The podcast Serial that fans know and love is getting a makeover for its third season. 

It will no longer be a true crime podcast, and won't deal with crime at all. 

The first season of the This American Life spinoff was presented by Sarah Koenig, and she investigated the 1999 murder of Hae Min Lee.

Speaking to Variety, This American Life host and Serial producer Ira Glass, said 'In season two, we tried to get away from true crime. We felt we already did that. Season two was about Bowe Bergdahl, a really different kind of story.

'We were looking at something that had news-and-issues stakes to it, but with the same narrative drive and characters to it. Season three takes on something huge and different with characters and narrative but very different from the first two seasons.'

This format change seems to be similar to the Serial spin-off S Town. It told the story of an Alabama man and the many mysteries of his life. 

Ira Glass hasn't revealed any details about the Serial season three story or when it will premiere.
