There is excellent news for all the fans of the new Perry Mason series. Yes, HBO is all set to come with the second installation of Perry Mason in the coming year. The first season of Perry Mason had aired on 21 June 2020, and on the debut of the series, it achieved a lot of fan base due to its engaging storyline. This American period drama is based on the characters created by Erle Stanley Gardner.
The original series lasted nearly a decade, and there have been dozens of reboots since then. Perry Mason has been resurrected on television, cinema, and radio since the original novel was released in 1933. In the 1930s, Warner Bros. filmed six Perry Mason pictures in parallel with the books. Warren Williams, a well-known Broadway and cinema actor, appeared in four of the films.
The most well-known Perry Mason was the CBS series of the same name, which aired from 1957 to 1966 and starred Raymond Burr as Perry Mason and Barbara Hale as his assistant Della Street. Another series, The New Perry Mason, ran in 1973 and starred Monte Markham, but it was discontinued halfway through the season.
The remaining four films resumed without Mason, who was characterized as “out of town.” Finally, from 1943 until 1955, the Perry Mason persona and themes were adapted for radio as a 15-minute daily crime series on CBS Radio. Clearly, every generation finds a way to resurrect this popular character.
