‘Bosch’ Spinoff Gets Title, ‘Bosch: Legacy’
‘Bosch’ Season 7 was the show’s last
Bosch was Prime Video’s longest-running original series. The show was based on a series of books by Connelly about an LAPD detective named Hieronymous “Harry” Bosch (Titus Welliver). It premiered in 2014 and ran for seven seasons, coming to an end in 2021.
Bosch Season 7 concluded with Bosch resigning from the police department. But that won’t be the end of his story. Months before the show’s last episodes dropped, Amazon announced it was planning a spinoff series that would follow Bosch, his daughter Maddie (Madison Lintz), and lawyer Honey “Money” Chandler (Mimi Rogers). It’s set to air on the free streaming service IMDbTV.
‘Bosch: Legacy’ will feature a two-year time jump
Production on the Bosch spinoff began earlier in 2021. But the show’s title was a mystery until recently, when Connelly announced on his website that the series would be titled Bosch: Legacy. The first season will be based on the book The Wrong Side of Goodbye and will premiere sometime in 2022.
Connelly revealed some more details about the upcoming series in an interview with the Tampa Bay Times. He said Bosch: Legacy will take place two years after the Bosch Season 7 finale. In that episode, Bosch handed in his badge after deciding he could no longer cope with the indifference and politics of the LAPD. He then applied for a private investigator’s license. Meanwhile, his daughter Maddie decided to pursue a career as a police officer. The time jump will also presumably give Honey Chandler plenty of time to recover from the assassination attempt that left her confined to the hospital for most of season 7.
Titus Welliver promises that ‘Bosch: Legacy’ is ‘gonna be good’
While there’s no official premiere date yet for Bosch: Legacy, the show’s first season has already wrapped, according to a tweet from Welliver.
“That’s a wrap on season 1 of Bosch Returns, Son of Bosch, Bosch 2,” he wrote in the Nov. 4 update. “Thank you to our incredible cast and crew! It’s gonna be good!!”
Connelly has also shared several behind-the-scenes looks at the new episodes. In one photo, Maddie is wearing a police uniform, which he admitted was “a little strange.”
“Harry Bosch has no badge; Maddie Bosch does. But it’s all working,” he tweeted.
Another tweet offered a glimpse at Bosch in his new office in season 1’s final episode.
“Every L.A. private detective’s office has to have Venetian blinds, right? It’s in the rule book of noir, I think,” the best-selling author wrote. “Here we are filming the last episode of the first season of the new Bosch show. It’s been a great ride.”
Bosch Seasons 1-7 are currently streaming on Prime Video.
