Streaming service Apple TV+ has announced that hit show Truth Be Told has been renewed for a third season. The announcement was made via press release today alongside the news that Maisha Closson joins season three as showrunner and executive producer.

The show stars Octavia Spencer as podcaster Poppy Scoville and ahs already proven popular in its first and second seasons.

Descending into the world of true-crime podcasts, "Truth Be Told" stars Octavia Spencer 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 of "Truth Be Told" introduced Academy Award nominee Kate Hudson in her first lead role in a television series, starring as Micah Keith, Poppy's childhood friend and media mogul.

No timescale has been given for when we can expect the third season to land on our screens.

Apple TV+ is perhaps the best value in streaming right now, priced at just $4.99 per month. It's also available under the Apple One subscription bundle — a great option for anyone who also subscribes to services like Apple Music and Apple Arcade.
