Apple has renewed Truth Be Told for a third season.
Created and executive produced by Nichelle Tramble Spellman, the drama is set in the world of truecrime podcasts. Octavia Spencer stars as podcaster Poppy Scoville, who risks everything — including her life — to pursue truth and justice. Based on the novel by Kathleen Barber, the series provides a unique glimpse into America’s obsession with true crime podcasts and challenges its viewers to consider the consequences when the pursuit of justice is placed on a public stage. The second season introduced Kate Hudson in her first lead role in a TV series, starring as Micah Keith, Poppy’s childhood friend and media mogul.
Season 3 will be helmed by Maisha Closson (“Claws,” “How to Get Away with Murder”), who will also serve as showrunner and executive producer.
“I am excited that the Poppy Scoville journey will continue to unfold on Apple TV+. And, I’m just thrilled to welcome Maisha Closson as our new showrunner and executive producer,” said Spellman. “Can’t wait to show you all what we have in store for you.”
“Truth Be Told continues to captivate audiences around the world with its strong performances from Octavia Spencer and the cast, as well as the riveting storytelling from the immensely talented Nichelle Tramble Spellman,” said Matt Cherniss, head of development, Apple Worldwide Video. “We, along with the show’s global fans, can’t wait for the story to continue in season three.”
