CHICAGO PUBLIC MEDIA News-Talk WBEZ/CHICAGO has made it official that its podcast SERIAL will return for its second season this FALL and will be doing a third season next SPRING.
In an e-mail newsletter, the show's producers said, "We are hard at work reporting not one, but two distinct new stories. This means we’re planning on a third season of SERIAL ... As it stands, we intend to launch Season Two this fall and Season Three next spring." Declining to outline the content of the stories, the producers added, "What we can say is that they’re very different from Season One, but no less interesting to us."
Season 1 of the podcast, hosted by SARAH KOENIG, drew millions of downloads; it followed the case of the murder of BALTIMORE teen HAE MIN LEE and the protestations of the friend convicted of murdering her, ADNAN SYED, that he was innocent.
