It does not.

#### Explanation:

For a simple pendulum with a small angle of deviation from the center point:

$T = 2 \pi \sqrt{\frac{L}{g}}$

where $g$ is the gravitational field strength and $L$ is the length of the string.

It is clear that the period is independent of the tension in the string. So the tension will not affect the period.
