‘Bosch': Amazon Renews Its Longest-Running Original Series for Season 6

The pickup comes ahead of the show’s fifth season, which is currently in production

Amazon’s longest-running original series, “Bosch,” will keep running for a little bit longer, as the company has greenlit a sixth season.

The pickup comes ahead of the show’s fifth season, which is currently in production. The fifth season will drop on Amazon Prime Video sometime in 2019.

“‘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,” said Albert Cheng, co-head of television for Amazon Studios.

Based on Michael Connelly’s best-selling novels, the hour-long series stars Titus Welliver as Detective Harry Bosch, Jamie Hector as Jerry Edgar, Amy Aquino as Lt. Grace Billets, Madison Lintz as Maddie Bosch and Lance Reddick as Deputy Chief Irvin Irving.

“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.”

“Bosch” is produced by Fabrik Entertainment, a Red Arrow Studios company. “Bosch” was developed for television by Eric Overmyer and is executive produced by Daniel Pyne, Overmyer, Bastin, Pieter Jan Brugge, John Mankiewicz, Michael Connelly, Henrik Pabst, Jan David Frouman and Elle Johnson. Welliver also serves as a producer.

Overmyer pulled double duty this past year for Amazon, helming the third season of “Man in the High Castle.” which will return for a fourth season next year, but with a new showrunner, while Overmyer returns to “Bosch.”
