Truth Be Told season 3 on Apple TV+ will deliver chills


Apple TV dropped the official trailer for the new season on January 5, 2023, and it offers a glimpse of the numerous pivotal events set to unfold in the latest installment. It opens on a frightening note as Spencer's character asks,

''Is there any circumstance more terrifying than when a child goes missing?''

One of the major plot points is established: a local teen, Drea Spivey, goes missing. However, Spencer's character reveals in her podcast that not a single news outlet has covered her disappearance. Based on the trailer, it seems like the new season will focus on the mysterious disappearance of various young girls.

The trailer subsequently depicts several key scenes from the upcoming season but doesn't give away too many important details that could potentially spoil the viewing experience for fans.

The trailer maintains a frighteningly mysterious tone, similar to the first two seasons, and promises to deliver an eventful season with lots of thrills and drama. Apple TV+ Press' description of the third season reads:

''In season three, Poppy (Spencer), frustrated by the lack of media attention for several young missing Black girls, teams with an unorthodox principal (Union) to keep the victims' names in the public eye, while chasing down leads to a suspected se* trafficking ring that may have ensnared them.''

Based on the trailer and synopsis, viewers can look forward to another gripping season that delves deep into the truth behind many brutal crimes. The upcoming season features ten episodes and follows the usual weekly-release format.
