News of the release date is yet to be revealed by the network, but do stay tuned for any news as we will keep you updated.
Season 1 recap:
The first season of 'Perry Mason' served as the origin story. We saw how Mason worked with a senior lawyer in Los Angeles called E.B. as a detective and the case that led to him giving the bar exam was that of the death of baby Charlie Dodson. This case hooked Mason unlike any before and he couldn't stand by as an innocent woman was being charged with conspiracy to murder because she had an affair with a man who turned out to be one of the kidnappers of her son Charlie. While she was naive and blind to the man's intentions, does that make her guilty of something like conspiracy to murder? Mason decides to fight this and the finale episode will see if he manages to free Emily or not.
Keeping with the finale episode, we expect Mason to introduce us to an all-new case in the upcoming season. The details will be updated as soon as we learn about the same. However, what we can definitely bank on is for Della Street to stay by Mason's side.
Matthew Rhys as Perry Mason
Matthew Rhys is expected to reprise his role as Perry Mason in the show. Only, this time around, he will be a criminal defense lawyer and not a private detective for hire.
Juliet Rylance as Della Street
Actor Juliet Rylance plays the role of Mason's law secretary Della Street, who had previously worked with E.B. in the show. She is also one of the characters originally featured in the books. In the first of the many 'Perry Mason' books, Della is described as a woman who came from a well-to-do family, and in keeping with this, the show portrays her as a runaway from a well-off family who preferred freedom over wealth. She is also portrayed as a character belonging to the LGBTQIA+ community.
Since the renewal of the show was announced recently, there is no update regarding the trailer. However, stay tuned and we will keep you posted on the latest updates regarding the show.
