‘Serial’ Seasons 2 and 3 Get Premiere Dates

Sarah Koenig’s acclaimed “Serial” podcast won’t return for a second season until fall, but a third season is already in the works, premiering next spring.

Koenig, the Peabody Award-winning show’s host and executive producer, announced the premiere dates in an email newsletter to subscribers on Wednesday. Although she revealed that the upcoming seasons are very different, “but no less interesting,” from season one, Koenig didn’t divulge what issues will be explored.

“We are hard at work reporting not one, but two distinct new stories. This means we’re planning on a third season of ‘Serial,’” Koenig wrote. “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.”

The 12-episode first season of “Serial” — a spinoff of the radio program “This American Life” — investigated the 1999 murder of Hae Min Lee, an 18-year-old student at Baltimore’s Woodlawn High School. Her ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, was charged with her murder and given life in prison.
