Remember Serial? Of course you do. It was Sarah Koenig’s addictive crime podcast that pretty much consumed all of our lives at the end of last year.
We were devastated when it ended. I mean seriously, our lives weren’t the same without that weird Mail Kimp ad. But great news today - Serial is coming back. With not one, but two, brand new series all about some brand new cases.
An email went out to all Serial subscribers yesterday revealing that the show was returning. The letter read:
‘We are hard at work reporting not one, but two distinct new stories. This means we’re planning on a third season of Serial. And we hope it means we can reduce the amount of time between the end of Season Two and the beginning of Season Three. As it stands, we intend to launch Season Two this fall and Season Three next spring. Sorry - we can’t tell you details about the new stories yet. What we can say is that they’re very different from Season One, but no less interesting to us.’
We don’t know many other details but season two is due this autumn, followed by season three in 2016.
Happy Friday everyone, if that hasn’t made your weekend - we’re not sure what will.
