“It has been an exciting journey to work with the immensely talented team behind Perry Mason,” said Francesca Orsi, EVP, HBO Programming, Head of HBO Drama Series and Films, previously.
“Viewers have relished being transported back in time to 1930’s Los Angeles each week, and we are thrilled to welcome the show back for a second season.”
The first season was officially described as follows: “1931, Los Angeles. While the rest of the country struggles through the Great Depression, this city is booming! Oil! Olympic Games! Talking Pictures! Evangelical Fervor! And a child kidnapping gone very, very wrong.
“Based on characters created by author Erle Stanley Gardner, drama series Perry Mason… follows the origins of American fiction’s most legendary criminal defense lawyer, Perry Mason. When the case of the decade breaks down his door, Mason’s relentless pursuit of the truth reveals a fractured city and just maybe, a pathway to redemption for himself.”
