Bosch is probably one of my all-time favorite cop dramas. The writing on that series is just great and I love the characters that it’s introduced. I’m happy to report that Amazon has renewed it for a seventh season! I’m also a little sad to say that while we are getting a seventh season, it will be its last.
The series stars Titus Welliver and it’s based on Michael Connelly’s bestselling books. Season 6 of the series will premiere later this year and we don’t really know how that is going to play out. But, the final season will see Harry Bosch (Welliver) and Jerry Edgar (Jamie Hector) “pursuing 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.”
Connelly had this to say in a statement:
“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.
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. 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.”
At least they are going to close out the series the way they want to. Albert Cheng, COO and Co-Head of Television, Amazon Studios added:
“Bosch was one of our first Amazon Originals, and it helped define us as a home for smartly written, captivating series. 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.”
Henrik Bastin, Partner and CEO of Fabrik Entertainment said:
“I’m delighted that Bosch is returning for its seventh and final season. Producing Bosch has been an amazing journey, and my deepest gratitude goes to Michael Connelly, Eric Overmyer and executive producer Pieter Jan Brugge. It would have been impossible without their creative vision, talent and kindness. I feel proud knowing that we put everything we’ve got into the series and that we gave the fans all we had. I would also like to thank Amazon for their unwavering support and engagement from the very beginning of this project and throughout all seven seasons. Jen, Vernon, Marc, Albert and Brian, thanks! It has been a blast!”
If you haven’t watched Bosch yet, this is a series that you’ve gotta see, especially if you like cop dramas. It’s been a crazy ride so far and we’ve got two more seasons to enjoy before it closes out.
