The Future of Zack on Bones

at . Comments

Is Zack ever returning to Bones?

The question is on the minds of numerous fans of this show. Fortunately, Michael Ausiello asked executive producer Hart Hanson for the answer:

"We definitely want to have him back," Hanson said. "But you risk picking that scab too much and people going, 'Aw, bring Zack back forever.'"

Bones + Booth = Humorous, intelligent sexual tension.

Hanson added that the current rotating intern experiment has an expiration date.

"We don't to do the Murphy Brown thing," Hanson said, dating himself and referring to that sitcom's weekly story line of giving its title character a new secretary. "But we're getting a lot of good stories out of these new people coming in and shaking things up in the lab."

Two more interns are on the way, meanwhile: a devout Muslim (played by Pej Vahdat) and someone that is hearing impaired (not yet cast).

I think Zach should stay forever. I almost cried when he left. He was my favorite person.


I am so sad about Zach leaving :'(
I think that if there is any way to bring him back forever, then we should do it hands down. in my opinion, Zach was the best part of the whole show.

Bones Quotes

Booth: I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here, look, um, hey. Do you remember the last time that we were here? Standing right around in this spot? It was right in the beginning before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you because you were irritating me and, uh, you chased me down, and you caught up to me and I said to you 'listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row' and you said to me--
Brennan: I can be a duck.
Booth: Yeah. You know we had been chasing each other for a long time. Chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and snakes. And now chasing you has been the smartest thing that I have ever done in my life. And being chased by you has been my greatest joy. But now, we, uh, we don't have to chase each other anymore because we caught each other.

Worthy of a manger.
