5 more shows every Bosch fan should check out - and where to watch them

Luther: Idris Elba plays DCI John Luther, a near-genius murder detective whose brilliant mind can't always save him from the dangerous violence of his passions. Produced by the BBC,, like Bosch, Luther is both gritty and ambiguous, that's bolstered by a powerhouse performance from Elba.

The Wire: One of the most influential and critically acclaimed shows of the century so, it's a tense, brutally realistic American crime drama that hosts a wealth of acting talent including the likes of Michael K Williams, Dominic West and Idris Elba. The Wire will be of particular interest to Bosch fans as show runner Eric Overmayer was a key part of the writing team for the fourth season - and Bosch's sidekick is Jamie Hector, aka Marlo Stanfield.

Better Call Saul: If Ozark is the spiritual successor to Breaking Bad, then chances are you'll love its prequel, Better Call Saul. Charting the early career of crooked lawyer Saul Goodman (née Jimmy McGill) , it's also the work of Vince Gilligan and has no less than five seasons to it's name, so there's plenty of binge-watching potential here.

  • Watch in the US: Buy seasons 1-5 on Fadango Now, stream seasons 1-4 on Netflix, or stream new episodes for free via AMC
  • Watch in the UK: Stream all seasons on Netflix or buy from Amazon Prime Video

Fargo: Noah Hawley’s riff on the Coen brothers' classic 1996 movie features more tales of Minnesotans gone bad and features a superb cast across all three of its self-contained seasons: Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Kirsten Dunst, Ewan McGregor, Colin Hanks and Ted Danson are just some of the stars to feature. 

Breaking Bad: We've already mentioned Breaking Bad once, but no list of the best shows for Bosch fans would be complete without mentioning it in full. It's the plot similarities that are most striking, with both shows depicting the downward spiral of a family man who - desperate for money - embraces a life of crime where the end game is always in sight, yet always just out of reach.
