Fan-Favorite Series Renewed for Seventh Season

All-New Episode Airs Thursday, May 5, on FOX

FOX has renewed the hit series BONES for a seventh season, it was announced today by Kevin Reilly, President of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.

“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,” said Reilly. “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.”

In the all-new “The Signs in the Silence” episode, airing Thursday, May 5 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), a 15-year-old Jane Doe, who is hearing impaired and unable to communicate, is found on the streets covered in blood and wielding a knife, leading the team to believe she is responsible for a recent murder.

BONES is from Far Field Productions and Josephson Entertainment in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series was created by Hart Hanson.

    Love Bones, the best show on tv and the most unappreciated Story lines are the best, the actors make you feel they are real people. Everyone I know watches Bones. Too bad Hollywood does not like normal, good, great stories and acting and ignores such a show. Not one nominee, yet millions of us watch it. T. J. Thyne is such a good actor, how could the emmys not nominate him and yet acknowledge Scott Caan who only plays himslef and could not talk without his hands. Must be nice to be in the “click”.

    I hope this is not another one of those message in abottle endings or Jag relationship. Don’t you people have any relationships that are functional? That would be a new one that people can work together reach a new level in a relationship and make it work. Yes things don’t always have happy endings. But I feel like the media is teaching our children not to follow their heart or gut and that is scary because that is usually correct.

    Well yes good news. But it seemed like this came a little late for how good the show is. Is this coming to an end soon?
