A new trailer for Perry Mason Season 2 depicts the titular defense attorney engaged in his most significant court case to date.

Two poor Mexicans are falsely accused of committing a crime that Mason does not believe they did in the trailer for the upcoming season. His team appears to have uncovered a criminal scheme in which important Los Angeles businesses may be involved.

Perry Mason Season 2 Details

In the most recent trailer for Perry Mason Season 2 on HBO, Mason is recruited for one of the most important cases of his career, only to quickly find himself in over his head.

Mason will once again find himself accidentally in the midst of a media storm, this time as the defender of two individuals who are already condemned by public opinion. The identity of the alleged victim has not yet been disclosed. There is a possibility that an oil tycoon is engaged in the plot, as the HBO original show's trailer prominently features an oil field.

Perry Mason Season 2 Expectations

Matthew Rhys stars as Mason in the 1930s-set historical drama based on the mystery-crime books by Erle Stanley Gardner. In Season 1, the PTSD-afflicted private investigator was recruited by EB Jonathan (John Lithgow) to investigate the case of Charlie Dodson, a kidnapped and murdered infant.

Although the murder trial will be the focal point of Perry Mason Season 2, Mason's unsolved personal troubles will take precedence. The teaser for the HBO original depicts the lawyer attempting to develop a new romantic relationship with Ginny Aimes (Katherine Waterston) as he attempts to reconnect with his son.


In the upcoming season, Mason's emotional conflicts appear to be tense, and the difficult court case will not help him.

Mason faces overwhelming obstacles, but he has a skilled crew by his side. Della Street (Juliet Rylance) and Paul Drake (Chris Chalk) assumed their legendary roles by Mason's side at the conclusion of Season 1.
