Kate Hudson will be joining the cast of Apple TV show "Truth Be Told" for its second season, a report claims, with Hudson becoming involved in a second major case for the podcast-centric drama.
Apple has yet to confirm details about a second season for "Truth Be Told" after renewing it in March, but the anthology series fronted by Octavia Spencer seems to have gained a cast member for the next season.Known for performances in "Almost Famous," "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days," and "Glee," Hudson will be taking a role that will be close to the heart of the story for the second season.
According to Deadline, Hudson will be taking the role of Micah Keith, a lifestyle guru and friend of central character Poppy Parnell, played by Spencer. The case for the second season is thought to deeply involve both Parnell and Keith, with their relationship put to the test.
While the first season focused on Parnell and having to confront the possibility her true-crime podcast helped put the wrong person in prison for a serious crime, the second will instead tackle "America's obsession with true crime podcasts," the report claims.
Production of the new season is expected to commence on October 26 in Los Angeles.
Created by Nichelle Tramble Spellman, the show is produced by Hello Sunshine, Chernin Entertianment, and Endeavor Content. Executive producers include Spencer, Spellman, Reese Witherspoon, Lauren Neustadter, Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping, and Mikkel Norgaard.
