With the end in sight – only three episodes remaining – the cast of Bones (FOX’ Tuesdays, 9/8C) has released a twenty minute video reminiscing about their time on the show, and thanking fans for their perseverance in following them from timeslot to timeslot over the show’s 12-year run.
Bones has long been one of FOX’s most highly regarded utility players – every time the show moves (and that has been fairly frequently) its fans follow it, generating solid enough ratings to take it to its twelfth and final season.
When the final season’s twelve episodes begin, fans are promised a host of nods – fan favorite guest stars and squinterns are only the beginning.
Bones: Season Twelve premieres on Tuesday, January 3, 2017. Read on for hints of the rewards that lie in store for loyal fans.
With two episodes to go in season nine, the stars of Bones (Fox, Mondays, 8/7C) took some time to talk with a group of journalists/bloggers about what lies in store for Bones and Booth. They addressed this week’s introduction of a new squintern – played by Laura Spencer – and a season finale that includes a Congressional hearing and has huge ramifications for everyone.
They also talked about how they keep things fresh after nine seasons and how they deal with bad days. For a short Q&A, it was a lot of fun.
FOX’s long-running series Bones [returning Thursday, 9/8C] has taken the forensic procedural in a unique direction with its oil and water lead characters – the brilliant, cerebral, rational forensic anthropologist, Dr. Temperance Brennan and the intuitive, physical and determined FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth. You would expect, then, that a Q&A session with the show’s executive producers, Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan, would be a lot of fun. You would not be wrong.
Last week I had the opportunity to take part in a teleconference call with Hanson [co-creator] and. The Q&A session covered such topics as how Emily Deschanel’s pregnancy inspired and affected the decision to have her character, Dr. Temperance Brennan become pregnant; how, exactly, the decision was reached to write out beloved ‘squintern’ Vincent Nigel-Murray [played so endearingly by Ryan Cartwright], and much, much more.
The fifth season premiere of Bones [Fox, Thursdays, 8/7C] finds things a bit off kilter for Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan [Emily Deschanel] and FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth [David Boreanaz]. It’s six weeks since Booth has come out of his coma [see season four’s finale, The End in the Beginning] and he’s pretty certain he loves Bones – but then, he’s forgotten that he rebels against authority in subtle ways like wearing goofy socks and loud ties. Meanwhile, Bones has been introduced to professed psychic, Avalon Harmonia [Cyndi Lauper], who tells her that many bodies lie beneath a certain fountain.
