Unsociable, without a sense of humor, but with great cordiality, detective Perry Mason decides to take on one major case to find the killer of a little boy.

“Perry Mason ss 2”: release date, announcement
On June 21, 2020, “Perry Mason” TV show premiered. And even though years have passed since the creation of the last film, there were viewers in our time.
The sequel to the detective show “Perry Mason” was officially announced in July 2020. Regardless, Season 2 is slated to launch in early 2022. This is due to the reshuffle of personnel and some technical difficulties about which little is known.
1931, New Years Eve. An unknown man kidnaps a child and demands a ransom from his parents. The money is rather big, but the killer is somehow already aware that the parents will find the necessary finances in due time. By agreeing to meet, the mother and father finally receive their child. But for some unknown reason, wrapped in a blanket.
When the mother unfolds the package, she sees that her child is dead. And not just killed, but also disfigured. His upper eyelids are sewn to his eyebrows with thick black threads. Mother and father become desperate. But having connections, they are trying to find a good detective who can figure out this case and find the criminal. One influential man decides to help them, who introduces unfortunate parents to Perry Mason.
Perry himself is a mid-level detective. He doesn’t really look at morality – he is only interested in profit. In the distant past, he had a wife and a son, but now they live far from him. Even calls are difficult for Perry, because the mother does not always allow talking to their child. This makes Mason even more furious, but the beeps on the other end of the line still continue…
Beginning to understand this strange murder, Perry makes the parents of the deceased suspect. There are too many inconsistencies in their words, even though they both look broken with grief. Along the way, the detective learns about the involvement of a sectarian cult in this case, led by a certain sister Alice. Who she is and what she is capable of, Perry has yet to find out.
His close assistants in this matter are lawyer Elias, as well as Della Street, who records all kinds of information received from witnesses. Elias had a great reputation long ago, so when he advised people to take Perry into the case, he was immediately listened to. The only thing left was to convince Mason to take up the investigation.
Now Perry is trying to figure out who is behind the murder of the baby, why was he treated so cruelly? How will Perry’s personal life turn out and how will the murder of a child turn out for his own career?
Actors and their roles
- Perry Mason – a detective who is alien to the concepts of morality, honor and dignity; takes a lot of photographs, including the scene of incidents; often mentions his son, who lives with his mother; sleeps with a woman who is more obsessed with sex than himself – Matthew Rhys.
- Matthew Rhys chose the hat for his image on his own, since initially he insisted on working out the image of his character right down to the appearance. In the 1st episode of the 1st season, there was mustard on the tie of the protagonist, and all eyewitnesses assumed that it was an egg. This was invented by Rhys to show the character’s negligence.
- In order to understand his character and play him the way he feels it, Rhys refused to watch the tape of the same name, released more than 50 years ago. There Perry Mason was completely different – more open, honest, but he could also tell a person an unpleasant truth without hesitation.
- The filming process took place in the pavilions, and some scenes were filmed using chromakey (“green screen”). The style of the project was similar to what was filmed in the 1930s, when outside the window of a car driving along the highway, there was such an unrealistic view that it was striking.
- During the filming of season 1, the heat was unbearable, and the make-up artists were forced to constantly tweak the makeup of the actors to hide their wet, exhausted faces. No one could stand the heat, but anyway, Season 1 was great.
- Matthew Rhys has become a guest star. And this is despite the fact that there are no films and TV series for a wide audience in his portfolio for a long time. They say that the director helped him get into the project.
