Up until now, there is still no news of the renewal or cancellation of Perry Mason.
However, during an interview with Forbes, Matthew Rhys - the actor who plays our main character Perry Mason - shares that he thinks the show should have at least three seasons.
"There's a cliche part of me that thinks to round out and do three would be the way to bow out. They could even bring a new cast in if they wanted to advance it ten years or whatever", Rhys says.

Rhys has already thought about how the show could continue with or without him. He suggests that they could introduce a new cast and fast forward the timeline by 10 years or more. Rhys even proposes that the character Mason could be killed off and the show could go back in time. This idea allows for a fresh start while also leaving room for creative freedom.

Similarly, in an interview with TVLINE, Rhys admits that he has been thinking about plans for a Season 3 of the show since filming wrapped up. Rhys expresses his enthusiasm for the opportunity to continue telling the story of these characters. He believes there is still much more to explore. However, the decision ultimately rests with HBO.

"Look, we’re focused on landing the plane here with Season 2. At the same time, I think that Matthew and all the other people populating it in front of the screen, all our people behind the scenes, have built this incredible world that I know we could continue to tell really interesting stories about. We would be lying if we didn’t say we’ve certainly been talking to Michael a ton about a third season, but our fate rests in the hands of others", she says.
