Apple has renewed the drama series “Truth Be Told” for a third season.
It was on August 20 that the second season of the series, which stars Octavia Spencer, premiered. In addition, it was confirmed that Maisha Closson will serve as showrunner and executive producer for Season 3 of Truth Be Told.
Nichelle Tramble Spellman, the show's creator, acted as the showrunner for the first two seasons of the show. She will continue to serve as executive producer on the project.
It gives me great pleasure to announce that the Poppy Scoville story will continue on Apple TV Plus.” Tramble Spellman continued, “And I'm overjoyed to welcome Maisha Closson as our new showrunner and executive producer.” “We can't wait to show you everything we have in store for you,” said the team.
Spencer portrays podcaster Poppy Scoville, who is willing to risk everything, even her life, to find the truth and bring justice to the world. The second season, which was based on the novel by Kathleen Barber, marked the debut of Kate Hudson in her first main role in a television series, in which she played Micah Keith, Poppy's childhood friend, and media tycoon.
With strong performances by Octavia Spencer and the cast, as well as riveting storytelling by the immensely talented Nichelle Tramble Spellman, “Truth Be Told” continues to captivate audiences around the world, according to Matt Cherniss, head of development for Apple Worldwide Video.
“Truth Be Told” is currently in theatres in over 100 countries. “We, along with the show's global audience, are looking forward to the continuation of the story in season three.”
Nichelle Tramble Spellman is the creator and producer of “Truth Be Told,” which is co-produced by Hello Sunshine, Chernin Entertainment, and Endeavor Content. Season 3 is written and produced by Maisha Closson, who also acts as executive producer.
In addition to Spellman and Closson, Spencer, Reese Witherspoon, and Lauren Neustadter from Hello Sunshine, Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping from Chernin Entertainment, and Mikkel Norgaard serve as executive producers on the film.
Truth Be Told Season 3 Release Date
The second season of ‘Truth Be Told' premiered on Apple TV+ on August 20, 2021. Following then, new episodes were released every Friday until the season finale, which aired on October 22, 2021. Season 2 features a total of 10 episodes, with each episode lasting between 40 and 50 minutes in length.
Season 3 has yet to be officially announced, and there has been no official announcement as to whether it will be produced or not. However, Poppy's journey appears to be far from over, and there is a significant likelihood that another season may be commissioned at some point in the future.
Cast member David Lyons mentioned in an interview that there were many other directions that the show's plot could take in a future season 3 and that he might return to reprise his role in the series.
Even though no official declarations have been made, this strongly suggests that a third season is being considered.
Additionally, there is a wealth of material from which to take inspiration for a new season. Given that the first season of ‘Truth Be Told' drew inspiration from true crime podcasts, among other sources, there are a plethora of stories that might serve as inspiration for Poppy's next investigation.
This suggests that Nichelle D. Tramble Spellman and her team of writers have already conceived a solid outline for the plot arc that might be followed in a future season 3 of the program. Season 3 of ‘Truth Be Told' is expected to premiere in late 2022 if it is given the green light shortly.
Truth Be Told Season 3 Cast: Who can be in It?
Poppy Scoville-Parnell is played by Octavia Spencer, who also serves as the film's leading lady. Mekhi Phifer (Markus), Michael Beach (Ingram), Tracie Thoms (Desiree), Ron Cephas Jones (Shreve Scoville), and Haneefah Wood (Haneefah) are other regulars on the show (Cydie).
Because the crimes that Poppy investigates are so diverse, the cast of Poppy's Murder Mysteries changes dramatically from season to season. However, it appears as though David Lyons, who portrays Detective Aames, will return for a possible third season. In addition, we may anticipate a slew of new cast members being added to the show's roster shortly.
Truth Be Told Season 3 Plot: What can it be About?
As Season 2 comes to a close, it is revealed that Joshua was murdered by a former police officer named Martin, who harbored ill will toward Micah's husband because of a documentary film he produced.
The murder is also shown to have been carried out by Micah's business partner Ivy, who collaborated with him to prevent their brand, Shelter, from being damaged if Micah's falsehoods are exposed.
Martin is eventually slain, and Ivy is taken into custody. Even Poppy concludes that Micah did not murder her husband, and the two childhood friends repair their feelings for one another.
The prospective third season will revolve around Poppy becoming involved in yet another mystery, which she would explore through her podcast. She is expected to enlist the assistance of her buddy Markus once more, and Detective Aames may also make an appearance in this episode.
With regards to her personal life, Poppy's rocky emotional relationship with Ingram is expected to continue. The character of Poppy's father, Shreve, who begins to suffer from memory impairment in season 2, will likely struggle with his advancing age at the same time as he maintains the secret that Poppy is his biological daughter.
Finally, if the pattern established by the previous two seasons continues, the prospective third season will also revolve around an unexpected murder of some sort.
