Prime Video announced today that a new Bosch spinoff has been ordered to series. Only known so far as the Untitled Renée Ballard project, the series will follow Detective Renée Ballard, who is tasked with running the LAPD's new cold case division - a poorly funded, all-volunteer unit with the largest case load in the city.

Based on the work by New York Times best-selling author Michael Connelly, the drama is the second Bosch spinoff, joining 'Bosch: Legacy,' which is going into its third season at Amazon Freevee.

Prime Video has ordered 10 episodes for the new spinoff, which will see Detective Ballard approach cold cases with empathy and determination. When she uncovers a larger conspiracy during her investigations, she will rely on the assistance of her retired ally, Harry Bosch, to navigate the dangers that threaten both her unit and her life.

"From books to screen, Michael Connelly creates authentic and suspenseful stories, led by distinctive characters who make audiences care and connect. Renée Ballard is one of those characters. She instantly captivated readers with hints of a troubled past and a protective layer of idiosyncrasies she developed to survive. We look forward to expanding the Bosch universe with Michael and introducing viewers to Ballard's personal approach to pursuing justice," said Lauren Anderson, head of AVOD originals, unscripted, and targeted programming at Amazon MGM Studios.
