From October 20th, the second season of the successful series “Bosch: Legacy” will start on Freevee, which is a successor series to “Bosch” from Prime Video and is based on the popular novels by author Michael Connelly (“The Lincoln Lawyer”).
What is the plot of the second season of “Bosch: Legacy”?
In the first season of “Bosch: Legacy,” Hieronymus “Harry” Bosch (Titus Welliver) picked up where the seventh season of “Bosch” left off. He retired from the LAPD and worked as a private investigator for defense attorney Honey “Money” Chandler (Mimi Rogers). . Harry begins investigating businessman Carl Rogers (Michael Rose), who previously hired a hitman to kill Chandler in the final season of Bosch. Meanwhile, Bosch’s daughter Maddie (Madison Lintz) experiences her first days as a patrol officer with the LAPD, working out of the Hollywood Station where her father was previously stationed.
The first season of Bosch: Legacy ended with Maddie being kidnapped by a serial rapist she was investigating, and Season 2 begins with Bosch and his former partner Jerry Edgar (Jamie Hector) leading the manhunt for Maddie. The rest of the season is based on Connelly’s book “The Crossing” and ties up open questions from both series.
Who is in the cast of Bosch: Legacy season 2?
Season 2 of “Bosch: Legacy” offers an exciting and personal arc for the main character while also bringing back some familiar faces from the “Bosch” universe. Titus Welliver returns with another powerful and impressive performance as Harry Bosch, desperately searching for his missing daughter.
Plot and character arcs
The first season of Bosch: Legacy ended with the kidnapping of Madeline Bosch (Lintz), and the new season begins following that event. Harry Bosch (Welliver) is no longer a police officer and finds himself in unfamiliar territory. Unable to lead the hunt for his daughter, he must rely on his old partner Jerry Edgar (Hector) and the rest of the LAPD to rescue Maddie. Of course, Bosch isn’t about to waste a moment and clashes with Jerry and other members of the LAPD along the way, eventually taking matters into his own hands and recruiting Honey Chandler (Rogers) and Mo Bassi (Chang) to help him with his Search.
The plot of “Search for Maddie” spans two episodes and is essentially a “Bosch” film. In fact, the first two episodes will be released in theaters so fans can watch them on the big screen. Although the plot is somewhat reminiscent of “Taken,” it feels fresh and original for the series and is played with urgency by Welliver. The character he created and the relationship with Maddie that we grew over the seven seasons of the original Bosch series and the first season of Legacy are crucial to making this storyline work. It’s an entertaining and surprisingly emotional start to the new season, which nicely concludes the cliffhanger of the first season. The rest of the season follows Michael Connolly’s “The Crossing” and presents Bosch and Chandler with a new challenge while tying up loose ends from the previous season.
Titus Welliver is Harry Bosch
Before “Bosch,” Titus Welliver was a journeyman actor best known for roles in “Deadwood,” “Lost,” “Sons of Anarchy,” and Ben Affleck films like “Gone Baby Gone” and “The Town.” But playing the title character in “Bosch” and now “Bosch: Legacy” has made Welliver a household name and a bona fide TV star. Welliver plays Michael Connolly’s beloved literary character and has found depth and new layers in the role, bringing him to life on screen in an authentic and captivating way.
It’s a perfect marriage of actor and character and that continues in the new season of “Legacy.” Welliver feels comfortable in the role and delivers a confident and emotional performance, especially in the first episodes. It’s one of those rare moments when an actor plays a role so believably that you forget they’re playing the part and really start to believe they’re the character. Harry Bosch is Titus Welliver’s signature role and his performance as the character will forever be synonymous with the actor’s work.
