Fans of the popular NPR podcast Serial have good reason to be excited. While it was always known that a second season of the podcast was in the works, we now have official word that there are not one but two new seasons being planned.
The news comes straight from the Serial team themselves, with series creator Sarah Koenig explaining that the upcoming seasons, while different from the first, will be “no less interesting.” As it stands now, it remains to be seen what topics Koenig and her team will be exploring.
“We are hard at work reporting not one, but two distinct new stories,” Koenig said in an email blast. “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.”
Even better, Serial fans won’t have to wait long to wrap their ears around what is likely to be yet another addicting podcast series. Season two is slated to launch this fall while season three is being planned for next spring.
