Amazon has ordered a fifth season of Bosch, ahead of the season four premiere.

Based on the best-selling Michael Connelly novels, Bosch will launch in its fourth season exclusively on Amazon Prime Video on April 13. Executive producers Eric Overmyer and Daniel Pyne are slated to team up as co-showrunners on the new chapter.

Bosch is produced by Fabrik Entertainment, a Red Arrow Studios company. Prime members can stream seasons one, two and three of Bosch exclusively via the Prime Video app.

“As Amazon 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, the head of scripted series at Amazon Studios. “We are excited to give them another season 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 show we are making,” added Connelly. “Bosch is entertaining and relevant to our world today. 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. Season four is based on Angels Flight, and I don’t think we could have chosen a more timely story to tell.”

“Producing Bosch for Amazon 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 season four this coming April and then to dive back into production on season 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 season 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.”
