Truth be Told

Truth Be Told is back with a second series on AppleTV+ and to mark the occasion, we had the pleasure in speaking to two of its key players, and returning stars, Mekhi Phifer and Ron Cephas Jones.

Speaking to the duo virtually, we speak about our appetite as audience members for true crime, and what it was like collaborating with Ocatavia Spencer. They also speak about returning back to the set for a second season, and we asked a question we have wanted to for years: does Mekhi Phifer sing along to Lose Yourself by Eminem during the verse that features his name?

Watch the full interview with Mekhi Phifer and Ron Cephas Jones here:


Descending into the world of true-crime podcasts, season two follows Octavia Spencer as podcaster Poppy Parnell, who risks everything—including her life—to pursue truth and justice. Poppy dives into a new case that deeply involves her childhood friend, media mogul Micah Keith (Kate Hudson). As developments unfold, their lifelong friendship is put to the ultimate test.

Highly anticipated second season of the anthology drama series premiered globally on Friday, August 20, 2021 on Apple TV+ with the first episode, followed by new episodes premiering every Friday.
