Bosch, Amazon’s first original hour-long drama, has already been greenlit for a second season. That means it’s also the first drama series to be renewed at Amazon.
The show, which premiered ten episodes back in February, is based on a series of Michael Connelly novels that follow LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch – played by Titus Welliver, who you may know from Lost. It also stars Jamie Hector, Amy Aquino, Lance Reddick, Annie Wersching, Sarah Clarke. and Jason Gedrick.
“I am very excited about continuing the Bosch story with season two,” said Michael Connelly. “I love what we started with and I think our plans for the second season will make the show even better and more exploratory of the character of Harry Bosch. We have a great cast and crew and we are all going to be one year better at this. I can’t wait.”
Amazon already has a season two synopsis up:
In the second season of Bosch, the relentless LAPD detective will investigate the murder of a Hollywood producer who laundered money for the mob. He will also pursue serial killer Chilton Hardy and the investigations take Bosch from the Hollywood Hills down through the gritty back streets of L.A. and Las Vegas, threatening those closest to him—his teenage daughter and ex-wife
“We’re delighted to see that Amazon customers have immediately embraced Bosch,” said Roy Price, Vice President, Amazon Studios. “Fans will soon be able to enjoy more of this inspired adaptation brought to life by a remarkably gifted cast.”
According to Amazon, it would’ve been insane not to renew the show. The company says Bosch had biggest debut weekend of all Amazon originals (including the award-winning Transparent). And over the past month, it’s been the most-watched thing on all of Amazon Prime Instant Video.
