Harry Bosch actor Titus Welliver confirmed that there wouldn’t be a crossover.
“Well, we can’t, because of the [bifurcated] rights. Lincoln Lawyer is at Netflix and Bosch is at Amazon, so they can’t cross pollinate,” her defined in an interview with TVLine. “But this is something that we’ve all sort of struggled with, and it goes both ways. We’ve had to do the same thing on Bosch with the Haller character.”

“I’m in the writing room [in Lincoln Lawyer and Bosch],” he informed AARP. “That’s really where I can contribute. I don’t know anything about camera angles or lighting or even acting. I don’t get involved in casting; I let people that know way more than me do that kind of stuff. But I do know these characters, so where I can contribute is in the writer’s room. So, yes, I am involved. I wrote episodes on both shows.”
