Apple has renewed Truth Be Told for a second season.
Starring and executive produced by Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer, the series follows podcaster Poppy Parnell as she is compelled to reopen the murder case that made her a national sensation, and comes face-to-face with the man she may have mistakenly helped to put behind bars.

It is created by acclaimed writer, showrunner and executive producer Nichelle Tramble Spellman and produced by Hello Sunshine, Chernin Entertainment and Endeavor Content.
“Working with Octavia Spencer has been a dream come true for me. I am honored to continue to build the character of Poppy Parnell with her and my partners at Hello Sunshine and Chernin Entertainment,” said Spellman. “Apple continues to show their tremendous support for us and the show. I am thrilled to dive back into exploring our national obsession with true crime and how it plays out with our rich canvas of compelling characters.”
“I cannot wait to work with the talented Nichelle, as well as our partners at Apple, Hello Sunshine, Chernin Entertainment Endeavor Content and the entire ‘Truth Be Told’ family, to continue expanding these characters and this world,” added Spencer. “There is so much more to explore and we are are truly excited to begin creating new episodes, storylines and characters.”
“I’m thrilled to be making another season of ‘Truth Be Told’ with Apple, our incredibly creative group of producers and the infinitely talented Octavia Spencer,” commented executive producer Reese Witherspoon. “I can’t wait to see how Poppy Parnell’s next chapter unfolds.”
