HBO has canceled Perry Mason after two seasons. The series starred Matthew Rhys and was based on the work of Erle Stanley Gardner. The drama series traced the origins of famed criminal defense lawyer Perry Mason. The second season finale aired in April. 

Season two of The Lincoln Lawyer will premiere in two parts on Netflix. Part 1 will premiere July 6. Part 2 will premiere August 3. Mickey Haller, an iconoclastic idealist, runs his law practice out of the back seat of his Lincoln, as he takes on cases big and small across the expansive city of Los Angeles. Based on the series of bestselling novels by renowned author Michael Connelly, the second season is based on the fourth book in “The Lincoln Lawyer” series, “The Fifth Witness.” 

The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart premieres on Prime Video August 4. Based on Holly Ringland’s best-selling debut novel, the seven-part series tells the emotionally compelling story of Alice Hart. When Alice, aged 9, tragically loses her parents in a mysterious fire, she is taken to live with her grandmother June at Thornfield flower farm, where she learns that there are secrets within secrets about her and her family’s past. Set against Australia’s breathtaking natural landscape, and with native wildflowers and plants providing a way to express the inexpressible, this enthralling family drama spans decades. As she grows from her complicated past, Alice’s journey builds to an emotional climax when she finds herself fighting for her life against a man she loves.

Crews encounter new adrenaline-filled adventures including assisting local authorities in the recovery of a submerged vehicle believed to have a body inside, as well as delicately hauling a shipwrecked vessel near sacred burial grounds, where they manage to avoid the wrath of locals – both in the natural and supernatural worlds. And after a devastating oil spill, crews create a unique oil recovery system designed to protect the marine ecosystem.

The docuseries follows the horrifying grave robber and serial killer Ed Gein, otherwise known as “The Plainfield Ghoul” and “The Mad Butcher,” whose crimes inspired such iconic films as Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and The Silence of the Lambs. It explores Gein’s upbringing and twisted relationship with his mother (which famously inspired Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho), his early grave robbing, the murders leading up to his arrest, and the police’s discovery of his terrifying house of horrors – all accompanied by the brand-new revelations revealed in never-before-heard recordings.

All thirteen episodes of Senryu Girl will be added back to HIDIVE June 11. The English sub and dub versions will be available.

This means she expresses herself exclusively in 5-7-5 syllables. To most this might seem like an inconvenience, but for Nanako and her ex-delinquent bestie, Busujima Eiji, it adds to the experience of their high school lives as they run the Literature Club.
