In case you missed the news, Serial was a pretty big deal last year, as people around the world delved into the story of the murder of Hae Min Lee. 

It became a bit of a phenomenon, and the highly anticipated second season has been in the works since the last one finished up last year. There was some good news on that front for fans of the show today, as they announced that they are currently working on not one, but two new seasons. 

In an email to newsletter subscribers, Sarah Koenig said "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".

Time to start clearing our autumn schedule.
