Is HBO’s Perry Mason Returning for Season 2?

The hit American legal drama Perry Mason has taken the streaming world by storm even on its second return. Over 8 million people have watched the 8 episode debut to date. It has become the channel’s most-watched series premiere in 2 years.

The revival of the 70s American TV soap is a prequel of sorts to  Perry Mason’s character. The 8-episode first season follows a single crime but manages to construct a dense web of dangerous and witty plotline.

No wonder the series has already been renewed for a second season. The producers were thrilled to come back with another season after the huge success of the first.

The official Twitter account of the series said: “Justice never rests. Perry Mason has been renewed for Season 2.” 

When is Perry Mason season 2 coming out?

While the series may have been renewed for a second season, fans could use some buckling up for the time being. Especially since there has been no announcement made for the release of the upcoming season. 

As expected, the release will entirely depend on how soon the cast and crew can get back to work which has been paused due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

What will happen in Perry Mason Season 2?

The main lead Perry Mason is a criminal defense lawyer fights for the most vulnerable of clients and has them acquitted just in the slick of time.

The characters were originally created by Erle Stanley Gardner. The author has written 80 novels of the same series across three decades. So there are all kinds of twists and turns plausible for season 2.

Perry Mason Season 2 Cast

Matthew Rhys stars as the lead titular role in the series.

While no guesses can be made for the cast of the series yet, some of the supporting characters such as his partner E.B. Jonathon (John Lithgow), attorney Maynard Barnes (Stephen Root), Mason’s right-hand man Paul Drake (Chris Chalk), a black cop in a racially oppressive Police Department and Della Street (Juliet Rylance) as the legal secretary could return.

About Perry Mason (2020)

Long before Perry Mason became the legendary lawyer that he was, he was a PTSD-ridden war vet struggling to find his place in the world. His first test as a lawyer was the gruesome killing of a child who was kidnapped and returned with his eyes sewn open. The mother, Emily Dodson (Gayle Rankin), is charged with the crime, in part because had an affair with an accused and in part due to the good old nasty Depression-era sexism.

Perry Mason is an American period drama television series based on the character of the same name created by Erle Stanley Gardner. It focuses on the origin story of famed defense lawyer Perry Mason. The series was developed and written by Rolin Jones and Ron Fitzgerald and stars Matthew Rhys in the title role. In July 2020, HBO renewed the series for a second season.
