The Trailer Has Dropped For HBO’s Documentary Series On Adnan Syed From “Serial”

Two decades after Hae Min Lee's murder, the Baltimore high school student's horrific plight continues to dominate the true crime landscape. After featuring on the first season of Sarah Koenig's grimly addictive podcast Serial, it's now forming the basis for a new documentary series, The Case Against Adnan Syed. The four-part HBO series will pick up where everyone's 2014 obsession left off with the trailer promising to reveal 'a new chapter' which you can watch RIGHT NOW!

“Serial” may just have wrapped its third season, but the story of season 1’s Adnan Syed is still unfolding.

Fourteen years after he was convicted of the 1999 murder of Hae Min Lee, “Serial advocated for his innocence. The show’s work spurred action that resulted in a new trial for the 38-year-old, who is currently serving a life sentence. To know exactly what went down after the podcast’s first season, though, we’ll have to turn to HBO. 

‘The Case Against Adnan Syed’, a four-part docuseries directed by Amy Berg, is slated to debut on the network later this year. In addition to the evidence presented by “Serial“, the first teaser trailer for the series promises “a piece of evidence that nobody even realized existed for all these years,” and a current look at Syed and his legal struggles.

Not everyone believes in Syed’s innocence. Plenty of fans were not convinced by Serial‘s evidence, and, in the ‘The Case Against Adnan Syed’, Syed himself admits things appear dicey.

“I know there are things that don’t look good for me,” he says on the phone in the teaser.

Is ‘The Case Against Adnan Syed’ the next step towards his freedom?
