It’s been just over a month since Amazon released its original drama series Bosch via the Prime Instant Video streaming service, and the program has already been renewed for a second season, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Bosch is based on the best-selling book series Harry Bosch by Michael Connelly. It stars Titus Welliver (LOST, Sons of Anarchy) as the title character, a homicide detective, who finds himself in the midst of a wild goose chase after a man who confesses to killing a young boy escapes and sets out on a killing spree.

Bosch is the second original series from Amazon to really turn heads – Transparent, starring Jeffrey Tambor, has won and been nominated for a slew of awards, and has largely been lauded by critics. Bosch has reportedly set a record for Amazon as the biggest weekend debut in its original series lineup. It has, according to THW, become the most-watched show on the service.

The script for season 2 of Bosch will follow along with the book series, with all of the major actors – including Welliver – returning to reprise their roles. Connelly will also continue as executive producer, along with Eric Overmyer, Henrik Bastin, and Pieter Jan Brugge. Connelly promises that the second season will focus on more exploration of the Bosch character. The main plot storyline will involve the murder of a Hollywood producer with ties to the mob; as well as a serial killer who has threatened Bosch’s daughter and ex-wife.

If Amazon continues on this roll, it’ll be a real contender for leader in the streaming TV original series category. (That category doesn’t yet exist on any major award show, but just wait, it’s inevitable.) And with 19 books in total in the Harry Bosch series, plus Connelly on staff with the TV adaptation, there’s plenty of material and opportunity to keep this show running for quite some time.

Everything you need to know about the Fallout show on Amazon Prime Video

Video game adaptations were wildly successful in 2023, including The Super Mario Bros. Movie, The Last of Us, and the Twisted Metal series. To kick off this year's gaming adaptations, Amazon Prime Video is premiering a new original series called Fallout, which is based on the hit video game franchise from Bethesda Softworks. Prime Video rarely goes small for something like this, and the Fallout TV series has a massive scale that most shows simply can't match.

The first thing that you need to know about Fallout is that you don't need to be familiar with the games to watch or enjoy the show. It's not based on any single game in particular, and it draws from several of the Fallout titles to shape the narrative of the show. But it can't hurt to have a little bit of background information before you're thrown into the wild postapocalyptic landscape of the series. That's why we've put together this roundup of everything you need to know about Fallout on Prime Video.
Who's on the creative team behind Fallout?
Prime Video brought out its big guns for Fallout: Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. The co-creators of HBO's Westworld signed on to produce the Fallout series in 2020, and Nolan is directing the first three episodes. Nolan and Joy are executive producers on the series, but the showrunners are Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner, both of whom are credited as the creators of the show.

3 great Amazon Prime Video TV shows to watch instead of the 2024 Oscars

The 2024 Oscars aren't for everyone. You can be a movie fan and not really care for the red carpet interviews, the long victory speeches, the cheesy musical numbers, or the tribute to those who passed away in the past year that's always a downer.

If that's the case, and you're looking for some good TV shows to watch, just head over to Amazon Prime Video. It has a lot of shows, but there are three in particular that are worth your time. One is a 2024 show that just debuted, another is one of 2023's most underrated series, and the final one is a sci-fi series that should appeal to fans of Denis Villeneuve's Dune movies.
