When does Matlock return?

Matlock originally aired on NBC
Matlock is an American mystery legal drama television series. It starred Andy Griffith in the title role of criminal defense attorney Ben Matlock. The show's format is similar to that of CBS' Perry Mason, with Matlock identifying the perpetrators and then confronting them in dramatic courtroom scenes. Matlock's standard fee is $100,000 (equivalent to US$247,207 in 2021)
The show centers on widower Ben Matlock (Andy Griffith), a renowned, folksy and popular though cantankerous attorney. Matlock studied law at Harvard Law School and, after several years as a public defender, established his law practice in Atlanta, living in a modest farmhouse in a neighboring suburb. He is known to visit crime scenes to discover clues otherwise overlooked and come up with viable alternative theories of the crime in question.
