Great news for fans of HBO Max’s original series ‘Perry Mason’ because the showrunners are currently thinking about expanding the franchise by ‘multiple seasons’. This might sound like a rumor but it is actually real news because the show received impressive ratings. And HBO Max does not shy away from giving popular shows a green light. Which brings us to our next question; when to expect Perry Mason Season 2 premiere? You’ll read about it later in the article!
According to Variety, approximately 1.7 million people streamed the show. These numbers grew to 8 million until the show got renewed! These viewership numbers were the highest for any latest series (which got released at that time). The first season only had 8 episodes, despite this the story was quite well developed. And from where we are standing right now the future for Perry Mason seems bright. There is no doubt that the original book series also deserves the credit for its popularity.
To clear the air, we are glad to inform the fans because HBO Max has approved the request for Season 2!

Perry Mason Season 2 Release Date
The renewal news regarding Perry Mason came on 22nd June 2022. However we do not have a confirmed release date for Perry Mason so far. But expect Perry Mason Season 2 to premiere somewhere in 2023. As these are just our speculations we would suggest you to not rely on this prediction.
Perry Mason Season 2 Plot
According to the showrunners, Season 2 will pick up from where things ended in the finale. But expect something unique in the upcoming installment. The Dodson trial is not reopening, the story will most likely continue after this.
We are still running low on the plot details of the second season. So, what you’ll read next is based on theories. As we saw in the first season, Perry now has a proper firm of his own. But does this mean that things will get stable for him in the future? Will we get to see the trio of Della Street, Perry Mason and detective Paul Drake in the upcoming season? Well, that is for Season 2 to reveal.
There will be another major case on which Perry Mason will focus on. The details of this case are discrete for now. But in case you are interested, you can give the original books a read. They’ll clear a lot of confusion in your head.
There is no official trailer or any sort of footage from Perry Mason Season 2 so far. And who knows when we’ll get it. So, all that we can do for now is wait patiently.
In case you still haven’t streamed Perry Mason consider this a sign to stream it because the show will blow your mind! It focuses on the story of a defense lawyer living in the early 1900s. It shows both the personal and professional lives of the lawyer and how everyone at that time was coping with the aftermath of The Great Depression. There are 8 episodes in total and you can easily binge-watch them in 2 days!
So, that was all about the potential Season 2. For more updates stay tuned!
