We discuss whether there will be a Season 4 of the Apple TV+ series Truth Be Told and its renewed or canceled status. 

Truth Be Told is a crime drama series from Apple TV+. The series was created by Nichelle Tramble Spellman (The Good Wife) and is based on the 2017 novel ‘Are You Sleeping’ by Kathleen Barber. Each season focuses on a different case for our lead amateur sleuth Poppy Scoville to solve. Poppy (Octavia Spencer) is an investigative reporter who hosts her true crime podcast, discussing the ongoing investigations that she is involved in.

Season three centers on a sex trafficking ring in Oakland and the disappearances of many teenage girls in the local area. Poppy is desperate to find the missing black girl Drea Spivey, but there is also a white girl called Emily Mills missing at the same time, and Emily is the one getting all the media attention. This racial injustice leads Poppy to team up with Eva Pierre (Gabrielle Union), a no-nonsense Principal who stands up against these prejudices. Poppy is always joined by her trusty colleagues, detective Aames (David Lyons) and former detective Markus Killebrew (Mekhi Phifer), whose involvement becomes more personal and entangled as the season draws on.

The third season of Truth Be Told has been positively received by critics and fans. The new episodes hold an impressive score on IMDB, with two positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. Furthermore, the show can be consistently found in the top ten most popular series on Apple TV+. I found the series to be a mixed bag myself, though. The central crime saga is interesting, and some important issues are being raised, but the show relies too often on over-dramatic reveals and far-fetched plotting. With all that being said, will Apple be renewing the show for a fourth season?

Will there be a Season 4 of Truth Be Told – renewed or canceled status

April 25, 2023, Cancelation Update

It has been confirmed that Truth Be Told has been canceled, and viewers will not receive a Season 4. This is not surprising given that Apple TV+ appears to be leaning towards critically praised TV shows as part of their long-term strategy. 

The change of strategy meant Truth Be Told did not fit the mold. However, fans will be happy that they at least got three seasons.

March 14, 2023 Update

Truth Be Told was one of the first shows released by the prestigious streaming platform Apple TV+. Since its debut back in December 2019, the series has released three seasons, with guest-starring appearances from Aaron Paul, Lizzy Caplan, and Kate Hudson.

Apple is yet to announce details of a fourth season, but it would seem likely that the company will decide to renew the show. The crime series is popular on the streaming platform and well-liked by critics. If there is a fourth story to be told, then Apple will be eager to renew the show.

If we look back at the show’s renewal history, Apple took quite a few months to make the announcement. Season two aired in August 2021, and the series wasn’t renewed for a third season until December 2021. Fans may have to wait a few months for renewal updates. Overall though, it seems likely that there will be a fourth season. There is always a crime to investigate, and Poppy’s closest allies seem to all be battling their demons, with enough material to be going on with for plenty more seasons to come. As always, we will keep you posted on any updates in the pending renewal of Truth Be Told.

    I am a crime show fan. This show has kept me on the edge every single episode, all three seasons. There has to be a 4th season and maybe a 5th. Love the cast.

  • March 26, 2023 at 4:31 am

    Excellent series, all the actors are great! Please renew for a Season 4

  • March 29, 2023 at 7:19 pm

    This is insanely good. Octavia has found her place. This is an opportunity to take today’s biggest issues and explain them in a human detailed way to watchers. Poppy does it in a compelling way. My God, it’s endless. Mass shootings, the relaxed gun laws, abortion stories, WHITE SUPREMACY up close. Endless topics that if done as well as season three could possibly change the national conversation in CONGRESS! Please do not lose this gem you’ve uncovered. I’m a discerning consumer and rarely comment. I cannot say enough. Thank you Octavia. This has to take a toll on her soul but the light shed on these travesties shines bright, sunshine is the best disinfectant. Thank you again. Happy to offer more comment, just ask. [email protected]

  • April 2, 2023 at 12:22 am

    This is truly one of the best and diverse crime drama that’s caught my interest in quite some time. Can’t get enough of Octavia Spencer and Mekhi Phifer. Their dialogue is fire on “Truth Be Told”. This series keeps me wanting more. Fingers crossed there will be a season 4??????

  • April 2, 2023 at 3:29 am

    I’m anxiously awaiting the 4th season of Truth Be Told. I’m not easily interested in anything on television, but this series has been invigorating, powerful, thought provoking, and a great get away from the real challenges faced in my position daily. I love great acting as this cast portrays, armed with creative writing and excellent directing. I do hope Apple will quickly decide to renew and hurry to get new material filmed and put out there for us connoisseurs.

