A quick recap of ‘Perry Mason’ Season 1
In season 1 of the show, we were shown that fraudulently accused Emily Dodson pleaded not guilty. However, the case was also declared an inconclusive trial, after it was revealed that Pete had actually bought a member of the jury to give the verdict of non-guilty.
On the other hand, Pete left to work for Hamilton Burger. Perry, along with Della Street, decided to start his own firm with Paul Drake joining in as the investigator, which also sets the premises for season 2.
When can we expect the release of season 2?
After HBO’s vice-president Francesca Orsi’s announcement, confirming the renewal of season 2, it has been a little difficult for fans to keep their calm. She said,
“It has been an exciting journey to work with the immensely talented team behind Perry Mason”.
“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.”
But now comes the question, “When will season 2 air?” Well, there has not been an official release date announcement yet. And, keeping in mind the present circumstances, we can only assume that the possible release of the new season might be delayed from the original schedule. We can only keep our fingers crossed and hope for it to release as soon as possible.
Who can we expect to see in season 2 of ‘Perry Mason’?
Honestly, not much can be predicted about who will return for season 2, but the one actor we can be sure of is Matthew Rhys. This being established, chances of John Lithgow returning to the show are highly unlikely. According to the website “Radio Times”, after the death of his character, Elias Birchard, the possibility of him returning are quite sceptical.
“Though it’s possible the character could feature in flashbacks – a device employed in the first season to explore Perry’s wartime past.”
Talking about the return of Tatiana Maslany’s Sister Alice, Maslany, in an interview with “Collider”, said,
“I think it’s the first chapter. I think she’s finally working to emancipate herself from all of the things that have defined her and controlled her up until this point. I feel like Alice’s trajectory kind of goes, she sort of becomes distilled in a way. She’s re-imagined by the end of it, similarly to Perry in a very different place, devoid of all the things she knew to be true. All of the markers of her identity, her mother, the church, her faith, her connection to Emily, all of it is stripped away. And she’s in a way, starting again”.
Well, it seems like season 2 will bring a lot of similar faces along with it. We can’t wait for the second season! What are your possible predictions about the plotline of season 2? Let us know in the comments below.
