“When the DA goes to the city’s Hoovervilles to pinpoint the most obvious of suspects, Perry, Della, and Paul find themselves at the center of a case that will uncover far reaching conspiracies and force them to reckon with what it truly means to be guilty.”
Matthew Rhys returns to headline the second season.

By the time the series returns, it will have been off the air for two and a half years.
It was initially billed as a miniseries, but strong numbers led to HBO picking up an additional season.
“It has been an exciting journey to work with the immensely talented team behind PERRY MASON,” HBO’s Francesca Orsi said when the show got a second season.
“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.”
Executive producers include Jack Amiel, Michael Begler, Amanda Burrell, Robert Downey Jr., Susan Downey, Joe Horacek, Matthew Rhys, and Tim Van Patten.
