Fox Renews Bones for Seventh Season
Booth and Brennan are coming back for more!
After a series of 11th hour negotiations, Fox's fan-favorite drama Bones has been renewed for a seventh season.
Though the network officially confirmed the news Tuesday, series star David Boreanaz jumped the gun and tweeted his excitement over the renewal. "Season 7 is GO for Bones," the actor, 41, blogged Monday night.
"Bones is creatively fresh, it's a rock-solid player every time it airs and this season it has helped us win on Thursday nights for the first time in our history," Fox's President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly tells Us Weekly in a statement. "Hart Hanson and the fantastic cast and crew, as well as the millions of loyal Bones fans, make this show really special, and I'm excited to have it on our air for another stellar season."
While season 7 is a lock, how and if star Emily Deschanel's real-life pregnancy will impact the series remains to be seen.
"I'm ready to pitch a bunch of alternatives," Hanson told reporters in April, one month after Deschanel, 34, and her writer-actor hubby David Hornsby, announced they were expecting.
Speaking of storyline plans, Hanson tells Us he's hard at work at potential new series Finder, featuring Geoff Stults as Walter, a quirky soldier turned detective who appeared on Bones' April 21 episode.
"Finder has a unique light tone," Hanson says. "It's possible Fox will want to replicate Bones' success with this show." The decision will be announced this month.
