The latest and final season of “Bosch” begins and ends with a bang – figuratively and literally! A horrible fire started by a Molotov cocktail kicks off episode one, while episode eight closes out with a gunshot. And there are a lot of big changes along the way for most of the characters involved. The storyline proved a satisfying conclusion for Amazon’s longest-running original series, based upon best-selling author Michael Connelly’s popular book franchise, and nicely teed up the upcoming spin-off set to air on the platform’s sister streamer, IMDb TV.
The spin-off will not only feature much of the same creative team, like Connelly, but a few of the main stars, as well, including Titus Welliver who will resume his role as tireless-justice-fighter Hieronymus “Harry” Bosch. The new show (spoiler alert for those who have yet to watch season seven!) will see the LAPD detective-turned-private-eye working with his longtime-adversary-turned-ally, high-powered lawyer Honey Chandler (Mimi Rogers). CEO of Fabel Entertainment Henrik Bastin told The Hollywood Reporter, “While the spinoff will be a new show with its distinct voice and tone, our passionate fans will feel right at home.”
As Connelly excitedly announced via Instagram, filming is already underway for the as-of-yet untitled series, which the author states will have the “same DNA” as its predecessor. That DNA hopefully includes an endless parade of stellar locations, as was the case with the original. From Harry’s spectacular Hollywood Hills stilt home to the idyllic Mid-Wilshire Mission Revival that Chief Irvin Irving (Lance Reddick) shared with Jun Park (Linda Park), “Bosch” became known for showcasing some incredible Southern California real estate. The latest season was no different, introducing audiences to many new spectacular sites, none more so than the gorgeous Italianate mansion belonging to Honey. With multiple archways, an ornate split outdoor staircase and a towering façade, the place grabbed my attention immediately!
