There is good news for HBO lovers. The streaming platform reveals its plans and loads one of the most anticipated reboots.
HBO has announced the cancellation of a great series. The reboot of the series Perry Mason has been sentenced to cancellation after two seasons. There will be no more seasons of Perry Mason. It’s over.
According to information collected by The Hollywood Reporter, Perry Mason will not have a third season on HBO. “We are tremendously grateful for the extraordinary work of Matthew Rhys and the unrivaled cast and crew of ‘Perry Mason’ for their reimagining of such a treasured and storied franchise,” the Warner Bros. Discovery-owned network said in a statement. “While we will not 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.”
The series was a success… but it has not been enough
Starring Matthew Rhys (owl house, vicious bear) as the private investigator turned lawyer, Perry Mason from HBO was created by Rolin Jones and Ron Fitzgerald, with Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey serving as executive producers. The series premiered on June 21, 2020, with a first season of eight episodes until August 9, 2020. Halfway through the first season, the streaming platform renewed Perry Mason for the second. The second season finally premiered earlier this year on March 6, running for eight episodes until April 24.
Making its debut in 2020, the reboot of Perry Mason was greeted with good audience numbers, with HBO’s biggest premiere in two years. The series has also received favorable reviews from critics and audiences. On Rotten Tomatoes, the first season has a “Certified Fresh” rating of 75%, with an audience score of 70%. The second season has fared even better as it currently has an 87% “Certified Fresh” rating and an 81% viewership. In addition, Rhys’ performance as Perry Mason earned him both an Emmy and a Golden Globe.
