Prime Video's hit cop drama "Bosch" is ending with the upcoming seventh season, but Deadline is reporting that Amazon Studios is producing a spinoff for its ad-supported IMDb TV free streaming service.

While Titus Welliver will continue to star as Harry Bosch, the new show is more of an ensemble. Madison Lintz will be featured more prominently in the new series, reprising her role as Harry's daughter Maddie. Mimi Rogers, who has recurred since the first season as high-end civil rights attorney Honey 'Money' Chandler, will also star.

Eric Overmyer will continue as showrunner. Author Michael Connelly will continue to write for the new series alongside returning writer Tom Bernardo. Zetna Fuentes, who directed episodes from the fourth and sixth seasons of "Bosch", will executive produce the spinoff and direct the pilot.

Amazon Studios Press Release said:

IMDb TV expands its lineup of
premium original content with
new spinoff series of fan-
favorite drama Bosch

Mar 03, 2021

The Seventh and Final Season of Bosch Will Premiere This Summer on
Amazon Prime Video

CULVER CITY, Calif., March. 3, 2021 — IMDb TV, Amazon’s premium free streaming service, today announced it has picked up a new spinoff series of the fan-favorite Amazon Original series Bosch. Based on Michael Connelly’s best-selling books, the new series will begin filming later this year with stars Titus Welliver, Mimi Rogers and Madison Lintz reprising their roles. The seventh and final season of Bosch will premiere in summer 2021 on Prime Video.

The new IMDb TV Original will follow Harry Bosch as he embarks on the next chapter of his career and finds himself working with his one-time enemy and top-notch attorney Honey “Money” Chandler. With a deep and complicated history between this unlikely pair, they must work together to do what they can agree on - finding justice.

“To say I am ecstatic is an understatement! To be given the opportunity to tell more Harry Bosch stories is a tremendous gift,” said Titus Welliver, series star and Executive Producer. “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 spinoff, 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!”

“I am beyond excited by this and I think the fans that have called for more Bosch will be as well,” said Michael Connelly, Executive Producer and best-selling author. “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.”

“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,” said Henrik Bastin, CEO, Fabel Entertainment. “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.”

“While the current chapter of Bosch is coming to a close, this gritty, captivating story continues in both new and familiar ways. IMDb TV is the perfect home to extend the longstanding Amazon Studios relationship with the immensely talented Michael Connelly, Eric Overmyer, Tom Bernardo, Henrik Bastin, Pieter Jan Brugge, Titus Welliver, Mimi Rogers and Madison Lintz,” said Lauren Anderson and Ryan Pirozzi, Co-Heads of Content and Programming, IMDb TV. “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 spinoff for Amazon Studios.”

Produced by Fabel Entertainment, the Bosch spinoff for IMDb TV is executive produced by Michael Connelly, Eric Overmyer, Tom Bernardo, Henrik Bastin, Pieter Jan Brugge, Titus Welliver and Zetna Fuentes. Fuentes (Bosch, Jane the Virgin, Shameless) will also direct the spinoff pilot.

Bosch was developed for television by Overmyer and is executive produced by Titus Welliver, Elle Johnson, Pieter Jan Brugge, Henrik Bastin, Michael Connelly and Eric Overmyer.

Prime members can stream seasons one through six of Bosch now exclusively via the Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices including Fire TV, mobile devices and online at www.amazon.com/boschtv. Members can also download the series to mobile devices for offline viewing at no additional cost to their membership. The series is a global release and is available for Prime Video members in more than 240 countries and territories.

Recently, IMDb TV debuted the Original docuseries, Top Class: The Life and Times of the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers. Additional Originals coming to IMDb TV in 2021 include the Untitled Judge Judy Sheindlin Project - the streaming debut for no-nonsense, expeditious Judge Sheindlin and her signature adjudication style - a reimagining of the crime drama Leverage and the second season of the popular spy thriller Alex Rider.

Was thrilled to read this news earlier this afternoon. I love Bosch, so new adventures after the series ends its Amazon run this summer will be most welcome.

Agreed. I love the series and the character. I'm glad we will have more Bosch in some form.

I’m disappointed I’ll have to watch commercials.
I absolutely refuse to watch an "ad-supported delivery method" (which we used to call, you know, television!).

I'll happily pay for a streaming service to avoid ads. I won't watch ads at all. I'll simply not watch the content and actively suggest that friends and family avoid the content, too.

This stance goes doubly for Amazon services.

I hope this "network" utterly fails and is quickly shuttered. If that means the show gets cancelled, then so be it.

And to hell with anyone who wants to watch ad supported TV. I don’t mind you choosing not to watch what you don’t like, but I do not like you hoping others lose their choice.

I agree 1000%. I am completely DONE with ad-supported television. It is extremely rare that I turn on "regular TV". There's a reason that every TV in the house has an Apple TV box connected and why every streaming service I subscribe to is done at the no ads level.

The spinoff is titled "Bosch: Legacy" and the first season is coming sometime next year:


The Vulture article implies that the episodes will also be available through the Prime Video app; if so, hopefully the episodes will be commercial free for Prime subscribers.

I've been rewatching "White Collar" through the Prime app, but it's available because of IMDB TV and there are ads.
