EXCLUSIVE: Ahead of Bosch‘s Season 4 premiere, which has been set for April 13, Amazon’s longest-running drama series has been renewed for a fifth season. Executive producer Eric Overmyer, who developed Bosch for television and served as showrunner for the first three seasons before leaving to become showrunner on another Amazon drama series, The Man In the High Castle, is returning. He will serve as co-showrunner alongside executive producer Daniel Pyne, who succeeded Overmyer as Bosch showrunner for Season 4.
Amazon has set the fatalistic Friday the 13 of April as a premiere date for the fourth season of Bosch on Primetime Video. You can watch the first trailer below.
Overmyer is leaving The Man In the High Castle after work on its upcoming third season has been completed. There is no immediate replacement.
Based on Michael Connelly’s best-selling novels, Bosch stars Titus Welliver as homicide Detective Harry Bosch, Jamie Hector as Jerry Edgar, Amy Aquino as Lt. Grace Billets, Madison Lintz as Maddie Bosch and Lance Reddickas Deputy Chief Irvin Irving.
The series, produced by Fabrik Entertainment, a Red Arrow Studios company, was a breakout when it debuted in 2014 and has been among Amazon’s most popular original series ever since.
“As Amazon Prime Video’s longest-running one-hour series, Bosch has long been a cornerstone of our scripted programming, and Prime members consistently clamor for more,” said Sharon Tal Yguado, Head of Scripted Series, Amazon Studios. “We are excited to give them another season with Harry Bosch, Jerry Edgar, Grace Billets and the rest of the diverse characters that make up the Bosch universe.”
In the ten-episode season four, when an attorney is murdered on the eve of his civil rights trial against the LAPD, Bosch is assigned to lead a task force to solve the crime before the city erupts in a riot. Bosch must pursue every lead, even if it turns the spotlight back on his own department. One murder intertwines with another, and Bosch must reconcile his past to find a justice that has long eluded him.
“I could not be prouder of the show we are making. Bosch is entertaining and relevant to our world today,” said Connelly. “On top of that we have a fantastic writing staff and the cast and crew are the best. We feel we are just hitting our stride. Season four is based on “Angels Flight” and I don’t think we could have chosen a more timely story to tell.”
Overmyer and Pyne executive produce with Fabrik Entertainment CEO Henrik Bastin; Henrik Pabst, President of Red Arrow Studios International, the TV distribution arm of Red Arrow Studios; Pieter Jan Brugge, John Mankiewicz, Connelly, Jan David Frouman and Elle Johnson. Welliver serves as Producer.
