Fox Planning Bones Spinoff Around New Character

by at . Comments

Fox is working on a series that revolves around a new character who will be introduced on Bones December 6, according to new reports. His name? Walter Sherman.

The star of this potential Bones spinoff is described as "skeptical of everything" and "an eccentric but amusing recluse in high demand for his ability to find anything."

"He suffered brain damage while overseas, which explains his constant paranoia, and is known for asking offensive, seemingly irrelevant questions to get to the truth."

Choices, Choices

The potential Bones spinoff's lead character shares a past with Seeley.

Walter is also a former military policeman who served with Booth in Iraq, but they don't get along. Dr. Brennan, meanwhile, will be intrigued by Walter when he first appears.

Turning the tables on him a little in the wake of Hannah's introduction, is she?

The character is expected to recur on Bones throughout this season, with the future of his own spinoff series contingent on whether a suitable actor is found to play Walter.

Hart Hanson, creator of Bones, is spearheading this project as well. Thoughts? Sound like an intriguing idea to you, or a waste of time? Chime in below with your comments.

I truly believe this spin off is brilliant. Love the characters, they are known liked actors and add a touch of wittiness. Please definitely go for it - the audience is out there! I do not agree that this is a trend, but a unique show that will have a lot of following.
PLEASE DO IT!

Agreed The spin off will potentially end bones and us loyal fans don't want that to happen. Why doesn't the writers worry about what's going to happen between booth and bones and stop worrying about stupid spin offs. Just sayyyinnnn

I agree with Stevie. It will ruin Bones.

I don't think this spin off is a good idea. Look at all the shows with spinoffs--I mean, let's face it. Every CBS show that's been around longer than four seasons has a spinoff (or a spinoff of a spinoff). Fox does not need to follow the trend, because one can only take so many spinoffs before one stops watching. Walter seems to be a combination of Jane from The Mentalist and Langston from CSI. And, not only that, but Bones seems to be past its peak--which gives me the impression that the spinoff would do just what the latest Law and Order spinoff has done--replace the original. So, my case in point, DON'T DO IT!

Bones Quotes

Booth: Come on Christine, if you want to be a big girl, you gotta eat your breakfast. It's good for you.
Christine: Mommy says size is determined genetically.

You look beautiful.

Brennan [to Samantha]
