Perry Mason Season 2 Updates: HBO has renewed Perry Mason, starring Matthew Rhys, for a second season. The network claimed that the show had performed well, with more than 8 million viewers watching the inaugural episode. “We are thrilled to welcome the show back for a second season,” said Francesca Orsi, executive vice president of HBO Programming. “Viewers have relished being transported back in time to 1930s Los Angeles each week,” she said.
After all, the legendary defence lawyer from Erle Stanley Gardner’s novels has appeared in dozens of reboots across TV, film, and radio, so it’s simple to see why fans adored it. (Of course, this new version is vastly different from the original.) In addition to critical acclaim, the HBO series has received 13 Emmy nominations.
THE CAST FOR SEASON 2 HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED.
Christmas came for Perry Mason fans in November of 2021, after nearly a year of almost no news. According to Deadline, a number of cast members will be joining the ensemble, including Katherine Waterston, who will be a new series regular. Perry’s son, Teddy, will be taught by the actress, who is best known for her roles in the Fantastic Beasts series and Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice.
Hope Davis, Jon Chaffin, Fabrizio Guido, Peter Mendoza, Onohoua Rodriguez, and Jee Young Han are among the new recurrent characters joining the group. Elias Birchard “E.B.” is played by John Lithgow in the show.
Jonathan, a senior attorney who acts as a mentor and father figure to Mason; Chris Chalk as Paul Drake, Mason’s right-hand man and a Black cop dealing with a racially oppressive police department; Juliet Rylance as Della Street, a legal secretary trying to make a name for herself in a man’s world; Tatiana Maslany as Sister Alice McKeegan, the leader of the Radiant Assembly of God; and Shea Whigham as Pete Strickl.
SEASON TWO HAS NOT BEEN CONFIRMED AS OF YET.
Fans have been waiting for confirmation on when season two of Perry Mason will premiere since the first season ended last summer on HBO.
Mason (Matthew Rhys) starts in the first season as a low-rent private investigator who is hired to investigate a highly publicised kidnapping while still tormented by his World War I experiences and a shattered marriage.
