The popular podcast Serial is heading back to court, this time in Cleveland.

Season three, hosted again by Sarah Koenig, explores the criminal court system in Cleveland. She follows criminal cases by receiving permission to record inside courtrooms, judges' chambers and attorneys' offices to provide listeners an in-depth look at court cases.

The trailer for the new season was just released ahead of its premiere on Sept. 20. From weed possession to more serious crimes, the podcast tells the stories of the people inside the walls of the courtroom.

For this season, Koenig paired up with reporter Emmanuel Dzotsi from This American Life.

Serial has won many awards including Scripps Howard, Edward R. Murrow and the first-ever Peabody awarded to a podcast.
