Amazon has greenlit a fifth series of Bosch, its longest-running Prime Original drama which is based on Michael Connelly’s best-selling novels.
The series stars Titus Welliver (Lost) as homicide Detective Harry Bosch, 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.
Season 5 synopsis
When an attorney is murdered on the eve of his civil rights trial against the LAPD, Bosch is assigned to lead a task force to solve the crime before the city erupts in a riot.
Bosch must pursue every lead, even if it turns the spotlight back on his own department. One murder intertwines with another, and Bosch must reconcile his past to find a justice that has long eluded him.
“As Prime Video’s longest-running one-hour series, Bosch has long been a cornerstone of our scripted programming, and Prime members consistently clamor for more,” said Sharon Tal Yguado, Head of Scripted Series, Amazon Studios.
“We are excited to give them another series with Harry Bosch, Jerry Edgar, Grace Billets and the rest of the diverse characters that make up the Bosch universe.”
“I could not be prouder of the series we are making. Bosch is entertaining and relevant to our world today,” added Connelly.
“On top of that we have a fantastic writing staff and the cast and crew are the best. We feel we are just hitting our stride. Series four is based on “Angels Flight” and I don’t think we could have chosen a more timely story to tell.”
“Producing Bosch for Prime Video has been an honor and a delight,” said Fabrik Entertainment CEO Henrik Bastin, who also executive produces the series. “
Sharon Tal Yguado and her entire team have shown incredible support in the creative process and we couldn’t be more pleased to debut series four this coming April and then to dive back into production on series five with Eric and Dan leading the team as co-showrunners.”
Henrik Pabst, President of Red Arrow Studios International, the TV distribution arm of Red Arrow Studios, said, “It’s fantastic news that Bosch will be back for series five.
“Amazon Prime Video’s longest-running drama is a huge hit internationally, and Bosch fans around the world will be delighted by the news.”
The show’s fourth series will launch on the 13th April.
