Perry Mason Season 3: Hopes High but Fate Uncertain, Star Matthew Rhys Considers Exit
Perry Mason’s executive producer Susan Downey has talked about the possibilities of a third season. In an interview with Deadline, Susan said:
“Wouldn’t that be nice? 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.”
Perry Mason might lose its popularity and the lead star, Rhys, who has a yearly contract. Susan Downey, in an interview with Bustle, mentioned the chances of leaving the series after 3 seasons. He said:
“There’s a cliche part of me that thinks to round out and do three would be the way to bow out. If we got that nod, and the writers knew what they wanted to do in the third season, how would they do that? It’s the same deal as we have with the first season and now in that, you have to ask the question, ‘Do you go out on a high, or do you face the danger of puttering out on the third?’
They could even bring a new cast in if they wanted to advance it 10 years or whatever. One of the hardest things in this business is reinventing the wheel or trying to make an original move that no one’s done before. That’s a great idea, and in the reimagining, you leave yourself open to broad strokes should you wish.”

“They could totally do that,” Rhys agreed. “One of the hardest things in this business is reinventing the wheel or trying to make an original move that no one’s done before. That’s a great idea, and in the reimagining, you leave yourself open to broad strokes should you wish.”
