Bosch: Legacy is a ten-part crime thriller which is a spin-off to the Amazon Original Bosch. It follows titular character from the original series Harry Bosch, as he navigates a new chapter of his life after leaving the LAPD and embarking on a career as a private investigator. Alongside Bosch, the series also follows his daughter Maddie as she undergoes the process of training to become an LAPD officer, as well as professional acquaintance Honey Chandler, a big-shot lawyer who Bosch has had many dealings with in the past when he was on the force.

The series picks up where the final season of Bosch left off, and an argument could be made for whether or not there was really any need for it to be rebranded as a spin-off given how similar it is to the original show, plus the continuation of a storyline that dominated the final season. However, the spin-off label is justified in the sense that there is enough change that audiences maybe wouldn’t have taken to it as just another season of Bosch, and with an overall theme of change prevalent throughout this initial run of episodes, the transition from old Bosch to new is pretty seamless.

Will there be a season 2 of the Amazon Prime FreeVee series Bosch: Legacy – renewed or cancelled status

Status: Renewed for season 2

The second season of Bosch: Legacy was announced ahead of its first episodes airing at the start of May. However, at this stage, we can only speculate as to when season 2 may arrive. Michael Connelly – author of the original books and producer on the series – has revealed that production will start later this year, which means that season 2 will most likely be on our screens early to mid-2023 at the earliest.

There’s plenty of scope for where season 2 of Bosch: Legacy could go. Obviously, there are a few threads that aren’t fully tied up at this point which will inevitably be explored further, with Connelly also confirming that his book The Crossing will provide some of the material for new episodes too.

With what we know so far, here’s what could go down in season 2:

  • The Davis case – specifically it’s reverberations throughout the LAPD – will still play quite a significant role. Seeds have been sown already for what it could mean for Bosch and Chandler’s relationship going forward, but I think it will be most interesting to see what the outcome of the civil suit means for Maddie and her career.
  • Of course, there is the whole issue that we don’t actually know where Maddie is currently, thanks to the sinister circumstances in which we last saw her, or didn’t see her, as the case may be. I can only hope that the hunt for Maddie doesn’t dominate season 2; that she is found quickly and – hopefully – safely, and that the overall lasting impact is that whatever experience she is subjected to in the meantime shapes her as a cop. I don’t think we need another of our main characters getting their teeth pulled for another season, nor do I want Bosch to turn into John McClane.
  • I can’t help but feel like we haven’t yet seen the back of the Russians – they seemed to disappear a little too cleanly given the knowledge they had about Bosch and Chandler’s involvement in Carl Rogers’ failure to repay his debts.
  • I also don’t think we got to the bottom of why so much was omitted from the official record of the Basu murder investigation, specifically the meetings Basu was having with the medical board about the over-prescription of opioids by one of his colleagues. There is surely more to this.

    Love Bosch. Always hated the daughter. They should have killed her off instead of the mom. Could give a rats behind about the lawyer. They made her into a sniveling loser for some reason. Renew: I will just fast forward past the junk.
