Based on Kathleen Barber’s novel ‘Are You Sleeping,’ ‘Truth Be Told’ is a drama series that follows Poppy Parnell, a true-crime podcaster who finds herself in the center of a reopened case involving a convicted killer, Warren Cave. The man who is in prison for murder is the same man Poppy helped put behind bars. Created by Nichelle Tramble Spellman, the show premiered in December 2019.
Although the series received a lukewarm response from the critics, it has proven to be popular among the audiences, mostly due to the strong performances delivered by the actors. Naturally, people are waiting for an update on ‘Truth Be Told’ season 2. Well, here is what we’ve got!

Truth Be Told Season 2 Cast: Who is in it?
Octavia Spencer essays the role of Poppy Parnell, an investigative reporter with a true-crime podcast. Her close circle of people includes her husband, Ingram Parnell (Michael Beach), father Leander “Shreve” Scoville (Ron Cephas Jones), sisters Desiree (Tracie Thoms) and Cydie Scoville (Haneefah Wood), and her long time friend and former detective Markus Knox (Mekhi Phifer).
The first season revolves around a convict, Warren Dave (Aaron Paul), who becomes the latest subject of Poppy’s podcast. Elizabeth Perkins plays Warren Cave’s mother, Melanie. Other cast members in the series are Lizzy Caplan (twins Josie and Lanie Buhrman), Annabella Sciorra (Erin Burhman), and Hunter Doohan (young Warren Cave).
The show has been planned in a manner that features several main characters, which carry over to the next season, while each season might pick up a new criminal case with new characters. However, it has not been confirmed whether we will see Aaron Paul, Elizabeth Perkins, Lizzy Caplan, and other actors from the first season in the upcoming episodes or not. Therefore, in season 2, apart from Poppy and her inner circle, we may see a new set of actors. In the second season, Kate Hudson will play Micah Keith, who is a lifestyle guru and Poppy’s old friend.
Truth Be Told Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?
Season 1 throws intense twists after twists. The season’s final episode ties all the loose ends of the plot, although it does not give us closure. However, we finally know that Warren Cave is innocent, indeed! But the Buhrman family has a lot to sort out, which now only comprise the two living members – the twins Josie and Lanie. One can’t fathom who needs more help – Lanie, who has an unhealthy obsession with her twin, or Josie, who was driven to kill her father for the sake of her sister. While all of this goes on, Poppy’s professional life infringes upon her personal life, causing her loved one to suffer.
Season 2 will see Poppy’s strained relationship with another old friend Micah Keith, as both the women deal with a new case that involves them. Will their friendship survive? As far as Poppy’s family is concerned, more attention on her part is required if they want to get through the tough times.
