Amazon claimed last year that season 1 of “Bosch” was its most watched original series. The company later asserted that “The Man in the High Castle” had surpassed “Bosch” to claim that title. Amazon does not release viewership data for its originals series and movies.
Available to stream for Amazon Prime customers, “Bosch” stars Titus Welliver (“Lost”) as LAPD detective Harry Bosch. Jamie Hector, Amy Aquino, Madison Lintz and Lance Reddick also star.
“Bosch” was developed for television by Eric Overmyer (“Treme,” “The Wire,” “Homicide: Life on the Streets”) with Connelly, Pieter Jan Brugge (“Heat,” “The Insider,” “The Clearing”) and Fabrik Entertainment’s Henrik Bastin (“The Killing,” “Odyssey,” “The Comedians”).
Seeasons 1 and 2 are currently available to stream in the U.S., U.K., Germany and Austria. Season 2 will premiere in Japan April 8.
The renewal for “Bosch” comes two months after Amazon also picked up comedy “Mozart in the Jungle” for a third season after the series won Golden Globe Awards for best musical or comedy series and best actor in a musical or comedy series for star Gael García Bernal.
