For those who were consumed with this story, HBO and Sky said the series will include "ground-breaking revelations that challenge the state's case".

Sky and HBO have previously partnered on successful true crime docs including The Jinx and Tales of the Grim Sleeper.

NBCUniversal International Studios will distribute The Case Against Adnan Syed internationally. On March 29, 2018, the Court of Special Appeals also ruled to vacate Syed's conviction and granted him a retrial 18 years after first being convicted. The series also includes "exclusive access to Adnan Syed, his family and his lawyers", as Berg "has been closely following their efforts to obtain justice, with the outcome still to be determined - and possibly shaped by the investigation pursued within the series itself". Nick Cave will provide original music and it will be exec produced by Khan, Conrad, Eric Fellner, Tim Bevan and Andrew Stearn.

At this point, no specific premiere date for the series has been confirmed.
