Serial’s Adnan Syed Officially Gets New Trial

Adnan Syed, via ABC screengrabBig news for fans of the wildly popular first season of Serial! (Sorry to all five fans of the second season; this ain’t for you.)

Incarcerated protagonist Adnan Syed got some big wins and disappointments after his story went viral last year, but this looks to be one of the biggest wins of all.

His appeal for a new trial was granted.

There will be more details at a press conference later today but for now, anyone who was rooting for the young man who was locked up for the murder of his high school girlfriend because he claims not to remember where he was when she died can celebrate!
