CBS All Access today announced it has given the green light to Tell Me a Story Season 2. Created by Kevin Williamson, Tell Me a Story takes the world’s most beloved fairy tales and reimagines them as a dark and twisted psychological thriller. Tell Me a Story Season 2 will explore a whole new set of fairy tales and characters.
“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,” said 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.”
The first seven episodes of Tell Me a Story Season 2’s first season are currently available to stream on CBS All Access. New episodes are available on demand weekly on Thursdays, exclusively for CBS All Access subscribers. The season one finale will be available to stream on Thursday, Jan. 3.
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.
The cast includes James Wolk, Billy Magnussen, Dania Ramirez, Danielle Campbell, Dorian Missick, Michael Raymond-James, Davi Santos, Sam Jaeger, Zabryna Guevara with Paul Wesley and Kim Cattrall.
From Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment, Tell Me a Story is written and executive produced by Kevin Williamson alongside Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor.
