It's only been five months since Serial’s first season ended, yet it's felt like 84 years. Fans have passed the time by relistening from the beginning, making parodies or spinning completely unsubstantiated theories that explain everything, all the while wondering when the next season would surface. Well, wonder no more, Serial-philes!
In an email to newsletter subscribers, Sarah Koenig and co. not only announced when the next season would premiere, but also unveiled plans for a third!
"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."
