Amazon renews Bosch: Legacy for Season 3
James R | On 06, May 2023
Bosch: Legacy has already been renewed for a third season, before its second season has even been released.
The online giant first brought Michael Connelly’s detective Harry Bosch to the screens back in 2015 and the crime drama went on to become Amazon Prime Video’s longest-running original drama to date, with the show going on for seven seasons.
Last year, Amazon’s free-with-ads platform Freevee tapped into the franchise’s appeal by releasing a spin-off series, Bosch: Legacy, which follows Harry Bosch (Titus Welliver), a retired homicide detective turned private investigator, and Money Chandler (Mimi Rogers, an attorney who struggles to maintain her faith in the justice system, as they both begin new chapters in their lives. Meanwhile, Maddie Bosch (Madison Lintz) discovers the challenges of being a rookie patrol cop on the streets of Los Angeles.
The first season of Bosch: Legacy built on the loyal fan base of the original series, delivering a higher number of viewers than any previous season of Bosch. Season 2 will arrive this autumn and sees Bosch and Chandler work together to seek out a killer who just might find them first. Meanwhile, Maddie Bosch is in danger and her law enforcement career hangs in the balance.
The returning cast will include include Jamie Hector (Det. Jerry Edgar), Stephen A. Chang (Maurice “Mo” Bassi), Denise Sanchez (Det. Reina Vasquez), David Moses (Martin Rose), Cynthia Kaye McWilliams (Det. Joan Bennett), Scott Klace (Sgt. John Mankiewicz), Gregory Scott Cummins (Det. “Crate” Moore), Troy Evans (Det. “Barrel” Johnson), Jacqueline Pinol (Det. Julie Epinosa), Jacqueline Obradors (Christine Vega), DaJuan Johnson (Rondell Pierce), and David Marciano (Det. Brad Conniff).
Joining the, will be David Denman (Mare of Easttown, Brightburn) as Kurt Dockweiler, Patrick Brennan (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, The Next Three Days) as David Foster, Rafael Cabrera (Too Old to Die Young, S.W.A.T.) as Vince Harrick, Bruce Davison (X-Men, The Crucible) as James Rafferty, Jessica Camacho (All Rise, Watchmen) as Jade Quinn, and Guy Wilson (Angelyne, Days of Our Lives) as Det. Kevin Long.
Now, Amazon Freevee has greenlit a third run.
“The story of Harry Bosch has evolved over the years, and his journey is far from over,” said Lauren Anderson, head of AVOD Originals, unscripted, and targeted programming, Amazon Studios. “This renewal of Bosch: Legacy is a testament to the enduring power of the world Michael Connelly built. We look forward to giving Bosch fandom the next chapter for these beloved characters.”
“What a gift and a joy it is to be able to dig into these characters again and take their stories even further,” said Michael Connelly, writer and executive producer. “Ten years ago, we began this amazing journey, partnering with Prime Video and now Amazon Freevee, and I couldn’t be happier with what we’ve done and will do.”
The renewal continues Amazon’s expansion of the Bosch universe, with two more spin-offs in the works, inspired by the work of best-selling author Michael Connelly. The first follows Harry Bosch’s former partner, Detective Jerry Edgar, who is tapped for an undercover FBI mission in Little Haiti, Miami – Jamie Hector, who starred opposite Titus Welliver on the original Bosch series, is confirmed to reprise his role in the developing project. The second centres on Detective Renee Ballard, who is tasked with running the LAPD’s new cold-case division.
