Amazon Prime Video is going for a sixth season of its original series Bosch.
The longest-running Prime original, Bosch is based on Michael Connelly’s best-selling novels and was developed as a series by Eric Overmyer (Treme, The Wire, Homicide: Life on the Street). The one-hour drama stars Titus Welliver (Lost) as homicide Detective Harry Bosch.
Season five of the Emmy-nominated series is currently in production and will launch on Amazon Prime Video in 2019. Bosch is produced by Fabrik Entertainment, a Red Arrow Studios company.
Albert Cheng, co-head of television at Amazon Studios, said: “Bosch is a customer and critical favorite and Amazon Prime members are fans of this long-running series that delivers strong storytelling, complex characters and exceptional performances. We are happy to continue to work with Fabrik, Michael Connelly and the rest of the team on this artful procedural drama.”
Connelly added: “I’m on the set where we are wrapping up the filming of season five, and now this great news that we get to do it again with a sixth season. Can’t wait!”
“One of the best things about producing a television show is that rare moment when you get to tell your entire cast and crew that the show is returning for another season,” said Fabrik Entertainment CEO Henrik Bastin, who also executive produces the series. “I just informed the entire Bosch family that we’re coming back for a sixth season and it has brought us all pure joy. A BIG thanks to Team Amazon for being such a great creative partner.”
