Tell Me a Story cancelled

It’s not a happy ending for Tell Me a Story.

CBS All-Access announced today that it has dropped the axe on Tell Me a Story.

Although it was supposed to reimagine classic fairy tales and set them in the modern world, the series largely slipped away from that theme during its second season.

The series was most notable for casting Paul Wesley from the Vampire Diaries and Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix and the Netflix Marvel shows) as well as being produced by Kevin Williamson who wrote, created The Vampire Diaries, Dawson’s Creek and many of the Scream films.

“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. 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,” said Julie McNamara, CBS All Access EVP Original Content, in a statement.
