    Bosch is an American police procedural web television series produced by Amazon Studios and Fabrik Entertainment.

    It stars Titus Welliver as Los Angeles Police detective Harry Bosch.

    The show was developed for Amazon by Eric Overmyer and the first season takes its inspiration from three of Michael Connelly’s novels: City of Bones, Echo Park, and The Concrete Blonde.

    It is one of two drama pilots that Amazon streamed online in early 2014.

    Viewers were allowed to offer their opinions about the pilot before the studio decided whether to place a series order.

    On March 12, 2014, Amazon.com ordered a full season to appear on Amazon Prime, and the season premiered on February 13, 2015.

    On March 18, 2015, Bosch was renewed for a second season, which takes inspiration from Connelly's novels Trunk Music, The Drop, and The Last Coyote.

    The second season premiered on March 11, 2016.

    A third season, which adapts Connelly's novel The Black Echo and elements of A Darkness More Than
    Night
    , premiered on April 21, 2017. On April 24, 2017,

    Connelly confirmed on his official Facebook page that a fourth season is currently being written.

    According to Connelly, the plot will be largely based on Angels Flight with elements from Nine Dragons


    Main cast
    Titus Welliver as Harry Bosch
    • Titus Welliver as Los Angeles Police Department Detective Hieronymus 'Harry' Bosch, a homicide detective in the Hollywood Division. Something of a renegade, Harry is an astute detective with a fundamental respect for rules and policy. Harry lives in a house on stilts in the Hollywood Hills, purchased with money he earned as a technical advisor on a film. (Quinn Welliver as adolescent Harry.)
    • Amy Aquino as Lieutenant Grace Billets, Harry's immediate superior and his friend
    • Lance Reddick as Deputy Chief Irvin Irving, West Bureau Commanding Officer
    • Madison Lintz as Maddie Bosch, Harry's teenaged daughter. She has a close, loving relationship with her father (recurring season 1; main season 2-)
    • Sarah Clarke as Eleanor Wish, Harry's ex-wife, with whom he still has a cordial, if tense, relationship (season 1–2; guest season 3)

    ‘Bosch’ Is Going Back On The Case For A Fourth Season With Amazon Renewal


    Fans of the rule-breaking detective from Michael Connelly’s best selling books are about to get even more Bosch. Having given the green light to a Season 3 of the Titus Welliver-starring series back in April, Amazon Studios today renewed Bosch for a fourth season.

    With Season 3 currently in production in L.A. and slated to launch next year, I hear that Season 4 of Bosch will likely consist of 10-episodes too. No premiere on Amazon has been set for Season 4, but a very late 2017 or 2018 date looks in the cards for the show, developed by Eric Overmyer.

    “I am happy beyond words,” said Connelly, who serves as an EP on the Emmy-nominated Bosch, of the Season 4 renewal. “To think we are going to get another season to explore these characters is wonderful,” he added. “Our team has worked very hard to create the most realistic detective show possible and I think that is resonating with viewers. Titus and the rest of the cast and crew are dedicated to this. We are raising the storytelling bar with Season three and we’ll do it again in four.

    Connolly and Wire alum Overmyer are EPs along with Pieter Jan Brugge and Henrik Bastin of Fabrik Entertainment. Bosch is produced by Fabrik Entertainment, which is a Red Arrow Entertainment Group company.

    The cast includes Jamie Hector as LAPD Detective Jerry Edgar, along with Amy Aquino and Madison Lintz. Lance Reddick plays LAPD Deputy Chief Irvin Irving in the one-hour drama that first premiered back on February 13, 2015.

    I really like the series although S1 felt like it was written by a computer that was fed every cop show script from the 70's-90's and sorted by the most common storylines. Nothing original about it but it's a very well made show.

    Amazon Renews “Bosch” For A Fifth Season


    amazon-renews-bosch-for-a-fifth-season-696x464.jpg


    Ahead of its fourth season premiere in April, Amazon Studios has renewed its old school detective drama “Bosch” for a fifth season. The series has been one of the streaming services most reliable performers, and has scored solid reviews for its strong character work and leisurely pacing.

    Titus Welliver will reprise his role as the homicide detective Harry Bosch from the best-selling novels by Michael Connelly (“The Lincoln Lawyer”). Cast regulars Lance Reddick, Jamie Hector, Amy Aquino and Madison Lintz are all expected back.

    Previous seasons have usually involved incorporating two or three of Connelly’s twenty Bosch books to construct the season-long story arc, but the picks have been fairly random making it not clear what will serve as the story basis for a fifth season.

    Executive producers Eric Overmyer and Daniel Pyne are slated to team up as co-showrunners on the fifth season – Overmyer ran the series for the first three seasons before handing it over to Pyne for the fourth.

    The ten-episode fourth season, which is inspired by Connelly’s novels “Angels Flight” and “Nine Dragons,” premieres exclusively on Amazon Prime Video on Friday, April 13th. Check out the newly released trailer below:

    BOSCH is definitely one of my favourites.

    Whenever it airs on Australian TV, it is the absolute, undisputed highlight of my viewing week.

    I just wish they made more episodes per season.
