PHILIPPINES, 30 JULY 2020 – HBO’s drama series Perry Mason has been renewed for a second season. Starring Emmy® winner Matthew Rhys, the executive producers of the series include Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey. The penultimate episode of Perry Mason Season 1 debuts same time as the U.S. next Monday, 3 August at 9am exclusively on HBO, with a same day encore at 10pm on HBO. The season finale premieres the following Monday on 10 August at 9am. Catch up on previous episodes anytime, anywhere on HBO GO.

Based on characters created by author Erle Stanley Gardner, the drama series follows the origins of American fiction’s most legendary criminal defense lawyer, Perry Mason in 1931, Los Angeles. 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.


Episodic synopsis of the final two episodes of Perry Mason Season 1:

Episode 7: “Chapter Seven”

Debut date: Monday, 3 August at 9am exclusively on HBO GO and HBO

Hoping to expose the hidden link between the Radiant Assembly’s staggering debt and Charlie’s ransom, Mason (Matthew Rhys) puts Herman Baggerly (Robert Patrick) on the stand. Sister Alice (Tatiana Maslany) faces mounting pressure from the church elders about her promises for a “resurrection.” Strickland loses track of a key witness, while Drake’s (Chris Chalk) detective work opens a new avenue in the case. Written by Howard Korder; directed by Tim Van Patten.

Episode 8: “Chapter Eight” (Season Finale)

Debut date: Monday, 10 August at 9am exclusively on HBO GO and HBO

After the team receives some unvarnished critique from Hamilton Burger (Justin Kirk), Della (Juliet Rylance) presents an increasingly stubborn Mason (Matthew Rhys) with her case for putting Emily (Gayle Rankin) on the stand. As the sensational trial winds to a close, Mason, Strickland (Shea Whigham), Della, and Drake (Chris Chalk) attempt to tie up loose ends – and set the stage for their futures. Written by Rolin Jones & Ron Fitzgerald & Kevin J. Hynes; directed by Tim Van Pattergüven.

Jonathan’s creative and driven legal secretary; Tatiana Maslany as Sister Alice McKeegan, the leader of the Radiant Assembly of God, preaching to a hungry congregation and a radio audience across the country; Chris Chalk as Paul Drake, a beat cop with a knack for detective work; and Shea Whigham as Pete Strickland, who is hired by Mason as an extra set of eyes on his various investigations.
