Books and Seasons
Bosch‘s final season on Amazon Prime Video is inspired by novels The Concrete Blonde and The Burning Room. These books set Bosch and his partner Jerry Edgar (Jamie Hector) on two separate paths, from white-collar crime to street-level drug trade.
The novels break into seasons as follows:
- Michael Connolly’s City of Bones and Echo Park novels inspired Season 1.
- His books, Trunk Music, The Drop, and The Last Coyote inspired Season 2.
- Season 3 took inspiration from The Black Echo and A Darkness More Than Night.
- The fourth season took inspiration from the novel Angels Flight.
- Season 5, which premiered in 2019, took inspiration from the novel Two Kinds of Truth.
- Season 6, which premieres on Amazon Prime Video later this year, took inspiration from The Overlook and Dark Sacred Night novels.
