Perry Mason (2020)

1932, Los Angeles. While the rest of the country recovers from the Great Depression, this city is booming! Oil! Olympic Games! Talking Pictures! Evangelical Fervor! And a child kidnapping gone very, very wrong! Based on characters created by Erle Stanley Gardner, this limited series follows the origins of American Fiction's most legendary criminal defense lawyer, Perry Mason. When the case of the decade breaks down his door, Mason's relentless pursuit of the truth reveals a fractured city and just maybe, a pathway to redemption for himself.

I agree. I thought the characters were great and the attempt to capture LA in the depression was very well done. Gonna miss this one.

'Perry Mason' Canceled By HBO After 2 Seasons

Perry Mason has tried his last case — at least for now. HBO has opted not to renew the prequel to the classic series, starring Matthew Rhys and executive produced by Team Downey's Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey, for a third season. The news comes a month and a half after the Season 2 finale debuted April 24.

“We are tremendously grateful for the remarkable work of Matthew Rhys and the unrivaled cast and crew of Perry Mason for their reimagining of such a treasured and storied franchise,” HBO said in a statement to Deadline. “While we won't be moving forward with another season of the series, we are excited to continue working with the brilliant creatives at Team Downey on future projects.”

Speaking ahead of the Season 2 finale, Downey Jr. addressed the prospect for a third season. “I mean wouldn't that be nice?,” he told Deadline. “I think that Matthew and all the other people populating it in front of the screen, all our people behind the scenes, have built this incredible world that I know we could continue to tell really interesting stories about. We would be lying if we didn't say we've certainly been talking to Michael a ton about a third season, but our fate rests in the hands of others.”

HBO's head of drama Francesca Orsi a couple of weeks ago spoke to Deadline about the ongoing “viewership relative to budget” review of several sophomore series, including Perry Mason.

“Each show has a job to do, given the price tag that we give to it, and there's a viewership. component, and there's a critical response element to it and of course, the buzz nature of a show. It's those elements that we are always keeping in mind and discussing relative to whether or not a show will continue,” she said. “That factors in for Perry Mason, for Winning Time, for instance, for Gilded Age, so we have to play everything out and see how well they do.”

Perry Mason remains an awards contender for HBO this year. Its first season earned four Emmy nominations, including Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Rhys.

Watched 1x8. Pretty good end for season 1, looking forward to season 2.

1x7 was another quality episode!

Did you notice how smart they were regarding filming street scenes? They zoomed close enough to bigger buildings so that no modern buildings would be visible, and also decided not to show busy main roads, so they didn't have to put huge numbers of old vehicles there (not even mentioning issues with modern signage and traffic lights). :)

This is really well done both in front of the camera and in the edits. I know that his is on a short line (8 episodes) but I am hoping for more goodness from this.

Fingers crossed..


:)

And @ graybags: yes, the bar exam was easier to pass back then for sure (same as other exams that have become way harder over time). I've enjoyed how that process was displayed, including the exact quality of his performance in front of a judge later on. :)

I get it is a reboot, sorta. I liked the original series because it was entertaining and Mason always won through some legal wizardy or some last second discovery.. Nothing about the origins of the characters. These characters are nothing like the original characters but then 50s-60s TV was really different story telling. Characters were not really allowed to be as flawed and broken as this group.

So far (4th S1E4) I am pretty hooked. Rhys is a good choice but I have to say it wasn't working at first. The girl who plays Della seems to carry the show a lot which also works. The other characters like Stephen Root, John Lithgow, Lili Taylor, Chris Chalk, Lupe Falcon, and Robert Patrick are all really good.

Honestly, I was worried that this would be just a bucket of disappointment like so many other reboots. This is really well done both in front of the camera and in the edits. I know that his is on a short line (8 episodes) but I am hoping for more goodness from this.

Fingers crossed..


I've not read any of the books, so I don't know if he started off as a P.I. before he became a lawyer, but I think this show is definitely a keeper. Slow at first, but I'm a fan now.

One thing I think was a bit silly was how they showed him go from P.I to lawyer in about 2 minutes! The bar exam is not an easy thing to pass, and I don't think there's a fast-track way of studying for it, passing it and then being able to actually represent people in a trial. Maybe there was back then?
