'Bones' season 12 air date, spoilers: cast, producers tease final season


The long running hit TV series “Bones” will be back for its twelfth season and also, this new and upcoming season would be the final one for the show and will serve to wrap the story up.

Now that the story of Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) would see a conclusion to it, the cast and producers of the show talked about what fans could expect from the final season, what they want to happen as part of their wish list, and what the cast expects to happen to their respective characters as the story draws to an end after more than a decade.

In an interview with PASTE magazine, “Bones” producers Jonathan Collier and Michael Peterson talked about the return of Eric Millegan’s Dr. Zack Addy, and teased that the upcoming season would have more of him.

“I’m not sure if it’s the way fans wanted us to do it, but the story is not done yet,” Collier said. “We’re probably gonna bring him back for three or four more episodes next year, and there’s a lot to be told.”

“It’s very cool, I’m really excited,” actress Michaela Conlin, who plays Angela Montenegro, added. “I think he has more to do in Season 12.”

On the other hand, Deschanel and Boreanaz teased that there would be a number of previous stars of the show that might be returning for the final season as guest stars though at this time, they cannot point to any specific names.

Additionally, Dr. Cam Saroyan (Tamara Taylor) and Dr. Arastoo Vaziri (Pej Vahdat) will be getting married. However, the upcoming season will not just be all happy moments as there would be character deaths in the final season. Who would it be?

“I think we lose a couple characters,” said actor T.J. Thyne, who plays Dr. Jack Hodgins. “At least two. A couple of deaths.”

“Bones” returns to FOX in 2017.
