CBS All Access has renewed the new dramatic thriller Tell Me a Story for a second season. The series is a dark dive into the world of fairy tale characters, with season two confirmed to follow different characters than season one.

Tell Me a Story was created by Kevin Williamson. Williamson writes and executive produces along with Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor.

“The first season of Tell Me a Story turned conventional fairy tales on their heads, interweaving and modernizing three classic stories into a compelling thriller for today’s audiences, in a way only Kevin Williamson can,” stated Julie McNamara, Executive Vice President, Original Content, CBS All Access. “We can’t wait to surprise and entertain viewers with a whole new set of tales next season.”

Season one’s cast includes James Wolk, Paul Wesley, Danielle Campbell, Billy Magnussen, Dania Ramirez, Dorian Missick, Michael Raymond-James, Davi Santos, Sam Jaeger, Zabryna Guevara, and Kim Cattrall. CBS All Access did not confirm if some or all of season one’s cast would return for the upcoming season.

The season one finale is set to air on Thursday, January 3, 2019. The season’s first seven episodes are now streaming on CBS All Access.

The Season One Plot:

“Set in modern-day New York City, the first season of Tell Me a Story interweaves “The Three Little Pigs,” “Little Red Riding Hood” and “Hansel and Gretel” into an epic and subversive tale of love, loss, greed, revenge and murder.”
