'Serial' Will Now Release Episodes Every Other Week

The next podcast won’t be available until January 21.


Serial, the addicting podcast from journalist Sarah Koenig that gets media chatter like a network show just dropped a schedule change that should slightly frustrate — but also please — its fans:

“I have news: We are changing the schedule, so that now, new episodes of Season Two will come out every other week, instead of once a week. I know! I know…it’s maybe not what you wanted to hear. But, there’s a good and exciting reason, which is that we’re adding more material. This story goes in so many directions, and as we’re reporting it we’re getting access to more of the key people close to Bergdahl’s case, and to more information than we initially thought we would. Which is great. And which means we’re going to be adding at least one extra episode to the series. To do that—or at least to do it right—will take some time. Hence the change.
So to be clear: The next episode of Serial will come out on Thursday, Jan. 21st. During in-between weeks, we’ll have new posts and graphics on our website. We’ll keep you updated on all of that via our social media accounts.
And thank you, everyone, for listening to the show. Your response has been terrifically encouraging.”
