HBO Max next month (August 2020) plans to add 143 new TV shows and movies to its lineup, including series or season finales for three original HBO shows.

The new titles will include the season finale of Perry Mason (pictured above), the HBO original murder mystery based loosely (very loosely) on the 1950s TV trial drama starring Raymond Burr. Matthew Rhys (The Americans) plays Mason as a young detective seeking answers in corrupt 1930s Los Angeles. The cast also includes John Lithgow, Tatiana Maslany and Shea Whigham., which tracks critical reviews, gives Perry Mason a score of 77 out of a possible 100 based on 75 reviews.

“Brimming with top notch performances and dripping in style, Perry Mason‘s compelling mystery mostly makes up for its messy storytelling,” the site states, summarizing the critics.

Also notable in August: The series finale of I’ll Be Gone In the Dark, a HBO original documentary about a Los Angeles writer who investigates a decades-old series of unsolved serial murders and rapes. gives the true crime show a score of 95, writing that “director Liz Garbus smartly centers I’ll Be Gone in the Dark around the late Michelle McNamara’s passionate efforts, weaving together a heavy, but important tapestry of trauma, obsession, and survival.”

HBO Max next month will also premiere Clint Eastwood’s Richard Jewell, which chronicles how the media and federal government conspired to falsely blame a Georgia security guard for the 1996 Olympic bombing. (The real bomber was caught seven years later.)
