CBS All Access Cancels 'Tell Me a Story' After Two Seasons

CBS All Access has today opted to cancel its original season-long anthology series Tell Me a Story after two seasons. However, The CW has also picked up the linear rights to the series to air during the upcoming year.

The drama's second season starred Paul Wesley, Odette Annable, Danielle Campbell, Matt Lauria, Eka Darville, Natalie Alyn Lind, Ashley Madekwe and Carrie-Anne Moss.

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

"The brilliant Kevin Williamson brought our favorite fairy tales to life in an anthology format that twisted and subverted the stories we all know into modern thrillers," said Julie McNamara, Executive Vice President and Head of Programming, CBS All Access. "It has been a privilege to work with such an elite and talented group of creative minds like Kevin, Aaron Kaplan and the team at Kapital Entertainment, as well as the amazing cast of Tell Me a Story, who did a phenomenal job personifying and reinventing beloved characters from these six fairy tales."
