Perry Mason renewed for a second series

We’ve been enjoying HBO’s Perry Mason origin series.

Loosely based on Erle Stanley Gardner’s novels, this series is quite unlike the famous Raymond Burr incarnation of the 1950s version – based in Depression-era Los Angeles, Mason (Matthew Rhys) starts as a down-at-heel private investigator tasked with looking into the brutal kidnap and murder of a baby boy.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series has been renewed for a second run by the cable network.

“It has been an exciting journey to work with the immensely talented team behind Perry Mason,” HBO programming executive VP Francesca Orsi was quoted as saying. “Viewers have relished being transported back in time to 1930s Los Angeles each week, and we are thrilled to welcome the show back for a second season.”
