CBS All Access Renews 'Tell Me a Story' for Season 2

Ahead of its January 3 season finale, CBS All Access has today renewed its original drama series Tell Me a Story for a second season. The drama will return with new episodes in 2019.

The drama's first season mixed the classic stories of the Three Little Pigs, Red Riding Hood and Hansel & Gretel into a contemporary, New York-set tale of love, loss, greed, revenge and murder. The second season will feature a new set of characters based on new fairy tales.

The cast for the first season included James Wolk, Paul Wesley, Billy Magnussen, Dania Ramirez, Danielle Campbell, Dorian Missick, Michael Raymond-James, Davi Santos, Sam Jaeger, Zabryna Guevara and Kim Cattrall.

Kevin Williamson created the drama. He executive produces with Aaron Kaplan, Dana Honor, Gonzalo Cilley, Andres Tovar and director Liz Friedlander. Outerbanks Entertainment and Kapital Entertainment produce.

"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 of Original Content, CBS All Access. "We can't wait to surprise and entertain viewers with a whole new set of tales next season."
