Serial is one of the OG true crime podcasts, that got a lot of people into the podcasting realm. We were all hooked on the story of Adnan Syed and the murder of Hae Min Lee, that he still maintains his innocence for. Then in season 2 we were told the story of Bowe Bergdahl, the military deserter who was held captive in Afghanistan.
Season 2 of serial premiered on NPR in the winter of 2015 and for the past three years we've been told that season three is COMING, but we never got a solid date or even a real timeline for when we could expect it. All we were ever told was that season three was going to be huge.
Now, we FINALLY have a premiere date. Season three will be released on September 20th.
The website describes season three as that "Serial is heading back to court. This time, in Cleveland. A year inside a typical American courthouse. This season we tell you the extraordinary stories of ordinary cases. One courthouse, told week by week."
