CBS All Access has renewed Kevin Williamson’s fairytale thriller “Tell Me a Story” for Season 2.
Set in modern-day New York City, the first season of the freshman drama 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 series stars 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.
“Tell Me a Story” is currently seven episodes into its first season, which debuted in October, with new installments dropping on Thursdays. The Season 1 finale will stream Jan. 3.
“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 renewal comes just after CBS All Access made its first-ever cancellation last week, ending drama “One Dollar.”
From Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment, “Tell Me A Story” is written and executive produced by Williamson alongside Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor.
