HBO has released a teaser trailer for its period drama series Perry Mason, based on the characters created by Erle Stanley Gardner.
Set during the early 1930s, when the Great Depression wreaked havoc on the US, the historical drama revolves around the fan-favorite detective Perry Mason as he navigates the legal system of Los Angeles, dealing with personal trauma and recovering from his time in the Great War.
According to the official synopsos, the new season will pick up months after the Dodson case has come to an end, jumping to the year 1933, as the scion of a powerful oil family is brutally murdered. Mason, Della and Paul will find themselves “at the center of a case that will uncover conspiracies beyond their imagination”, the synopsis also reveals.
The trailer sees Della and Paul nudging Perry to uncover another mystery as the former tells him “Guilty or not, everyone deserves a defense”.
The new season brings back Matthew Rhys, Chris Chalk, Juliet Rylance, Eric Lange, Shea Whigham, Justin Kirk, Katherine Waterston, Diarra Kilpatrick, Hope Davis. Rounding off the cast is Fabrizio Guido, Peter Mendoza, Mark O’Brien, Paul Raci, Jen Tullock, Jon Chaffin, along with Onahoua Rodriguez, Jee Young Han, Sean Astin, Tommy Dewey, and Wallace Langham.
The song used in the trailer is “No Halo” by Kevin Morby.
Perry Mason season 2 will debut next spring, on March 6, 2023 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max.
