This morning Apple TV+ unveiled a first look at the third season of its NAACP Image Award-winning drama “Truth Be Told,” starring Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer and new addition, award-winning actress Gabrielle Union. Hailing from acclaimed writer, showrunner and executive producer Nichelle Tramble Spellman, the 10-episode third season sees Spencer reprise her role as investigative reporter turned true crime podcaster (Poppy Scoville), to take on a new case. “Truth Be Told” season three will make its global debut with the first episode on Friday, January 20, 2023, followed by one new episode weekly every Friday.
Bingers could watch the entire series over a weekend starting on March 24, 2023.
Apple further noted that 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 sex trafficking ring that may have ensnared them. In addition to Union, returning cast members include series regulars Mekhi Phifer, David Lyons, Ron Cephas Jones, Merle Dandridge, Tracie Thoms, Haneefah Wood, Mychala Faith Lee and Tami Roman."
I don't know about you, but I'd be willing to pay up to $11.99/mo. if Apple gave me access to new series in their entirety instead of piecemeal like cable TV does on a weekly basis. I loved the first 3 episodes of the new Echo 3 series. Now having to wait to watch it weekly is aggravating. It kills the tension of a series. I thought streaming was to be different.
What are your thoughts on Apple TV+ dragging out series out like cable channels do on a weekly basis?
