Bones is renewed for a ninth season. Fox announced the early pickup of their flagship drama Tuesday morning during the Television Critics Association press tour.
The shows renewal is contingent upon getting contract renewals for Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz. When asked earlier in the year about a ninth season, in a tweet, Boreanaz stated anything could happen. Showrunner Hart Hanson is confident their negotiations will lead to an agreement.
“After more than 150 episodes, Bones continues to be one of television’s most dynamic and consistent dramas,” said Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, at Fox. “We at Fox, along with millions of zealous fans, look forward to seeing where the incredible creative team takes the series next season.”
I think it ok now to say that Bones is renewed for Season 9. That makes it the longest running show in history – that depends on bones.
Clique Clack catches up with Bones executive producer Stephen Nathan and star David Boreanaz in the Comic Con 2012 Press Room following their panel.
Stephen Nathan tells us Pelant will be a dark cloud over the lives of Booth and Brennan and the staff of the Jeffersonian throughout Season 8. Brennan has now found herself replaying the life of choices her father, Max once had to make. The situation with Brennan will be resolved so she can return to the show cleared of any wrong doing but she will also have to reconcile with Booth. Is love enough?
Where does David Boreanaz draw the intense, complex emotions he portrays in Booth? Will he be directing more episodes this season? Has directing affected the way he approaches his character? How important is it for him to broaden his career by working on other projects? His favorite stand alone episode was the Holloywood film. Will season 8 be his last?
