Serial Season 1 Returning For Daily New Episodes To Cover Adnan Syed's Retrial!

Filed under: Legal MattersViolenceViral: News

no title

Hae Min Lee's family might not be happy about this, but we sure bet fans will be!

Serial set the recent true crime craze into motion in Late 2014 when Sarah Koenig began examining the trial and conviction of Adnan Syed on her podcast, and it looks like she's not done with the story just yet.

That's because while Season Two of the hit series has been following the controversial story of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, This American Life will actually be returning to the original murder case now that Adnan has been granted a retrial!

The reboot will consist of (at least) three episodes featuring new evidence that could lead to the now-36-year-old's freedom.

Adnan was originally found guilty of premeditated murder back in 2000, but now a new witness named Asia Chapman claims to have been with him just 30 minutes before Hae was last seen and is coming forward to testify on his behalf.

Sarah and producer Dana Chivvis have already released the first episode of the miniseries on their website, which basically recounts the first day of the hearing in Baltimore Circuit Court on Wednesday.

Two more episodes have been teased, and if the case continues to offer new evidence, so will Serial.

We're not sure what reaction we were expecting, but this is much more emotional than we anticipated.

It's been 17 years since Hae Min Lee was murdered, and over a year since Serial's first season examining the case wrapped.

But the victim's family only just spoke publicly for the first time this week.

If you've heard of the popular This American Life podcast Serial, then you're probably aware that Adnan Syed is currently serving a life sentence in prison for strangling his girlfriend Hae back in 1999.

Well, similarly to the developments coming from Netflix's Making a Murderer, the doubts cast on the trial due to Sarah Koenig's investigation seem to be making a case for a retrial for Adnan… much to the dismay of Hae's family and friends.

In fact, at the hearing for the potential retrial in Baltimore Circuit Court on Wednesday, the family issued a statement to Deputy Maryland Attorney General Thiru Vignarajah, saying:
