Bosch is Amazon’s longest-running one-hour show.

“I could not be prouder of the show we are making. Bosch is entertaining and relevant to our world today,” Connelly said in a prepared statement released by Amazon. “On top of that we have a fantastic writing staff and the cast and crew are the best. We feel we are just hitting our stride. Season four is based on [his book] Angels Flight, and I don’t think we could have chosen a more timely story to tell.”

Here’s how Amazon describes the upcoming 10-episode season:

“When an attorney is murdered on the eve of his civil rights trial against the LAPD, Bosch is assigned to lead a task force to solve the crime before the city erupts in a riot. Bosch must pursue every lead, even if it turns the spotlight back on his own department. One murder intertwines with another, and Bosch must reconcile his past to find a justice that has long eluded him.”
