Bones is returning for an eighth series, Fox have confirmed.
In a statement, the company said it was “really happy to have this distinctive, fan-favorite on our schedule for another season”.
“Over the past seven seasons, Hart Hanson, Stephen Nathan and the incredible ‘Bones’ cast and crew have redefined the traditional crime procedural with an irreverent and adventurous sensibility,” Kevin Reilly, President of Entertainment at Fox Broadcasting Company said.
Bones is a darkly amusing procedural centered on a highly skilled forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan (Emily Deschanel) who can read clues left behind in victims’ bones and FBI agent Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz).
These unlikely partners take on homicide cases involving human remains that most forensic specialists can’t handle. The series also stars TJ Thyne, Michaela Conlin, Tamara Taylor and John Francis Daley.
