Published Apr 16, 2020Perry Mason stands as one of the most classic courtroom dramas ever, so it makes total sense HBO is now rebooting the series. Right now, you can get your first glimpse via the first teaser clip, and you can see, this isn't your grandma's Perry Mason.
Taking over from Raymond Burr, the HBO reboot will star Matthew Rhys, who will play the famed criminal defence lawyer. The show will be set in 1931 Los Angeles during the Great Depression, with the city dealing with a massive oil boom, the Olympics and a rapidly growing film industry — not to mention crime.
In addition to Rhys, Perry Mason will star John Lithgow, Tatiana Maslany, Juliet Rylance, Chris Chalk, Shea Whigham, Stephen Root, Gayle Rankin, Nate Corddry, Veronica Falcon, Jefferson Mays, Lili Taylor, Andrew Howard, Eric Lange and Robert Patrick.
Perry Mason will arrive on June 21 on HBO. But right now, you can watch the first trailer below.
