There’s good news and bad news for fans of the Bones TV show on FOX. The long-running crime drama has been renewed for a 12th season but that will be the show’s final run and there will only be a dozen episodes.
Bones revolves around a married couple who use their skills as an FBI agent (David Boreanaz) and a forensic anthropologist (Emily Deschanel) to solve difficult cases. The show’s cast also includes Michaela Conlin, Tamara Taylor, TJ Thyne, and John Boyd.
Both Boreanaz and Deschanel are set to return for the final season — as are executive producers and showrunners Jonathan Collier and Michael Peterson.
In a statement, the showrunners said, “We couldn’t be more thrilled to have another season, so we can give the show, characters and fans the end they so richly deserve. Also knowing there is a Season 12, we can now write the most rewarding Season 11 finale possible — one we hope will leave our fans excited for what’s to come in this final season of Bones.”
Series creator Hart Hanson noted, “In times like these, marked by instability and doubt, it’s comforting to know the world can count on at least one dependable beacon of stability. Apparently, that beacon is Bones. It just shows what you can do with an amalgam of genius cast, amazing crew, cunning writers, stalwart studio, sweat, a tough economy, a mercurial network, determination, luck, magic, miracles and the most loyal audience in the world.”
What do you think? Do you like the Bones TV show? Do you think that season 12 should be the end? Would you watch a 13th season or, should it have been cancelled this year?
