With how deep Season 1 got into Adnan's story, and with Season 2 going into completely new territory, does it make sense to put everything on a single "Serial" page? Or should we break it up by season? Maybe have a main "Serial" overview page with a description of the series in general (i.e. who hosts it, how it usually works, common tropes not directly related to any particular season, etc) then have separate pages for the different seasons.

Throwing everything under the same page doesn't feel right to me, since right now everything on the page is about Adnan's story. As Season 2 progresses I'm sure more stuff about Bergdahl will be added but it'll all be mixed in with the Adnan stuff, and presumably by the end the page will be a mish-mash of both. Considering how wildly different they are, this doesn't seem right to me. The only other thing I can think of would be to use folders but I have a feeling that they'd be massive unwieldy folders and not all that helpful.

EDIT - Just noticed someone created a "Season 1" folder already. My point about unwieldiness still stands though.

Would the trope "But for me it was Tuesday" apply to Adnon's version of the day Hei was killed?

In the first podcast, during the interview with Adnon, he says that the reason he can't exactly account for his whereabouts on the day Hei died is because "For me it was just another day." Claiming that he can't exactly recall what he did after he got off school that day but before he went to his practice.

No, the trope is about supervillains who commit atrocities so often they're no longer distinct or memorable. Regardless of whether Adnon killed Hei or not, the events of that day were not unremarkable to Adnon because committing murders were standard weekday fare for him. Plus, this is a Villain/Evil trope, which don't really apply to Real Life.
