“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 VP 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 tales go through the matters of love, loss, greed, revenge, and murder. It is a psychological thriller that is meant for a more age appropriate means of viewing. The show’s cast brings out their very best to these complex characters.
There is no premiere date set for season two. You can check out the first seven episodes on the CBS All Access streaming service as a subscriber. New episodes come out every Thursday. The season one finale will be available on January 3.
