Kate Hudson will star alongside Octavia Spencer in Season 2 of the drama series Truth Be Told, on Apple TV+, according to Deadline.
Created by Nichelle Tramble Spellman and produced by Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine, Chernin Entertainment and Endeavor Content, it’s a quasi-anthology series where there is a central protagonist(s) that carries over as each season focuses on a new story with new characters. Season 2, which provides a glimpse into America’s obsession with true crime podcasts, is set to begin production in Los Angeles on October 26, according to Deadline.
Spencer will reprise her role as Poppy Parnell for season two, which will unfold around a new case. The first season of “Truth Be Told” follows podcaster Poppy Parnell as she is compelled to reopen the murder case that made her a national sensation, and comes face-to-face with the man she may have mistakenly helped to put behind bars. The series provides a 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.
