Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, especially when she's on a mission to murder.

Deadly Women, the hit Investigation Discovery series that examines the motives and modus operandi of female murderers, is back for an all-new season.

While males are often driven by anger, impulse, and destruction, women usually have more complex, long-term reasons to kill. Using reconstructions, the series re-creates the horrific murders committed by women throughout crime history, and investigates the dark forces and life circumstances, that drove them to kill.

The womens' motives for murders are complex: There are thrill killers, black widows, and love affairs that turn into fatal attractions.

Former FBI agent and profiler Candice DeLong offers insights into the psychology of the female killers.

Along with information about the cases, the series offers insight into the minds of these intriguing women who simultaneously horrify and fascinate us.

Deadly Women returns to Investigation Discovery on August 22 at 9/8c!
