It is being reported by Deadline that Perry Mason has been cancelled after two seasons. The news comes less than two months after the drama wrapped its eight-episode sophomore run, which again garnered a positive critical reception.

The show debuted in 2020 and gave the cable network its most-watched series premiere in almost two years. While it was promptly renewed for a second season, the show would not return for nearly three years. Unfortunately the ratings for Season 2 slipped significantly enough to not warrant another renewal.

Based on the famed criminal defense lawyer from the novels of the same name, Perry Mason follows his early days as a struggling private investigator in 1931 Los Angeles. After landing the case of the decade involving a kidnapping that goes wrong, Mason's relentless pursuit of the truth reveals a fractured city and a possible road to self-redemption.
