What is the Perry Mason season 2 release date? Perry Mason was the latest in a long line of hit HBO series to intrigue and excite its audiences. Here, we dive into the many mysteries that this show had to offer and get you all the answers you need.

The TV series, Perry Mason, first aired in June 2020. Just a month after the premiere, HBO announced the thriller series had been renewed for a second season. The show is set in 1930s America, with the country recovering from the Great Depression. The titular character, played by Matthew Rhys, is a down-and-out private investigator, who has personal demons to battle and a huge kidnapping case to solve.

The series was unfortunately canceled in June 2023, but from the Perry Mason season 2 release date, cast, plot, and more here is everything about its second season.

Perry Mason season 2 cast

Matthew Rhys returned as the titular character in Perry Mason season 2. Bet you didn’t expect that, did you?

Alongside him, Juliet Rylance and Chris Chalk reprise their roles as Della Street and Paul Drake, respectively. This makes sense, seeing as the duo just helped Mason launch his law firm, Mason and Associates.

Shea Wigham is in season 2 again, with his character Pete Strickland hoping to assist Perry in any way he can.

Unfortunately, one name that didn’t return is Tatiana Maslany. The actor, who played Sister Alice in season 1, has had to pull out of the show due to scheduling conflicts. We suspect this had something to do with the Marvel series She-Hulk.

Perry Mason season 2 cast list:

  • Matthew Rhys as Perry Mason
  • Juliet Rylance as Della Street
  • Chris Chalk as Paul Drake
  • Shea Whigham as Pete Strickland
  • Justin Kirk as Hamilton Burger
  • Diarra Kilpatrick as Clara Drake
