If you’ve been wondering what some of the “Vampire Diaries” and “Originals” stars are doing now that the shows have ended, then look no further than CBS All Access’ new show, “Tell Me a Story.”

Paul Wesley, who wrapped his run on “TVD” last year, and Danielle Campbell, who ended hers on “Originals” earlier this year, star in the new streaming series, which premieres its first episode on the platform on Wednesday. Aside from featuring alums of the “TVD” universe, the actors told International Business Times at New York Comic Con that there are a few other reasons their fans will enjoy the new show.

“Tell Me a Story” is a modern-day, dark reimagining of iconic fairy tales. Set in New York City, the 10-episode first season interlinks new depictions of the classic “Hansel and Gretel,” “The Three Little Pigs” and “Little Red Riding Hood” stories. The fact that the show’s a psychological thriller is why Wesley, who plays Eddie, thinks fans from his “The Vampire Diaries” days will enjoy it so much.

“‘The Vampire Diaries’ premiered a decade ago. A lot of those kids grew up and they’re all kind of, they’re young adults or they’re full-on adults or, who knows, maybe they’re senior citizens, I don’t know,” he told IBT. “But most of them have grown up and I think that they probably will be excited about the fact that this a — it’s, unfortunately, nothing like ‘Vampire Diaries,’ in a good way, though.”

He continued: “This isn’t to put down ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ but this is like a slightly more sophisticated, mature, adult, thematic, that isn’t as soap opera-esque, I suppose. And I think that my fans will enjoy the fact that there is like a hint of the supernatural, but it’s actually not there. There’s nothing. It’s just the folklore’s there.”

Campbell, who plays Kayla, reiterated that “there’s no supernatural component” to the series, but that doesn’t mean the fans following her over from “The Originals” won’t still fall in love with the show.

“It’s dark and sexy, like ‘Originals,” she told IBT. “But it’s completely new characters, completely new story. It’s present day [and] it’s New York City. So, I don’t think that there’s too much that’ll relate to it in that component, but I think they’re gonna love it. I think they’re gonna love it a lot.”

As if having these two “TVD” universe alums involved in the show weren’t enough, there’s also another one, albeit behind the scenes. Kevin Williamson, who served as the co-creator of “The Vampire Diaries, ” is also the co-creator of this new series.

In addition to Wesley and Campbell, the cast also includes James Wolk (Jordan), Billy Magnussen (Nick), Dania Ramirez (Hannah), Dorian Missick (Sam), Michael Raymond-James (Mitch), Davi Santos (Gabe), Sam Jaeger (Tim), Zabryna Guevara (Detective Garcia) and Kim Cattrall (Colleen).
