In a statement announcing the cancellation, HBO said, "We are tremendously grateful for the remarkable work of Matthew Rhys and the unrivaled cast and crew of Perry Mason for their reimagining of such a treasured and storied franchise. While we won't be moving forward with another season of the series, we are excited to continue working with the brilliant creatives at Team Downey on future projects."
Created by Erle Stanley Gardner, the series had Jack Amiel and Michael Begler as writers and co-showrunners
While the first season of Perry Mason won four Emmy nominations, including Lead Actor in Drama Series, the second season is also in contention for the awards this year,
