Serial’s second season may have started, but all anyone can talk about is how it doesn't hold a candle to the greatness of the first season. That is, when they're not talking about all the recent developments in Adnan's case.

In case you don't know:

Last January, a court said they would consider Adnan’s appeal. In February, he won his motion to appeal. In May, Adnan was granted a chance at a shorter sentence. In August, Adnan’s lawyer submitted new evidence that could overturn his conviction. And in November, a judge ordered for Adnan Syed’s case to be officially re-opened.

Fast forward to present day and we now know when the rehearing will occur -- February 3-5, 2016. Yes, as in next week!! The rehearing will focus on the testimony of Asia McClain, who said she was with Adnan at the time of Hae Min Lee's murder, as well as new cell phone tower evidence.

There’s surely more to come out of all of this so watch this space. Until then, check out all of our Serial coverage (there’s a lot).
