Three Women, a limited series focusing on female desire, is set to premiere this September on Starz.

The network announced the premiere date for the drama on Thursday, May 30, after picking the series up from Showtime.

Based on the bestselling book of the same name by Lisa Taddeo, Three Women follows a group of women trying to radically change their lives.

The drama stars Shailene Woodley, Betty Gilpin, DeWanda Wise and Gabrielle Creevy. The cast also includes Blair Underwood, Jason Ralph, and John Patrick Amedori.

Gilpin plays Lina, a homemaker in suburban Indiana, who is a decade into a passionless marriage when she embarks on an affair that transforms her life.

Three Women was originally ordered by Showtime. But the network decided not to air the completed 10-episode first season as it moved toward an integration with Paramount+. Showtime also canceled Let the Right One In and American Gigolo as part of the merger, as previously reported.

In March 2023, Starz announced it had picked up the series.

Laura Eason (The Loudest Voice and House of Cards) is the showrunner, and author Lisa Taddeo is creator and executive producer. Kathy Ciric and Emmy Rossum are also executive producers.

Three Women will premiere Friday, Sept. 13 at midnight on the Starz app. On TV, the show debuts at 10:00 PM ET/PT in the U.S. on Starz.
