodes — its first new installments since Season 1 wrapped in October 2019. And this time, instead of the ’60s, ’80s and 2010s, the anthology takes place in 1949, where a plain housewife named Alma (Fargo‘s Allison Tolman) is desperate to be accepted into the ritzy and exclusive Elysian Park Garden Club.

‘Why Women Kill’ Season 2: Marc Cherry’s Soap Opera Mostly Finds Its Footing in the 1940s

‘Why Women Kill’ Season 2: Marc Cherry’s Soap Opera Mostly Finds Its Footing in the 1940s
It’s been over a year since audiences found out “Why Women Kill.” The first season, airing on then-CBS All Access, now Paramount+, followed three women from three different eras all with one goal in mind: Killing their husbands. The series, from “Desperate Housewives” creator Marc Cherry, had a similar bitchy cattiness that fans of the past ABC series loved, but the stories were varying shades of weak. A 12-month break seems to be what the doctor ordered as Season 2 finally showcases why Cherry’s shows are so compelling, settling in with one unified narrative and a shift in time period.

Where the first season took place in the 1950s, 1980s, and present day, this season sticks firmly in 1949 Los Angeles, a glittering world of glamour — for some. Alma Fillcot (Allison Tolman) is a lonely housewife whose prize possession is her garden. She dreams of joining the Elysian Park Garden Club,

Why Women Kill Season Premiere Review: From Inconsequential to Infamous

Why Women Kill Season Premiere Review: From Inconsequential to Infamous
The meek shall inherit the earth is a terrible phrase.

That's one of the many that the have-nots have hidden behind with the hope that their kindness and patience will prevail.

Why Women Kill Season 2 is a study in the haves and have nots, and those distinctions aren't only on a monetary level.

Alma Philcott isn't hurting for money. She has a lovely husband named Bertram, Bertie, for short, who loves her entirely. As a veterinarian, he makes a decent living, but his spending habits are modest.

Alma lives within those habits happily enough, but she's secretly pining for the day she will meet other women who share her passion for gardening, women who lunch in pretty dresses while chatting about the gardens they love.

Of course, Alma doesn't know that the Elysian Garden Club is a garden club in name only. She's tended her garden for years in the

Why Women Kill Season 2 Trailer: Lana Parrilla Plays a Wicked Socialite
Regina Mills, is that you?

That's the question I had to ask myself while watching the trailer for Why Women Kill Season 2.

From creator Marc Cherry, the sophomore season features a new ensemble cast and storylines set in 1949 that will explore what it means to be beautiful, the hidden truth behind the facades people present to the world, the effects of being ignored and overlooked by society and finally, the lengths one woman will go in order to finally belong.

The new trailer shows Lana Parrilla in character, and you can tell she's loving every single beat of her wicked new role.

The cast also includes Allison Tolman, B.K. Cannon, Jordane Christie, Matthew Daddario, Veronica Falcón, and Nick Frost.

Tolman plays a housewife determined to make her way into the inner circle of society, but Parilla's character stands in her way at every turn, even pushing her to the ground in one scene.
