That is great to hear.

So... what do him and Maddie go into business as private eyes working for Money?

Streaming on IMDb TV? Why would I want to watch Bosch with commercials?

It appears that Mimi Rogers will be back and her character will be a lead. Her and Bosch will be working together on a case/cases.

My hopes aren't too high considering it will be IMDBTV but any more Bosch is good to have.

I guess because it’ll enable you to watch more new Bosch, which is better than no new Bosch.

I suppose, it's just strange Amazon don't want to stream it on its own platform.

IMDBTV is Amazon's platform.

I do agree with that and wonder why it is being done this way considering it’s all owned by Amazon.

I guess on IMDB TV they are actually getting ad revenue now to help pay for the show and actually make money.

I know a lot of you guys hate commercials and don't watch ad supported streaming services, but if it helps keep it on the air, why not?

Good point. I imagine an 8th season would’ve required new contracts and salary increases. So maybe this was a compromise that benefits everyone by going the ad supported route.

Actually make money? Isn't that what my annual Prime membership fee is for? Putting Amazon original content outside of Prime Video degrades the value of Prime Video, not to mention looks like a sneaky way to effectively add commercials to Prime Video content.

The movies and shows on Prime video are really only a supplemental feature to what it's main purpose is and that's shipping and Amazon related services.

Bosch is entering the 7th season and all the talent contracts as dex said were set to expire. It would have been much more expensive to keep it on Prime and have to give talent and crew raises. This is likely a compromise to keep it on in a another form while earning revenue as well.

Re: Bosch spin-off coming to IMDb TV

While Honey Chandler was a character that didn't survive the only book she was in, this does at least sort of mimic what Harry did after he was too old to be a detective. It's too bad they can't use Haller.

so basically like the books after he leaves force, albeit slightly different. But fuck yes. I will take it all.

This confuses me though. I know Amazon is trying to make IMDB tv a thing but Bosch has been, far and away, their most successful property. Keep it on Prime for fucks sake!

Edit: the contract thing makes sense, though.

Re: Bosch spin-off coming to IMDb TV

As long as it is available on Prime, I can deal with commercials.

I found L.A. Law post-S3 through IMDB on Prime (though missing some eps) - was happy for that.

I would prefer it is on Prime, but looking forward to it. One of my favorite shows

Re: Bosch spin-off coming to IMDb TV

It's apparently a business decision. The costs would be astronomical (or more than what Amazon wants to pay), because everyone would get a giant pay raise (contractually, too) after each season. By moving it to a "different network" the pay structure resets and the spin-off becomes affordable.

Re: Bosch spin-off coming to IMDb TV

If it keeps Bosch on the air and enables everyone to get a raise, I'll endure a few commercials.

What raise? It’s effectively a new show with new contracts airing on unknown streamer.

I doubt, though I could be wrong, that the actors would sign on for a spin-off without some sort of incentive (i.e. a raise).

Re: Bosch spin-off coming to IMDb TV

Welliver posted a photo from the set of the spin-off. Looks like they are at work. Instagram links are dead here once again, so you'll have to click on it.



Just started the final season.

A long time gig is a pretty good incentive for most actors. Mimi Rogers isn't going to be in Lost in Space 2 anytime soon.
