Apple announced that the NAACP Image Award-winning drama series “Truth Be Told,” starring an executive produced by Octavia Spencer, has been renewed for a second season. The series is created by writer, showrunner and executive producer Nichelle Tramble Spellman and is produced by Hello Sunshine, Chernin Entertainment and Endeavor Content.
Spencer will reprise her role as Poppy Parnell for season two, which will unfold around a new case. The first season of “Truth Be Told” 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. 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.
“Truth Be Told” is executive produced by Octavia Spencer, alongside writer and executive producer Nichelle Tramble Spellman, Reese Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter for Hello Sunshine, Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping for Chernin Entertainment, and Mikkel Norgaard. The complete first season of “Truth Be Told” is now available to stream, exclusively on Apple TV+.
