New ‘The Case Against Adnan Syed’ Trailer Re-Opens the Infamous Investigation

the-case-against-adnan-syed-sliceIt’s been five years since season 1 of the Serialpodcast miraculously gave everyone on the internet their criminology degrees all at the same time, but the conversation still burns around the real-life murder of high-school student Hae Min Lee and the ensuing conviction of her ex-boyfriend Adnan Syed. A new four-part HBO documentary from Oscar-nominee Amy BergThe Case Against Adnan Syed, is looking to explore the investigation once again, and a new trailer gives a glimpse of evidence, testimonials, and interviews that weren’t featured in the original podcast.

I’m extremely conflicted about this whole thing, folks! If this is, in fact, an illuminating look into the case that possibly brings about some real-world change—positive or negative—for Adnan Syed, okay. But it’s also giving me heebie-jeebie flashbacks to 2014, when bars were throwing cute, themed listening happy hours for a podcast episode about the actual murder of an 18-year-old-girl. I just relate pretty hard to the talking head in the trailer who says, “This is an interesting case but it’s people’s lives.”

Draw your own conclusions and watch the trailer below. The Case Against Adnan Syed debuts on Sunday, March 10.
