Dec. 18 (UPI) -- CBS All Access has ordered a second season of its fairytale-themed, psychological thriller Tell Me a Story.
Season 2 of the anthology series will feature new stories and characters. The show was created by Kevin Williamson, whose credits include the Scream film franchise, as well as the TV shows The Vampire Diaries, The Following and Stalker.
"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," Julie McNamara, the streaming service's executive vice president of original content. "We can't wait to surprise and entertain viewers with a whole new set of tales next season."
Season 1 of the series starred James Wolk, Billy Magnussen, Dania Ramirez, Danielle Campbell, Dorian Missick, Michael Raymond-James, Davi Santos, Sam Jaeger, Zabryna Guevara, Paul Wesley and Kim Cattrall. The show put a terrifying spin on the classic children's tales "The Three Little Pigs," "Little Red Riding Hood" and "Hansel and Gretel."
Magnussen told reporters at New York Comic Con in October before that the show premiered that it would be "scary and dark and sexy."
