Hello Everyone!

Thanks to all of you who downloaded Serial: Season One and spread the word about the show to family and friends. We've had 80 million downloads, all over the world. In fact, only two places didn’t download Serial: Eritrea and North Korea. We’re kind of stunned, and so grateful for all your support.
And another thank you to everyone who submitted an idea for Season Two. We've carefully reviewed more than 1,500 submissions and are excited to announce that we've selected our next story. We don’t have a definitive launch date but we’re hard at work on production and hope we can bring it to you by this fall. Please stay tuned for more announcements about Season Two and other Serial events.
