Michael Connelly’s most recent ‘Harry Bosch‘ novel Dark Sacred Night, published by Orion, just hit the UK and international shelves (and we reviewed it here) and there’s more good news for the veteran cop and his creator with the confirmation coming today that the Amazon Prime series based on the character has been renewed for a sixth season, making it the platform’s longest-running show to date. The news was announced by Connelly and Titus Welliver, the actor who headlines the show. It comes even before the fifth series has been released (due sometime in 2019) and, in fact, the show was only just completing filming on that fifth season when the pair broke the news from the set.
“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,” Albert Cheng, (co-head of television at Amazon Studios), said in a statement. “We are happy to continue to work with (production studio) Fabrik Entertainment, Michael Connelly, and the rest of the team on this artful procedural drama.”
The show has been a solid ratings winner for Amazon since it debuted with a number of Connelly’s Bosch novels being simultaneously woven into newer ongoing narratives. Season 1 featured elements from City of Bones, Echo Park and The Concrete Blonde. Season 2 took material from Trunk Music, The Drop and The Last Coyote. Season 3 featured events from The Black Echo and A Darkness More than Night. Season 4 picked up plot lines from Season 3 and the story featured in the novel Angels Flight. The upcoming fifth season has a lot of material from Two Kinds of Truth.
Hey, Titus Welliver and I have some good news to share about Bosch.
