Dear readers and fans of Perry Mason please take a seat because the news which I am about to give will be happily shocking for you all. Perry Mason is back with a bang! Yes, that’s right it has renewed itself for a brand new Season 2 on HBO starring our favorite Matthew Rhys. So why don’t we have a quick recap?
We all know that 2020 had affected all of us in a terrible manner and the most damage was done to the entertainment industry but on 21st June 2020 came in a hit series named Perry Mason which had rapid popularity and a growing fan base all because of the plot of the series. This series had adopted its storyline from a CBS story of the same name.
The story begins In 1932 in Los Angeles, with Matthew Rhys enacting as Perry Mason, a person who has gone through a lot of trauma in his past life by the continuous visions from the Great war. He also wrestles and has a drinking problem which was due to his failed marriage. But then soon his life takes a turn as he gets his hands on an intriguing case. This case was about the death of a young kid named Charlie Dodson. As he gets busy solving the crime his mind gets off his troubled past which as a result turns the tables around for him. So by the end of the series we all witness him as not only a person solving the crime but also as a lawyer, just like in the original show where the actor Raymond Burr fights against crime and is also the one to defend the innocent and accused. The series amongst all the thrill and action also had made the audience happy and were glad about the fact that Perry Mason had at last succeeded in his life, as he launched Mason and Associates along with Della Street and even hired a detective named Paul Drake. Like who wouldn’t want their favorite character to excel and be happy? Even though we all know that a specific actor is excelling in his personal life, we tend to get more attached to its fictional character of the show.
So after so much of a thrill in the story as you all wait for the new season of Perry Mason just to help your curiosity about what will happen in this new season, I would like to spill some spoilers.
Towards the end of season one, Emily Dodson argued not to be guilty but the case was announced to be uncertain because Pete paid off the legal hearer. Well even if we all do know that the primary culprit was Detective Ennis, who had apparently employed a drug-dependent woman to go about as Charlie’s wet medical attendant but despite the fact that the case doesn’t bear a confirmed sentence. Pete leaves to work for Hamilton Berger while it is known that Sister Alice escapes the foundation of the Church and restarts her life. So the audience is left hanging by the season finale as it closes with numerous issues which were never solved and I know how that feels as you are open to a variety of interpretations but you don’t exactly know how things turn out to be.
Spoiler alert! It is said that season 2 may investigate the various legitimate undertakings of Mason and Associates and how Sister Alice adapts to her new life. It is also predicted that maybe the novel will be the origin of the second season’s story or maybe the show’s organization may change and choose to handle another case in each episode of Season 2 unlike season 1 which was all about a single case.
I know there are a lot of maybes as I said earlier it is open to various kinds of interpretations but I just sorted a few of them based on insider information. Although the release date hasn’t been announced by the officials it all depends on when the characters can return back, to begin with, the production. So if they begin the production by June or July of 2021 then we can expect the new season latest by 2022 but with this uncertain situation, the release dates haven’t been finalized. But readers don’t feel disheartened because we know for sure that Perry Mason Season 2 will surely be released.
