Back in 2014, we teased at the tenth and final season of Bones. Thankfully, we've gotten another season out of the beloved Fox show; however, it is with a heavy heart we report the newly confirmed twelfth and final season.
If we're being completely honest, the show's been a bit of a downer since Sweets got shot.
The final season, promising twelve episodes, will give us fans the "meaningful and satisfying conclusion" we've been waiting for ever since we saw sparks fly between Brennan and Booth.
According to TVLine, the final twelve episodes will bring the Fox favourite to a grand total of 246 episodes on the air.
Executive Producers Jonathan Collier and Michael Peterson sat down to discuss their decision in detail: “We couldn’t be more thrilled to have another season, so we can give the show, characters, and fans the end they so richly deserve. Also knowing there is a Season 12, we can now write the most rewarding Season 11 finale possible — one we hope will leave our fans excited for what’s to come in this final season of Bones.”
Hart Hanson, the series creator, added: “In times like these, marked by instability and doubt, it’s comforting to know the world can count on at least one dependable beacon of stability. Apparently, that beacon is Bones. It just shows what you can do with an amalgam of genius cast, amazing crew, cunning writers, stalwart studio, sweat, a tough economy, a mercurial network, determination, luck, magic, miracles, and the most loyal audience in the world.”
Does this mean we'll get to see Daisy and her child well provided for? Will we get to see Jack and Angela see his invention on the shelf at the supermarket?
David B and Emily D thanked fans for their continued support and viewership in statements on the official Fox website.
“This is for the fans! Thank you to everyone at Fox and, of course, Dana and Gary – for all your support,” said Boreanaz. “Thank you to Hart, Stephen, Ian [Toynton], Michael, and Jonathan. Also to the crew and cast for their countless support along the way! And I couldn’t have done it without you, Emily!”
“I am thrilled the show will have the ending it deserves for all of our amazing, loyal fans!,” added Deschanel.
Bones will return for its final season this Spring on April 14.
