Serial ended with Sarah Koenig to draw a conclusion based on the evidence she presented in the case of Adnan Syed. But developments have kept the case going off the air. All of the very specific court rulings and interviews with people who wouldn’t talk to Koenig seemed to be enough for another podcast altogether. So it’s fitting that another audio team is going to take up the case.
The new podcast, titled “Undisclosed: The State v. Adnan Syed,” is set to premiere on April 13, according to its website. The website says the podcast will expose a “trove of undisclosed information,” and look at the case from an “investigatory perspective rather than a narrative one.” It’s based on work by attorneys Susan Simpson and Colin Miller, and is sponsored by the Adnan Syed Legal Trust.
The podcast comes as Maryland judges consider Syed’s appeal of his conviction in connection with the murder of Hae-Min Lee. Syed’s defense team argues that his initial lawyer, Christina Gutierrez, failed to pursue information about an alibi witness or a possible plea deal that could have helped his case.
