Long time running crime procedural drama “Bones” still ha sless than a month before it comes back from its hiatus. Although the long break is arguably frustrating, Fox recently announced that the show is already renewed for a 12<sup>th season. The only catch is that, it will also be the last for the show and it will only have 12 episodes instead of its usual 22.
“‘Bones’ has been part of the fabric of our network and studio for over a decade, and during that time it has attracted one of the most devoted fan bases we’ve ever seen,” revealed Fox Co-Chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman in an article published by Variety.
“So it was extremely important to us and to Hart, the producers and the cast that we send the show off in a way that gives those loyal fans a meaningful and satisfying conclusion.”
The show which first donned the airwaves in 2005 is top-billed by Emily Deschanel who plays forensic genius Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan and David Boreanaz as FBI Agent Seeley Booth. Both actors have dabbed in the production along the years and now they serve as co-producers for the show.
“This is for the fans! Thank you to everyone at Fox and, of course, Dana and Gary for all your support,” Boreanaz said adding that he could have not done it without partner, Deschanel.
Deschanel, on the other hand, revealed that she is thrilled to know that they will be able to have a proper send off for the show making sure that there are no loose ends by the end of season 12.
In the meantime, “Bones” season 11 will continue with episode 11 titled “The Death in the Defense” airing on April 14. In a report by Carter Matt, the second half of the season will put Hodgins (T.J Thyne) in the spotlight as he goes through a very traumatic situation after everything that transpired in the midseason finale.
