Serial (especially Season One), has to be one of the best things since Netflix.

It's the investigative podcast series, that delved deeply into the murder of Hae Min Lee, and followed the trial of her ex-boyfriend Adnan Masud.

The narrator Sarah Koenig's soothing tones talked many people through our workouts, spring-cleans and, when the story was just too gripping to be doing anything else, simply lying of the floor and staring at the ceiling to concentrate.

And nothing has really held our attention in the same way since.

Sure, Rabia Chaudry's spin-off, Undisclosed, helped us get our Adnan fix, and shows like My Dad Wrote A Porno had us in stitches on the tube, but no other true crime Podcast really tickled our pickle quite like Serial.

Well, good news to those suffering Serial withdrawal symptoms, the producers has got a new series in the works, and it sounds good.

S-Town will be hosted by This American Life producer Brian Reed.

That mean Sarah Koenig will just be behind the scenes producing, alongside This American Life's leading man, Ira Glass.

According to Rolling Stone.

S-Town arrives years after an Alabama man contacted This American Life to ask that the show investigate the son of wealthy man who allegedly boasted about getting away with murder.

Wha?!

Though that already seems stranger than fiction, there's another twist you could not write.

Vulture reported that after journalist Brian decided to look into the story.

...someone else ended up dead, and another story began to unfold — about a nasty feud, a hunt for hidden treasure and the mysteries of one man's life.

And if that doesn't sound like enough (will we ever be sated?), there are rumours the third series of Serial is underway.

Sarah Koenig was seen late last year recording court proceedings in Cleveland for a triple homicide trial.

Fingers crossed, people.
