Michael Peterson spoke with TV Insider about the final season in a new interview, and he shared his excitement about season 12.
He said the following about what fans can expect as Bones closes out its run:
“What we’re really excited about for Season 12, and what we did when we went to Fox and said,’”Hey, we want and really need a 12th season’—and they were so great to give it to us—‘[because] we want to have Bones go out the right way.’
One of the things David Boreanaz told us at the beginning of the season when [co-showrunner] Jon [Collier] and I took over the show as showrunners is to go back and watch that first season, and look at the magic that happened there; that dynamic between the characters, and grab as much of that feeling as you can. While watching that first season, we kind of saw some arcs that had been started that we never quite finished. When we went in and talked to Fox, we talked to them entirely about character: where we need Booth and Brennan to go to, and we need this whole season to finish off personal arcs that are hinted at in the first season.”
Bones has become a staple of FOX’s primetime line-up. It has moved from timeslot to timeslot over the years, but its loyal fans have stayed with the show. FOX is giving this series a proper send-off, which so many shows do not see on television these days.
