The Voskhod ("sunrise") was an enlarged version of the Vostok, and was developed to fill the void when there were delays in the Soyuz program.

The Voskhod 3 mission was initially delayed because of the near disaster with Voskhod 2. Eventually, all follow on Voskhod (3-6) missions were cancelled after the Soyuz 1 disaster.

The Cancelled Flights

Note that there were no official crew assignments made for these four flights. The primary and backup crews listed below is purely speculative. It is correct that one of the flights would be an all female crew.
