Watch: Amazon Freevee unveils new Bosch: Legacy trailer
James R | On 14, Apr 2022
It’s only a matter of weeks until Bosch: Legacy hits our screens, although it’ll be doing so in a slightly different place to where you might have expected: the spin-off from Amazon’s detective drama will premiere on Amazon Freevee, the new name for IMDb TV.
The series will follow Harry Bosch (Titus Welliver) and Money Chandler (Mimi Rogers) as they both begin new chapters following the Carl Rogers case that shifted the dynamic of all their lives.
Loosely based on the novel The Wrong Side of Goodbye from acclaimed author Michael Connelly, the first season of Bosch: Legacy will see the former LAPD detective called to the estate of ailing billionaire Whitney Vance, where Bosch is tasked with finding Vance’s only potential heir. Along the way, Bosch finds himself clashing with powerful figures who have a vested interest in the heir not being found. Researching the family tree, Bosch uncovers shocking revelations that span generations, all while billions of dollars remain on the line. Without the badge and a preference for old-school tactics, Bosch finds an invaluable resource in Maurice “Mo” Bassi (Stephen A Chang, Captain Marvel), a tech-forward gadget whiz who shares Bosch’s commitment to justice and fondness for smooth jazz.
Meanwhile, following in her father’s footsteps, Maddie Bosch (Madison Lintz), a rookie patrol officer with the LAPD, is paired with Reina Vasquez (Denise Sanchez, The Good Place), a no-nonsense, hard-charging training officer. As Maddie patrols the streets of Los Angeles, she grapples with what kind of cop she wants to be. Her father — who continues to live by the code that everybody counts, or nobody counts – believes the issue is clear: being a cop is either a mission or just a job.
Bosch: Legacy will be the first Original series to debut on Amazon Freevee. The first four episodes of the series will be available beginning 6th May, with two new episodes available each Friday through 27th May. From 22nd April, meanwhile, all seven seasons of the original Bosch will be available to watch on the ad-supported free platform. A Bosch FAST channel will also launch on the same date, allowing fans to continuously enjoy the program in an experience similar to broadcast television.

Bosch spin-off heads to Amazon’s IMDb TV
4th March 2021
Amazon’s Bosch is coming to an end this year, but the long-running detective show isn’t quite closing its case book, with the Amazon-owned IMDb TV picking up a spin-off series featuring – you guessed it – Harry Bosch.
Based on Michael Connelly’s best-selling novels, Bosch was Amazon Prime Video’s first original drama and is 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, plus Mimi Rogers as attorney Honey “Money” Chandler.
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),
Last year, Amazon confirmed that it had renewed the series for a seventh season that would also be its last. Now, with that seventh run nearing our screens, a spin-off has been picked up by IMDb TV that will see Welliver, Rogers and Lintz all reprise their roles.
The untitled series will follow Bosch in the next chapter of his career, as he works with Chandler to do the one thing the former enemies can agree on: finding justice.
Connelly and Overmyer will exec-produce the show, alongside Tom Bernardo, Henrik Bastin, Pieter Jan Brugge, Welliver and Zetna Fuentes, who will direct the pilot for the new series. It is produced by Fabel Entertainment, a new company set up by Bastin.
“To say I am ecstatic is an understatement. To be given the opportunity to tell more Harry Bosch stories is a tremendous gift,” said Welliver. “The process of shooting Season 7 with the shadow of it being our final loomed heavily so when the idea was presented to continue with the possibility of a spin-off, without hesitation I said, ‘Let’s go.’ To all of our Bosch fans, thank for your incredible support for all these years and I can promise you the ride will only get better.”
Added Connelly: “I am beyond excited by this and I think the fans that have called for more Bosch will be as well. To continue the Harry Bosch story and see him team up with ‘Money’ Chandler will be more than I could have ever wished for. And to continue our relationship with Amazon and be part of the IMDb TV line up will insure our commitment to providing viewers with a high-quality, creative and relevant show. I can’t wait to get started.”
Bastin said: “I couldn’t be more thrilled to continue our relationship with Amazon Studios, Michael and now IMDb TV to tell more of Harry Bosch’s exciting story. The final season of Bosch is one of the best yet, and while the spin-off will be a new show with its distinct voice and tone, our passionate fans will feel right at home.”
Lauren Anderson and Ryan Pirozzi, Co-Heads of Content and Programming at IMDb TV, commented: “While the current chapter of Bosch is coming to a close, this gritty, captivating story continues in both new and familiar ways. Bosch has entertained fans season after season through vibrant storytelling and distinctive characters, and we are thrilled to evolve Bosch and ‘Money’ Chandler’s adventures through a new, ambitious IMDb TV Original and the first series spin-off for Amazon Studios.”
Filming on the programme will begin later this year and, with the ad-supported streaming service IMDb TV only available in the USA at present, don’t be surprised if it ends up streaming on Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
