Part 4: "Time Is the Killer"

Debut date: SUNDAY, MARCH 31 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT)

Despite being granted a new trial, Adnan Syed and his attorneys contend with the State's repeated appeals, while a competitive primary race for Baltimore City State's Attorney has the potential to affect the case's future. Private investigators grapple with outstanding questions as they re-analyze the forensic evidence surrounding Hae Min Lee's death and Syed faces a major decision as his 20th year in prison approaches. On March 8, 2019, the Court of Appeals issues a new ruling to reverse both lower court decisions and deny him a new trial.

DESCRIPTION:
(from HBO's press release, February 2019) The 1999 murder of 18-year-old Baltimore County high school student Hae Min Lee, and the subsequent conviction of her ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, were brought to global attention in 2014 by the hugely popular "Serial" podcast. But there is more to the story. THE CASE AGAINST ADNAN SYED reinvestigates the case behind the podcast, from the genesis of their high school relationship to the original police investigation and trial, and moves into the current day as Syed faces the prospect of a new trial after almost 20 years in jail. Directed by Amy Berg ("West of Memphis," the Oscar(R)-nominated "Deliver Us from Evil"), this absorbing four-part documentary series debuts SUNDAY, MARCH 10 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. The show will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners' streaming platforms. In production since 2015, THE CASE AGAINST ADNAN SYED reviews the events leading up to Hae Min Lee's disappearance, from high school romance, forbidden love and cultural conflict, to the aftermath of her disappearance, the original police investigation and the present day, as Syed awaits the outcome of a lengthy appeals process.
