Amazon Renews ‘Bosch’ Cop Drama for Season 2

Amazon Studios is bringing back “Bosch,” hour-long drama series based on Michael Connelly’s books about an L.A. homicide detective, after the hour-long series scored as its most-watched original to date in its premiere weekend last month.

Bosch” — the Internet studio’s first drama — stars Titus Welliver (“Lost,” “The Good Wife,” “Sons of Anarchy”) as titular detective Harry Bosch. Season two will draw from Connelly’s “Trunk Music” and “The Drop” novels; the 19 books in his Bosch series have sold more than 50 million copies.

“We’re delighted to see that Amazon customers have immediately embraced ‘Bosch,’” Amazon Studios VP Roy Price said. “Fans will soon be able to enjoy more of this inspired adaptation brought to life by a remarkably gifted cast.”

Amazon, like Netflix, doesn’t release specific viewing data. But according to Amazon, “Bosch” has been the most-watched title on Prime Instant Video out of all TV shows and movies in the four weeks since the season one debut on Feb. 13.

In the second season of “Bosch,” the LAPD gumshoe investigates the murder of a Hollywood producer who laundered money for the mafia. He will also pursue serial killer Chilton Hardy and the investigations take Bosch from the Hollywood Hills down through L.A.’s gritty back streets of L.A.

“Bosch” was developed by Eric Overmyer (“Treme,” “The Wire,” “Homicide: Life on the Streets”) and exec produced by Overmyer, Connelly and Henrik Bastin of Fabrik Entertainment (“The Killing,” “Burn Notice”), a Red Arrow Entertainment Group company, and Pieter Jan Brugge (“Heat,” “The Insider”).

Returning cast for the second season include Jamie Hector (“The Wire”), Amy Aquino (“Being Human”), Lance Reddick (“Fringe,” “The Wire”) and Sarah Clarke (“24”).

Other original series Amazon Studios has renewed for second seasons include Jill Soloway’s Golden Globe Award-winning dark comedy “Transparent”; Garry Trudeau-penned political comedy “Alpha House” starring John Goodman; and “Mozart in the Jungle,” from Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman, and Paul Weitz.
