Tell Me a Story takes the world's most beloved fairy tales and reimagines them as a dark and twisted psychological thriller. Set in modern-day New York City, the first season of this serialized drama 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.
It is being reported that CBS All Access has cancelled Tell Me A Story after two seasons. The sad news comes three months following the psychological thriller's sophomore run on the streaming service.
Along with today's cancellation comes news that the show's two existing seasons have been acquired by The CW. It's not clear when the broadcast network will start airing the show, though Season 1 could be positioned either this this summer or held for the 2020-2021 window this fall.
Created by Kevin Williamson, Tell Me A Story takes some of the most well-known fairy tales such as 'The Three Little Pigs', 'Little Red Riding Hood', and 'Hansel And Gretel' and interweaves them into a re-imagined tale of love, loss, revenge, greed, and murder.
