The long-running police procedural drama based on the novels of Michael Connelly, Bosch, will return in a new spinoff, Bosch: Legacy. The new series will pick up what the original series left off from its seventh and final season which premiered last June 2021. The same cast will reprise their roles including Titus Welliver as Los Angeles Police detective Harry Bosch; Mimi Rogers as the civil rights attorney, Honey “Money” Chandler; and Madison Lintz as Harry’s daughter and LAPD’s rookie patrol officer, Maddie Bosch. 

Bosch Season 7 Recap

To recap the seventh and final season of Bosch, Harry Bosch has lost faith in the organization he works in which prompted him to resign from his post. The ending shows him applying to become a private investigator (a totally predictable career choice for an ex-cop). However, to his surprise, his daughter also makes a monumental career change. Instead of doing the college-to-law-school route, Maddie Bosch signs up to join the police force hoping to follow in her father’s iconic footsteps. Now we see our reformed ex-cop protagonist stuck in a situation where he has to support his cop daughter while also ACAB-ing his old job and boss. This storyline alone makes us want to see a Thanksgiving episode. 

Moving away from the Boschs, Honey Chandler was eager to put Carl Rogers to justice but found herself in danger when Rogers’ hired killers shot her. This resulted in Chandler being put into a medically induced coma due to the assassination attempt.

Bosch: Legacy, a Bosch Spinoff

Bosch: Legacy will pick up where Bosch left off—with Harry working as a private eye in Los Angeles. It will also focus on his unlikely partnership with Honey Chandler as the two try to put Carl Rogers behind bars. Furthermore, Maddie’s new career as a police officer will also be a focus of the show. It will follow Maddie and her partner, Reina Vasquez (Denise Sanchez), as they patrol the streets of Los Angeles. 

Bosch: Legacy Trailer

The extended trailer starts with Harry telling Maddie that “legacy matters.” It also features Maddie’s narration of his father’s and her new career, “sometimes the system fails…but his [Harry] code, never has…and that’s why I want to follow his footsteps.”
