Here’s everything you need to know about Bosch: Legacy.

What is it about?

Bosch is a police procedural drama about LAPD detective Harry Bosch. The new series, Bosch: Legacy, finds Bosch retired from the LAPD – but working instead as a private detective.

He’s got two big cases this year: trying to track down the lost heir of a dying billionaire, and volunteering with a local struggling police department to catch a serial rapist.

Bosch finds himself working with former rival, attorney Honey Chandler, as well as his daughter Maddie, who has now joined the LAPD herself.

Is it based on a book?

Yes, it is. Harry Bosch is a character who first appeared in the 1992 novel The Black Echo, one of 21 Bosch novels written by Michael Connolly.

Bosch: Legacy is an adaptation of 2016’s The Wrong Side of Goodbye, which was the nineteenth Bosch novel to be published.

Who is in the cast?

Tituss Welliver once again stars as Hieronymous ‘Harry’ Bosch. You might recognise Welliver from LOST, The Good Wife, Deadwood, or Sons of Anarchy. He also previously played Bosch across seven seasons on Amazon Prime already.

Mimi Rogers reprises her role from Bosch as attorney Honey ‘Money’ Chandler. Rogers is best known for film roles including The Rapture (1991) and Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997), and television roles like Mad Men, The X Files, and Two and a Half Men.

They’re joined by Madison Lintz (The Walking Dead), who plays Maddie Bosch, and Stephen A. Chang (Shameless), who plays Maurice ‘Mo’ Bassi, a gadget whizz who helps the newly independent PI Bosch. Denise G. Sanchez (Mayans MC, The Good Place) plays Reina Vasquez, Maddie Bosch’s LAPD partner.

Is there a trailer?

Yes, there is! You can see it right here.

When and how can I watch it?

Bosch: Legacy is available to stream on Amazon Freevee (formerly IMDb TV). It’s the free-but-with-ads version of Amazon Prime (which you can access through the Amazon Prime app), a relatively new streaming service that’s home to originals like Alex Rider and library titles like Community and The West Wing.

The first four episodes of Bosch: Legacy arrived on Amazon Freevee on Friday May 6. Two more episodes will release after that on Friday May 13, another two on Friday May 20, and then a final two (taking you up to a total of ten altogether) on Friday May 27.

How many episodes are there in the first series of Bosch: Legacy?

There’s a total of ten episodes across the series.

Is there going to be a second series?

Yes, there is! Before the first series of Bosch: Legacy had even aired, Amazon Freevee commissioned a second series of the new spinoff show. At the moment, very little is known about the second series of Bosch: Legacy - which book it might adapt, which characters will appear, so on - other than, of course, that Titus Welliver will once again play Harry Bosch.

Why should I watch it?

If you’re a fan of Bosch who was disappointed when the series came to a close in 2021, the character’s return – arguably an eighth series for the show, really – will surely be good news.
