The wait is finally over for fans of the wildly popular podcast “Serial.”

On Thursday, September 20th two new episodes will drop, with producers confirming the new season takes place in Cleveland.

Produced by “This American Life” and Chicago Public Media, previous episodes have reportedly been downloaded more than 340 million times.

The first season turned the conviction of Adnan Sayed, accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend, into a national phenomenon and led to a new trial. The second season looked at Bowe Bergdahl, the soldier who went missing in Afghanistan.

Now, two years later, “Serial” is back with a close look at the criminal justice system.

Host Sarah Koenig said they chose ordinary cases and picked Cleveland because of their freedom to openly record. Cleveland.com noted Koenig first here recording the trial of Douglas Shine, accused of murder at a barbershop in late 2016.
