Despite a ratings dip, Bones was not cancelled after season 10. FOX renewed Bones for season 11. Now, E! is breaking news that star David Boreanaz (Angel) is looking forward to a series wrap, at least for his character, Booth. There has been no response yet, from Brennan’s alter-ego, co-star Emily Deschanel (Providence). Bones season 11 premieres tonight on FOX. Is this the beginning of the end?
…if Boreanaz has his way, the 11th season of Bones will be the last. “For me, personally, I think it’s time. I think that 11 seasons is great,” he explained. “I mean, one season is great! I don’t really count it as seasons but what we’ve given to the show and what we can do, for me it’s great to see the show come to an end and do it the way we want to do it.”
The E! breaking news item adds:
It does make sense that the show could be taking a victory lap of sorts. It’s been around for more than 10 years, and has performed well in nearly as many time slots. But there’s only so long it can go on. So when asked to clarify if yes, this truly is the end of the road for Booth and Brennan, Boreanaz confirmed: “For me it’s a yes.”
What do you think? Are you tuning in for tonight’s season premiere? Do you think Bones could continue without Boreanaz?
