After its Showtime axing, Three Women is set to premiere on Starz! Find out what it is and why this new series is going to be fun to watch.

Based on the 2019 novel by Lisa Taddeo, Three Women was developed by the author for Showtime as a limited series. However, in January 2023, the series was dropped despite being deep into production due to the merger of Paramount+ and Showtime which led to the cancellation of numerous shows. Thankfully, Starz stepped in to complete the series. It centers around Gia (Shailene Woodley), a writer grieving her lost family who takes a road trip across America for inspiration.

Along the way, Gia meets up with three women: Lina (Betty Gilpin), an Indiana homemaker stuck in a loveless marriage who “embarks on an affair that quickly becomes all-consuming and transforms her life;" Sloane (DeWanda Wise), a glamorous entrepreneur whose open marriage to Richard (Blair Underwood) seems perfect until “two sexy new strangers threaten their aspirational love story;" and Maggie (Gabrielle Creevy), a North Dakota student who “weathers an intense storm after accusing her married English teacher of an inappropriate relationship.”

The series appears to take an anthology approach of Gia writing out her encounters with each woman and their exploits while discussing their futures. It’s more upscale than Starz’ usual fare and now we know when it’s coming. Get all the details below!

When does Three Women premiere?

Three Women is set to premiere at midnight ET on Friday, Sept. 13, 2024 on the Starz app and at 10 p.m. ET that same night on the traditional channel. The show has 10 episodes, with one new installment streaming/airing weekly until the finale. We have the episode titles below:

  • Episode 1 - "Three Women"
  • Episode 2 - "Cord"
  • Episode 3 - "Sloane"
  • Episode 4 - "Maggie"
  • Episode 5 - "Gia"
  • Episode 6 - "Climax"
  • Episode 7 - "Two Women"
  • Episode 8 - "Twilight"
  • Episode 9 - "Sex on Drugs"
  • Episode 10 - "Her Name"

Actually for whatever reason, Starz gave rights to Australian streamer Stan to release the show so for those in Australia, they've already seen it. This premiere date is for those of us in the U.S. and other Starz territories. That does mean we technically have the trailer, the Australian one at least.

There is a question on if this could be another case of a show stretching out the source material too far, but the fact that the author is in charge means it should be faithful to the book, but also include some spins on the original stories. As much of American culture has shifted since 2019, Taddeo will likely be updating some plot points and the exploits of the women.

The star power with Woodley and Gilpin, among others, should get more attention. It’s a few months off but Three Women is set to finally hit this fall and likely be one of the must-watch shows of the coming season. I'm certainly excited about it!
