Amazon’s first original drama wasn’t facing much risk of cancellation before it premiered — not with a built-in audience and Connelly’s name attached to draw in Kindle readers — and the series lived up to its well-known name. “Bosch,” which has been picked up for Season 2 today by Amazon, is the most watched title on Prime Instant Video, for movies or TV, through its first four weeks of availability. Furthermore, the series had the most watched debut weekend of all Amazon Original Series.
Starring Titus Welliver and executive produced by Connelly, Eric Overmyer (“The Wire”) and Henrik Bastin (“The Killing”), Season 2 will focus on two of the author’s popular novels, “Trunk Music” and “The Drop.” These stories will follow Bosch’s investigation of a Hollywood producer who laundered money for the mob and a serial killer who ends up posing a threat to the detective’s ex-wife and daughter.
“I am very excited about continuing the Bosch story with Season 2,” Connelly said in a statement. “I love what we started with and I think our plans for the second season will make the show even better and more exploratory of the character of Harry Bosch. We have a great cast and crew and we are all going to be one year better at this. I can’t wait.”
Amazon Prime subscribers can watch the full first season of “Bosch” now. No premiere date was set for Season 2.
