‘Truth be Told’ Season 3 Premiere

In December 2021, Apple TV+ renewed the series for the third season and offered it a Friday, January 20, 2023, launch date. 

Truth Be Told, a Mitchell Tramble Spellman creation, is one of the shows that joined Apple TV+ soon after its launch. 

The show’s first season landed on the streamer in December 2019, followed by the second in August 2021. 

Truth Be Told has managed an outstanding 7.1/10 stars across the previous two seasons on IMDb.

What’s ‘Truth Be Told’ Season Three About?

Truth Be Told generally focuses on murder cases across America, presenting pieces of evidence alongside ongoing investigations. 

In the first season, Poppy Parnell, played by Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer, a San Francisco journalist, begins a true-crime podcast supporting professor Chuck Buhrman’s murder in 1999. In season two, Poppy concentrates on a photographer-filmmaker’s murder.

The upcoming season will see Poppy Parnell saddened by the lack of attention by the media and authorities concerning the various cases of missing Black girls across America. 

The journalist teams up with a Union to present the victims’ names to the public to find them justice. A sex trafficking ring will also come into the picture as part of the suspects.
