Titus Welliver is back on the case as Harry Bosch in the brand new series Bosch: Legacy. A spinoff of the Prime Video series Bosch that ran for seven seasons, Bosch: Legacy is also making the jump for Prime Video to the free, ad-supported streaming service Amazon Freevee.

Harry Bosch was created by bestselling author Michael Connelly in a series of books and then brought to the screen by Eric Ellis Overmyer in Bosch. Connelly and Overmyer were both involved in creating Bosch: Legacy, along with longtime staff writer Tom Bernardo.

Here is everything that you need to know about Bosch: Legacy.

Bosch: Legacy is loosely based on Connelly’s book The Wrong Side of Goodbye, which serves as the first episode’s title; it also is taking its cues from how Bosch ended its seven season run. Here is the official synopsis:

"Bosch: Legacy follows former LAPD detective Harry Bosch as he begins a new chapter as a private investigator. His first job calls him to the estate of ailing billionaire Whitney Vance, where Bosch is tasked with finding Vance’s only potential heir. Along the way, Bosch finds himself clashing with powerful figures who have a vested interest in the heir not being found. Researching the family tree, Bosch uncovers shocking revelations that span generations, all while billions of dollars remain on the line. Without the badge and a preference for old-school tactics, Bosch finds an invaluable resource in Maurice 'Mo' Bassi, a tech-forward gadget whiz who shares Bosch’s commitment to justice and fondness for smooth jazz.

"Honey 'Money' Chandler, reeling from the mistrial of Carl Rogers, is determined to bring Rogers to justice. In an unlikely alliance, Chandler and Bosch team up to conquer Rogers. But he has a long list of enemies, including the Russian Bratva, who are growing impatient on a promise Rogers made them.

"Following in her father’s footsteps, Maddie Bosch, a rookie patrol officer with the LAPD, is paired with Reina Vasquez, a no-nonsense, hard-charging training officer. As Maddie patrols the streets of Los Angeles, she grapples with what kind of cop she wants to be. Her father — who continues to live by the code that everybody counts, or nobody counts — believes the issue is clear: Being a cop is either a mission or just a job."
