What Book is Bosch: Legacy based on? Let’s find out. Bosch: Legacy is partially inspired by Michael Connelly’s novel The Wrong Side of Goodbye, which also serves as the title for the opening episode, and it also takes cues from how Bosch ended its seven-season run.
In the exciting new series Bosch: Legacy, Titus Welliver reprises his role as Harry Bosch. Bosch: Legacy is a spinoff of the Prime Video series Bosch, which aired for seven seasons and is now available on the free, ad-supported streaming service IMDb TV, which will soon be rebranded as Amazon Freevee.
Bestselling author Michael Connelly created Harry Bosch in a series of books, which were later adapted for the movie by Eric Ellis Overmyer in Bosch. Connelly and Overmyer, as well as longstanding staff writer Tom Bernardo, were all involved in the creation of Bosch: Legacy.

Bosch: Legacy Plot Synopsis and Story
Many fans (including me) were disappointed when it was announced that Bosch, the successful Amazon series based on bestselling author Michael Connelly’s renowned Los Angeles investigator Harry Bosch, would be ending after seven seasons last year.
A spinoff was announced even before the final episode aired. The series Bosch: Legacy is out today, and it’s fantastic. Titus Welliver is back as Harry, and he’s as captivating as ever. He resigned from the Los Angeles Police Department at the end of the first season. The first season of Bosch: Legacy opens up with him settling into a new career as a private investigator.
Harry was at the centre of a big supporting cast in Bosch, which was an ensemble production. The new series centres on Harry and two women: his daughter, Maddie (Madison Lintz), a rookie cop, and Honey “Money” Chandler (Mimi Rogers), a hard-driving defence attorney with whom Harry has a long and tumultuous relationship.
The first 4 episodes of #BoschLegacy are now streaming on @AmazonFreevee and Prime Video. These will be followed by 2 episodes each on the following 3 Fridays, for a total of 10 episodes in season 1. (Bosch: Legacy has already been renewed for season 2!) pic.twitter.com/1PIDo97Rr8

A fourth actor takes the stage as a character who is new to the Bosch universe. As Harry’s IT consultant, Mo Bassi, Stephen Chang is as cool as the other side of the pillow. Bosch is known for being impatient with gadgets, yet he needs them to complete his mission; therefore, Mo is his James Bond. They become friends through jokes and jazz. Setting is a character in both shows, as it is in Connelly’s novels. Bosch: Legacy, like its predecessor, is set in Los Angeles. Harry’s hillside residence, with its magnificent views of the immense metropolis, has always been one of its most essential sites.
An earthquake, however, causes the house to shake, breaking the windows and bending the supports. Harry moves into his new office, which appears to be Philip Marlowe’s old one, after it is found dangerous. Harry is a little scruffier these days, and his independent attitude, which he had been trying to rein in for so long, has sprung free. He’s also adjusting to operating alone rather than with the police force – you have to pick locks to search a place without a warrant.
He now has the freedom to choose his cases, which he enjoys. The primary case in the season is one that strikes a personal chord with Harry, and it is based on Connelly’s 2016 novel The Wrong Side of Goodbye. Whitney Vance (a fantastic William Devane) is a dying billionaire looking for his first love. He was once a college student who fell in love with a young Mexican woman; his Anglo parents forbade him from marrying her, but she remains in his heart. Vance wants to know if he has any successors to whom he may leave his riches, but others in his life would like Bosch to stay out of it, so they play hardball.
Chandler, who was nearly killed by a hit man during the last season of Bosch, also enlists Harry’s help. Resurrection has driven her insane, and she intends to exact vengeance on the man who carried out the hit, even if Russian gangsters try to stop her. Honey and Harry are both mentors to Maddie, who is finding her first year on the force challenging in the wake of a pandemic, riots, and a general lack of faith in policing.
Like her father, she occasionally comes across cases she can’t let go of, such as the rape of a young lady who seeks Maddie’s assistance. Maddie has always been concerned about her father’s deadly work, and now Bosch finds himself in the same situation, resulting in a new degree of bonding between them, played touchingly well by Welliver and Lintz.
The series also features Welliver’s real-life children. His son Eamonn plays the young Harry in a flashback, while his daughter Cora plays the dog walker who assists Bosch in caring for his companion Coltrane. Fans of the Bosch ensemble cast may appreciate several other cameo appearances. Fans will also be pleased to learn that Bosch: Legacy got renewed for a second season earlier this week – especially after watching Episode 10. The only cliffhanger is Harry’s ruined house.
