Kevin Williamson has more stories to tell at CBS All Access.
The streaming platform today announced that Tell Me a Story has been renewed for a second season.
Tell Me a Story Season 1 launched back in October to mixed reviews. It has a 54 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
"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, Tell Me a Story Season 1 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.
Tell Me a Story Season 2 will explore a whole new set of fairytales with brand new characters, but it's unclear at this stage whether any of the cast members from the freshman run.
While CBS All Access has a bias for renewing series, the network canceled its first scripted original last week.
The unlucky candidate was One Dollar, but fans of the series were told a complete, cliffhanger-free story throughout its first and only season.