  • April 2, 2023 at 10:20 pm

    Please renew! My husband and myself love it!

  • April 4, 2023 at 12:56 am

    I only recently dis covered this series, but loved it immediately! I quickly worked my way through all 3 seasons and now wait impatiently for season 4. Don’t let us down!!!

  • April 7, 2023 at 1:10 pm

    Seriously?! Why is season 4 even a discussion??? DO IT! TBT is the only reason I have (and continue to renew) my apple subscription! I find myself wishing for Friday so I can check out the next episode! IF you all (apple) have decided not to do a season 4; I beg you (in my Poppy Scoville voice) to RECONSIDER!!!

  • April 14, 2023 at 2:25 am

    Truth be told is 1 of the best TV shows out there right now .. it’s real everyday life sh*t. Everytime a great show comes they cancel it , why ? Who knows . Truth be told needs a season 4 , 5 maybe even more ..keep them coming please .

  • April 14, 2023 at 6:56 am

    Please renew this show! Octavia Spencer is brilliant. The whole cast is amazing and the stories keep you on the edge of your seat. There definitely is a story or stories to be told. The death of Ochoa, Poppy’s hunt for her biological father and what will their meeting be like, what’s in the future for Aimes, and what is going to be the fallout for Shreve and Liv? Will Shreve’s CTE bring him down? So many questions.

  • April 24, 2023 at 4:58 pm

    I’m so glad I found this show. I absolutely love it! Please keep it going!

  • April 27, 2023 at 1:36 am

    So sad!!! I love this show!!!!! Just one more season!

  • April 27, 2023 at 11:42 pm

    please continue with the series, it is a suspenseful show that my whole family loves…. we have been waiting for the next season to come out. please keep it going

  • April 28, 2023 at 12:07 am

    One of the best shows on tv. Please don’t cancel.

  • April 28, 2023 at 3:53 pm

    One of the best shows that I think that I’ve ever seen. It seems that there’s a lot of truth to all these stories probably don’t want to keep it going because of all the truth to it. I wish that another network would pick it up and keep going with it because it is an amazing cast and amazing show.

  • April 29, 2023 at 12:55 am

    Please renew Truth Be Told for season 4. The acting is fantastic, with Octavia over the top. I would hate Apple TV to cancel a show with many black actors. It won’t be received well with a cancellation.

  • May 1, 2023 at 12:53 am

    I cannot believe you’re cancelling this show!!! The only reason I watch Apple TV. I hope another network picks this up. TV at its best. Octavia is fire!

  • May 1, 2023 at 4:09 am

    This show is amazing with an amazing cast! Are you crazy to cancel it?! Please renew it!!!!! My husband and I watch it. Season 3 was so good!

  • May 2, 2023 at 1:05 am

    The best show on Apple, of course with a leading Black cast, I knew they wouldn’t keep this show, that deals with issues that are happening today in this Country, I pray Netflix, Hulu, will pick the show up, we need this show, looking at issues that are not being reported in the news, voices that are over looked in Black and Brown community, our Voice is always silence, the current shows on TV, or cable doesn’t come close the brilliant cast, the storyline superior to any current series on TV , but if was negative, gangs, violent, or a comedy there would be a season 4.

  • May 3, 2023 at 8:59 pm

    How can they say this show doesn’t “fit” in their mold? This is a great show, I can name a few shows on APPLE that should be canceled!! Man i’m so upset there won’t be a season 4! The only reason why it’s being canceled because it’s an ALL BLACK CAST! I’m from the Bay Area and this last season was spot on with their storyline. Untold issues happening in the black and brown communities ! Ughh I’m so mad it’s canceled! Now that this is gone, there is only two other shows that are interesting. Everything else is garbage

  • May 3, 2023 at 11:10 pm

    Truth be told and Servant were the only reason for me getting Apple TV. Well since they’re both gone time to cancel subscription. Back to Hulu and Netflix.

  • May 8, 2023 at 6:38 pm

    We seriously need more seasons of truth be told one of the best shows on Apple TV

  • May 10, 2023 at 1:11 am

    Either the suits are not watching what the viewers are positively saying or they have another mindless comedy show in the works.
    Please renew this show for season 4. You have a great cast and the scripts are some of the best.
    I read on headline that it was your “Flagship” program but now it does not “fit the mold”? Why”

  • May 11, 2023 at 2:42 am

    What, cancel my show? Cancel a hit show? Apple TV, have you gone mad?
