‘Bosch’ to get new life on IMDb TV


You have questions. I have some answers.

I just completed streaming the series “Bosch.” Even though the seventh season was labeled as the final season, it sure ended as if setting up a sequel. What are the future plans?

The detective drawn from the novels of Michael Connelly will indeed have a new TV life, in a series to stream on IMDb TV sometime in 2022. To be called “Bosch: Legacy,” the series picks up about two years after the end of the “Bosch” series, according to an interview with Connelly in the Tampa Bay Times. “It will focus on three characters from the original series: Bosch (Titus Welliver), now working as a private detective; Honey ‘Money’ Chandler (Mimi Rogers), who last time we saw her was a high-powered defense attorney who’d been the victim of a murder attempt; and Bosch’s daughter, Maddie (Madison Lintz), who is now an officer with the LAPD,” the Tampa Bay Times said. “Some of the plot arc will carry over from the final season of ‘Bosch,’ Connelly said, but his 2016 novel ‘The Wrong Side of Goodbye’ will be the basis for much of the season.”

Will anyone ever rerun “The New Detectives”? The voice of Gene Galusha as narrator is worth it. (I know he died in 2008, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to hear him again). The programs were much like “Forensic Files” and were very interesting to me.

The forensic science series, which originally aired from 1996 to 2004, has many homes for its repeats. These include the True Crime Network, a broadcast channel often used as a secondary digital service by broadcasters. (You can find its location in your area at

Episodes of the series also stream on Hulu (which has a subscription fee), Tubi and Pluto TV.

Why is “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” absent from TV screens? I’ve never loved a series as much as I’ve loved this gem.

As some of the other answers in this column have indicated, what gets to our TV screens no longer comes just from broadcast or cable. An abundance of programming, new and old, is now found on streaming services, and the 1970-77 Moore series is on both Amazon Prime Video and Hulu, with fees attached. The series has also been released on DVD — and you may be able to find the discs through your local library to save a few bucks.
