CBS All Access confirmed that the network has ordered a second season of the platform’s original series “Tell Me A Story”. The series, created by Kevin Williamson, takes the world’s most beloved fairy tales and reimagines them as a dark and twisted psychological thriller. Fans of the show can look forward to season 2, which 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.”
Set in modern-day New York City, the first season 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.
If you haven’t jumped into the series yet, the first seven episodes of “Tell Me A Story: Season 1” 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 January 3. From Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment, “Tell Me A Story” is written and executive produced by Kevin Williamson alongside Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor.
CBS All Access is also the home to “Star Trek: Discovery,” which will be launching into season 2 in the new year. That series is scheduled to return on January 17th, with Sonequa Martin-Green (Commander Michael Burnham), Michelle Yeoh (Philippa Georgiou), Doug Jones (Commander Saru), Shazad Latif (Ash Tyler), Anson Mount (Captain Christopher Pike), Anthony Rapp (Lt. Commander Paul Stamets), Mary Wiseman (Ensign Sylvia Tilly), Wilson Cruz (Dr. Hugh Culber), Mary Chieffo (L’Rell), and Ethan Peck (Spock).
The new year will also add the “Twilight Zone” reboot to CBS All Access. The platform recently announced that Greg Kinnear will appear in the series, along with Steven Yeun, host and narrator Jordan Peele, John Cho, Sanaa Lathan, Kumail Nanjiani, Adam Scott, Allison Tolman, and Jacob Tremblay.
