The long-running crime drama followed the partnership between Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan (Emily Deschanel), a part-time novelist and a highly-skilled forensic anthropologist, and FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz). The cast also included Michaela Conlin, T.J. Thyne, Eric Millegan, Tamara Taylor, Michaela Conlin, John Francis Daley, Patricia Belcher, and David Greenman.
In the interview, Hanson said a Bones reunion would be a lot of fun:
You never know what people will say yes to, and getting everybody together again, getting the band together would be a lot of fun. I’ll say this: There are no big personal things to get over. To get together again, and I would be the last person to speak for everyone, but in a couple years or something, it might be a lot of fun to get the band back together again and see what we could do.”
He later mentioned that if there were a reunion, it might be something like a movie:
I imagine it would be…well, you just don’t know, do you? We just don’t know. I have no idea, but I’m going to say right now it would seem more likely that a one long-form thing would happen. But, again, you just don’t know, and by the way, there may be no appetite for it. You know shows…
And what would the revival be about? Hanson said he doesn’t have a specific idea but he does have notes from over the years:
I don’t have that, but I have what the writers and most of the people on Bones know I refer to as my bin. I have a bin with stuff in it, but no, there’s no script, there’s no story idea.
There’s notes and notions in a bin that you just keep over the years. It’s like having a shoe box full of scraps of paper that you write down ideas on, and it’ll be put away on an external hard drive — I won’t look at it unless someday someone says, do you have anything, and then I’ll go and see if we do, or we’ll come up with something new because you just don’t know. You just don’t know.
And they may never ask. You know, you know as well as I do there are shows that are big and noisy and popular, and then they go off the air and it’s shocking how quickly they drop off the map, and we don’t know if we’re one of those or not.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Bones? Did you enjoy the finale? Would you watch a reunion?
