Perry Mason Star Matthew Rhys Previews Season 2

Season 2 of Perry Mason is coming soon and Matthew Rhys is already gearing up. The star talked to Deadline about the next bunch of episodes. HBO Max renewed the series in the summer of 2020. A lot of fans were surprised by the reboot. But, when the premiere episode manages to snare eight million viewers, it’s hard to argue with those kinds of numbers. There’s clearly a niche here and the creative team knows it. When asked about the upcoming filming, Rhys said, “That’s an ever-moving set of goalposts. It’s been moving steadily like an iceberg for some time. And I think we’re just basically looking at winter now.” So, buckle up, there’s more intrigue coming down the pipe this year. And that will be a formative time as the series now has Perry Mason in a spot more recognizable to longtime fans of the series.

He dialed back to an even earlier era for the latest role to put him into Emmy contention, as the titular character of the reimagined Perry Mason. The HBO series finds Mason in Depression-era Los Angeles, working unsavory cases as a private eye, well before achieving status as a crackerjack defense attorney. The show earned stellar ratings, prompting HBO to order a second season. As Rhys looks forward to resuming production, he discusses Mason, speaking Welsh to his son, and sprouting a lush beard.
