With the breakout success of the "Serial" podcast's first season, several have wondered about a followup season.

Turns out that Bronx Science alumnus Mark Boal ('91), who won two Academy Awards for The Hurt Locker (2009), is producing the second season of Serial via his company "Page One," in conjunction with the Serial and This American Life teams.

The second season of Serial will cover the mystery behind Bowe Bergdahl, the Army sergeant captured by the Taliban and held prisoner for five years after inexplicably leaving his base in Afghanistan.  It will be followed by a movie to be directed by Kathryn Bigelow, who also directed The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty.
