“Months after the Dodson case has come to an end, the scion of a powerful oil family is brutally murdered. When the DA goes to the city’s Hoovervilles to pinpoint the most obvious of suspects, Perry, Della, and Paul find themselves at the center of a case that will uncover far reaching conspiracies and force them to reckon with what it truly means to be guilty.”
Shea Whigham, who plays Pete in the series, had this to say about the second season: “We’re in ’33 in Perry Mason. Perry is in the soup again, and he’s gotta try to figure his way out. Hopefully, Strickland can help him navigate that.”
Perry Mason is preparing to work on a murder case against the City, despite warnings and concern. He is shown to be vulnerable, wondering if he can win. Violence and mystery are to follow.
