The series will explore the 1999 disappearance and murder of 18-year-old Baltimore County high school student Hae Min Lee, and the subsequent conviction of her ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed.

Since Serial aired, the show's producers have gone on to make a second series focusing on a separate story involving the USA military and a separate single-story podcast called S-Town.

The series has been in production since 2015, but there is no date now set for its release.

The Case Against Adnan Syed (4×60') is from Academy Award-nominated director Amy Berg (Deliver Us From Evil, West of Memphis).

Their latest project, as Slate reports, is The Case Against Adnan Syed, a new documentary exploring the same crime investigated in the first season of the massively popular true-crime podcast Serial.

The new series will reportedly include "new discoveries, as well as groundbreaking revelations that challenge the state's case".

On Wednesday, HBO and Sky announced the docuseries The Case Against Adnan Syed - a reexamination of a now well-known murder case in Baltimore, Maryland.

They will also examine how the "rush to justice" and Syed's conviction in 2000 "raised more questions than answers about what happened to Hae Min Lee".

In 2016, Judge Martin P. Welch granted Syed a new trial, after it was ruled he had received ineffective counsel from his lawyer, Cristina Gutierrez.

Viewers will hear accounts from Adnan Syed, the defence team, the Syed family, friends and teachers of Hae Min Lee, and members of Baltimore City law enforcement. Nick Cave will provide original music and it will be exec produced by Khan, Conrad, Eric Fellner, Tim Bevan and Andrew Stearn.

HBO has not yet announced a release date for the series.
