Sarah Koenig might just get that ending she was hoping for!

Fans who were woefully disappointed by hit podcast Serial’s lackluster season 1 finale can rejoice.

Adnan Syed will finally get a new trial for the murder of Hae Min Lee. News broke on Twitter on Thursday that the man at the center of the hit podcast would finally get a chance at freedom.

Die-hard fans can also comb through the court document granting the new trial.

Syed was convicted in 2000 of killing his ex-girlfriend, a Woodlawn High School classmate, and burying her body in Baltimore's Leakin Park. He’s been serving a life sentence ever since.

You can breathe easy now, Sarah Koenig. You might just have that big denouement your fans were hoping for.
