AppleTV+ Renews 'Truth Be Told' for Season 2

AppleTV+ has today renewed its original drama series Truth Be Told for a second season - after it was initially billed as a limited series. Octavia Spencer will reprise her role as Poppy Parnell in the new season that will revolve around a new case.

Right now, Spencer is the only cast member from the first season set to return for the second.

Nichelle Tramble Spellman created the drama. She executive produces with Spencer, Reese Witherspoon, Lauren Neustadter, Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping and Mikkel Norgaard. Hello Sunshine, Chernin Entertainment and Endeavor Content produce.

"Working with Octavia Spencer has been a dream come true for me," said Tramble Spellman. "I am honored to continue to build the character of Poppy Parnell with her, and my partners at Hello Sunshine and Chernin Entertainment. 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."

"Octavia's performance and Nichelle's story struck a chord with audiences," added Matt Cherniss, Head of Development, Apple Worldwide Video. "We are proud of this powerful show and the incredible team behind it, and look forward to a second season."
