Debuting in 2019, Truth Be Told was adapted from the Kathleen Barber novel Are You Sleeping by writer and showrunner Nichelle Tramble Spellman (The Good Wife, Justified).
Full of suspense, intrigue, and a love for true crime reporting, Spellman won an NAACP Image Award for the season 1 pilot, which saw Aaron Paul play Warren Cave, a man incarcerated for decades for murder but which he may have been wrongly convicted of.
This time the stakes are even higher though as Poppy and Eva confront the stark disparity of media coverage between Caucasian child abductions and the unreported disappearances of black teens; seeking to find the missing girls, potential victims of a sex trafficking ring, and bring them justice.
Season 3 will reunite Spencer with co-stars Mekhi Phifer (Dawn of the Dead), Tracie Thoms (Straight Up, Death Proof), Haneefah Wood (Nurse Jackie) and David Lyons for another gripping crime conspiracy – and personally, we can’t wait to get hooked all over again.

What else should I know about Apple TV Plus?
Apple’s answer to Netflix has a comparatively small library of films and shows to get stuck into – although now well over 100 and counting – but what is available is top-notch, well-produced fare with little in the way of filler.
The Morning Show was the calling card for Apple TV Plus at launch, costing $15 million per episode and is one of the best Apple TV shows on the platform. It was complemented by the epic sci-fi drama See starring Jason Momoa, space drama For All Mankind, and period comedy Dickinson. Bad Sisters (opens in new tab) is one of the more recent hits popular with audiences and critics.
But the service’s breakout success has been the Jason Sudeikis comedy Ted Lasso. It’s earned an army of fans and an impressive amount of awards attention, netting 20 Primetime Emmy nominations back in 2021 – a record for a freshman series.
The small but great library is set to grow at a steady pace and Apple TV Plus looks to have a pretty strong-looking upcoming schedule of new exclusive content.
We can’t wait to see Harrison Ford in new comedy series Shrinking on January 27. He’ll star alongside Jason Segel (Knocked Up, Forgetting Sarah Marshall), who co-created the show and also plays Jimmy, a therapist who decides to be brutally honest with everyone in his life after the death of his wife. From the minds behind Scrubs and Ted Lasso, and featuring the grizzled charm of Mr. Ford, we’re expecting this to be a laugh riot.
Then on February 17 comes the neo-noir thriller Sharper, set in New York and boasting a hugely talented ensemble cast: Julianne Moore (Far From Heaven), John Lithgow (Dexter), Justice Smith (All The Bright Places) and Sebastian Stan (Fresh). With no one what they seem and everybody out to inherit billions of dollars, just who is playing who in this slick, taut, twisty film from Benjamin Caron?
A first for Apple TV Plus, subscribers can enjoy new reality TV series My Kind of Country when it debuts on March 24, when we’ll see country music icons Jimmy Allen, Kacey Musgraves, Mickey Guyton and Orville Peck join Hollywood star Reese Witherspoon in a global search for country music’s next big thang.
