Amazon has renewed Bosch for a seventh and final season.
Based on Michael Connelly’s best-selling novels, the series was Amazon Prime Video’s first original drama and is now its longest-running original series. It stars Titus Welliver (Lost) stars as homicide Detective Harry Bosch – alongside Jamie Hector (The Wire) as Jerry Edgar, Amy Aquino (Being Human) as Lt. Grace Billets, Madison Lintz (The Walking Dead) as Maddie Bosch and Lance Reddick (The Wire) as Deputy Chief Irvin Irving.
Amazon’s confidence in the show has remained consistent, repeatedly giving early renewals to the drama. Now, it’s got an early pick-up once more, with Season 7 ordered before Season 6 has even dropped. The sad news, though, is that the seventh run will also be its last.
The series was developed for television by Eric Overmyer (Treme, The Wire, Homicide: Life on the Streets) and is executive produced by Daniel Pyne, Overmyer, Fabrik Entertainment CEO Henrik Bastin (The 100 Code, American Odyssey, The Comedians), Pieter Jan Brugge, John Mankiewicz, Connelly, Red Arrow Studios International president Henrik Pabst, Jan David Frouman, and Elle Johnson. Welliver is also an EP alongside Connelly, as well as James Baker and Bo Stehmeier.
“I’m proud of what we have accomplished with Bosch and look forward to completing the story in Season 7. It’s bittersweet, but all good things come to an end, and I am happy that we will be able to go out the way we want to,” said Connelly in a statement. “This started seven years ago with showrunner Eric Overmyer and me writing the pilot. We plan to write the last episode together as well.”
“We’ll leave behind the longest-running show so far on Amazon and it will be there to be discovered by new viewers for as long as people are streaming. That is amazing to me,” he added. “The other thing is that we would not have come all this way without Titus Welliver. There could not have been a better actor to play this role or a better team player to build this show around. He’ll be Harry Bosch for the ages.”
“Bosch was one of our first Amazon Originals, and it helped define us as a home for smartly written, captivating series,” commented Albert Cheng, COO and Co-Head of Television, Amazon Studios. “It has been a pleasure to work with Eric, Henrik [Bastin], Michael, Pieter Jan [Brugge], Dan [Pyne], Titus and the entire Bosch team. We’re delighted that we get to spend another season with Harry Bosch and conclude this wonderful television series for our Prime Video customers.”
Season 7 will be based The Concrete Blonde and The Burning Room, as Harry and Jerry pursue two separate but perilous murder investigations that will take them to the highest levels of white-collar crime and the deadly depths of the street-level drug trade.
