Poppy Parnell, the mastermind behind the famous true-crime podcast, is played by Octavia Spencer. Spenser has won multiple Golden Globes and Academy Awards.

Katherine Lanasa portrays the character of Noa Havilland, Poppy’sPoppy’s podcast producer. Tami Roman is seen as Lillian Scoville, Poppy’sPoppy’s stepmother. Both the actresses are recurring characters in both seasons.
Upcoming Season new Cast
The upcoming season will see a variety of new actors play crucial roles. A new major case means fans can expect to see new faces. Following reports from March 23rd, 2022, Gabriel Union will play a vital role in the upcoming season. Gabriel is best known for her roles in Bad Boys (2003) and L.A.’sL.A.’s Finest (2019-2020). Furthermore, Ana Ayora and Richardo Chavira have joined the team and will be a vital part of season 3. The production team is yet to reveal the rest of the cast for the third season. However, we are hopeful that the team will soon disclose this information.
According to reports, just two months after the second season wrapped up, the team started work on season 3. This means that fans of Truth Be Told can expect a third season to release very soon. Apple T.V. has still not announced the exact release date for the new season. However, according to reports, fans can expect the third rendition of this true-crime series to drop on October 21st, 2022.
Looking back at the first two seasons, we can deduce that the new season will have 8-10 episodes, with each episode stretching over 45 minutes.
Truth Be Told Season 3 Storyline
Truth Be Told is about the true-crime podcast run by Poppy Parnell. Parnell digs deep into old cases where she feels the offender has been wrongly convicted. Her first case is about the Bushman family, where the father was found dead in the house after a Halloween party. For this, the court had convicted Warren Cave and sentenced him to prison. As Polly does her research into the case, she unveils that the father used to repeatedly rape his daughter, making Polly believe that maybe the mother was involved in the murder. Her show soon gained much media traction and caused the police to reopen the investigation.
In the second season we see Parnell’sParnell’s past catch up with her as she involves herself in the murder investigation of Micah Keith’sKeith’s husband. Micah is a longtime friend of our protagonist, and revisiting their past brings back memories that Micah had once tried to escape. This causes tensions to develop between Keith and Parnell’sParnell’s friendship and causes strain on Parnell’sParnell’s personal life.
Since the series follows an anthological theme, the plot for the third season will be completely different from the first two seasons. To find out the new story, fans will have to wait for a trailer to release. Multiple new characters, as stated above, will be joining the show for its third rendition. With new characters come new stories, new drama, and obviously, new murders.
The trailer for the third season is yet to release. As the show is still under production, there have been no updates regarding a trailer. However, if the show does release on the expected date, the streaming platform could drop a trailer about a month before the show is available for streaming.
Maybe not a trailer, but the team has released a poster for the new season. In the sign, we can see the show’s two leading women, Octavia and Kate, looking fierce.
With confirmations from both Apple T.V. and the show’s executive producers, we can say that a season 3 of Truth Be Told will release soon. With most of the production almost complete, an October release is highly likely.
