Bosch ended the Amazon Prime series when Season 7 dropped on Friday, June 25. However, the stories based on the Michael Connelly books  are not over. There is Bosch spinoff coming. Here is everything we know.

Spoiler alert: There will be Season 7 spoilers in this post.

Bosch Season 7 Ended Amazon Prime Series To Set Up Spinoff

Many fans of the excellent detective show are just learning that Bosch Season 7 is the final season for the Amazon Prime series. However, for those who are already feeling withdrawal symptoms, relax. There will be a spinoff eventually coming out. Moreover, the events in Season 7 set up for the new spinoff.

The eight-episode Season 7 was based on two of Michael Connelly’s books. That includes The Concrete Blonde and The Burning Room. The season starts with Harry investigating an arson. But, things quickly get personal. In addition, his partner Jerry has some anger issues. Things are starting pretty volatile. By the end of the final series, it is clear why the series is done.

Everything We Know About Spinoff

What do we know about the Bosch spinoff? According to Deadline, Titus Welliver, Mimi Rogers, and Madison Lintz will be reprising their roles from Bosch. Like the original, this series is based on the Michael Connelly books. However, the network will be changing. It will air on Amazon’s IMDb TV.

Next, we can look to Season 7 for clues to what the spinoff could contain. After uncovering some horrific hypocrisy, the idealistic detective ended the Amazon Prime series by turning in his badge. That doesn’t mean that the PD is without a member of the Bosch family. That is because Madison Lintz’s character, Maddie, was contemplating a big career move. She was considering whether she would join the force.

However, Rogers’ Honey “Money” Chandler spent most of Season 7 in a coma. This was due to an assassination attempt. Certainly, some of the conflicts in the new spinoff will be between Harry and Honey. But, there Honey may have some new challenges and attitudes after that life-altering event.

Nonetheless, Harry and Honey are going to be paired up. Whether they become an odd couple or become a dynamic duo, their relationship will likely go through layers of changes.

When Is Bosch Spinoff Release Date?

What do we know about the Bosch spinoff release date? So far, nothing. Michael Connelly has just posted on Instagram that they started filming in Los Angeles, at the end of June. Because there are delays due to Covid, it is hard to predict how long it will take to film the upcoming season.

There is always a chance that this will be released in 2021, but it is more likely that it will be released in 2022.

  1. A few of the Bosch novels involve Harry working as a defense investigator for his half-brother Mickey Haller Jr., a.k.a. The Lincoln Lawyer. Those stories could potentially be adapted for the new series with Honey Chandler in place of Haller. The last few books also had a retired Harry working cases with a young detective named Renée Ballard, and I could see some of those ones being adapted with Maddie as the rookie detective, if the series takes place (or goes on) long enough after the original show for her to plausibly graduate from patrol to detective work.

  2. I agree that Bosch will probably end up working for Honey while still haunted by the past cases he couldn’t close. I don’t see Maddie becoming a cop but going to law school and following her uncle Mickey and ultimately teaming with her father to bring justice to those in need. I do see the addition of the Renee Ballard character to help Harry with his cold cases.

  3. I loved all the books (and I do mean ALL). I just got through binge watching Bosch for the 2nd time so of course my first thought was…..is there a Season 8? Glad to hear about the new spin-off. Lots of potential there for great stories. I would love to see Mickey Haller brought in to the show. Lots of good material with those books too.

    Great work Michael Connelly, Titus Welliver, and the whole cast/crew. Top drawer entertainment.
