HBO has released the teaser trailer for the second season of Perry Mason , arriving in the United States on March 6, 2023.
A small army of new entries will join the protagonist Matthew Rhys in the new episodes, starting with Katherine Waterston ( Alien: Covenant ), in the role of Ginny Aimes, teacher of Perry’s son, Teddy, and incurable optimist even in the midst of the Great Depression.
Joining her are Hope Davis, Jon Chaffin, Fabrizio Guido, Peter Mendoza, Onohoua Rodriguez and Jee Young Han . Here are their characters:
- Hope Davis will play Camilla Nygaard , a businesswoman who takes Della (Juliet Rylance) under her wing. Camilla is a woman of great culture, a lover of fitness and passionate about art.
- Jon Chaffin will play Morris , brother of Clara ( Diarra Kilpatrick , promoted to regular in the new episodes) and brother-in-law of Paul Drake ( Chris Chalk ), a vivacious and energetic man to whom Clara and Paul owe a debt of gratitude because he hosted them under its roof.
- Fabrizio Guido will be Rafael Gallardo , a talented artist who comes from a peasant family. Together with his brother Mateo he is accused of murder and faces the death penalty.
- Peter Mendoza will play Mateo Gallardo , forced, like his brother, to deal with the possibility of a death sentence.
- Onohoua Rodriguez will play Luisa Gallardo , Rafael and Mateo’s aunt. Luisa is determined to save her grandchildren. Fearing that the court of public opinion could derail due process, Luisa seeks the help of a better lawyer than the court-appointed one.
- Jee Young Han will play Marion Kang , a fresh out of secretarial school and Della’s replacement behind the desk. Marion is meticulous and has a few tricks up her sleeve that will impress Perry and Della.
The plot of season 2
Months after the conclusion of the Dodson trial, Perry Mason left the farm and traded his leather jacket for a smart one. It’s the worst year of the Depression, and Perry and Della have shifted the law firm’s focus toward civil rather than criminal cases. Unfortunately, between wills and contracts, there isn’t much work for Paul, who is making arrangements on his behalf. But a seemingly simple case captures the attention of Los Angeles, and Perry’s quest for justice will prove once again that nothing is as it seems.
