Apple TV+ have unveiled the trailer for the second season of the NAACP
Image Award-winning drama “Truth Be Told,” from acclaimed writer,
showrunner, and executive producer Nichelle Tramble Spellman. Starring and
executive produced by Academy Award-winner Octavia Spencer, the anticipated
new season also stars Academy Award-nominee Kate Hudson in her first lead
role in a television series. The 10-episode second season of the anthology
drama, which provides a glimpse into America’s obsession with true crime
podcasts, will return on Friday, August 20, 2021 with the first episode,
followed by new episodes premiering every Friday.
Descending into the world of true-crime podcasts, season two follows
Octavia Spencer as podcaster Poppy Parnell, who risks everything—including
her life—to pursue truth and justice. Poppy dives into a new case that
deeply involves her childhood friend, media mogul Micah Keith (Hudson). As
developments unfold, their lifelong friendship is put to the ultimate test.
In addition to Hudson, joining the sophomore season are series regulars
