Bones: Renewed For Season Seven!

at . Comments

It's official. Bones has been renewed for a seventh season.

A David Boreanaz Tweet confirmed the news, which seemed all but certain for the quirky show that, while criticized of late, remains very popular and well-rated.

Bones creator Hart Hanson has said he's still not sure if or how the show will incorporate Emily Deschanel's pregnancy if a seventh season were green-lighted.

Guess he'll have to write in something good now, although maybe he already has. The Season Six finale, set for May 19, is called "The Change in the Game."

A pregnant Brennan would be a big change. Just saying ...

I have loved and enjoyed Bones since the first season. I did enjoy season 6 and was saddened and shocked by which intern got killed off. I can't wait for season 7 and I have been wanting booth and brennan to get together since season 2.

I hope one change is that Emily Deschanel, or at least Bones, gets rid of that appalling haircut. It is too sophisticated for Brennan, and it was jarring to see the character come back from six months in the jungles of Asia, and promptly get that haircut. It is not Bones, and it is very irritating. I have never gotten used to it, because it so much does not fit the character. Of course, the character has changed a lot this season, but she has not gotten more sophisticated in a way that would make that style logical. If they do not fix the serious problems they created this season, I don't see Bones lasting beyond next season. It used to be wonderful. Now it looks amateurish in a lot of ways. The actors still do not seem very invested in their characters any more, either. Deschanel's laughter as Bones is often hysterical, and sounds forced and false. I don't believe that was the intention; it generally does not follow from the scene that she is forcing a laugh. It just comes out that way. I can't imagine she has forgotten to act, so I am confused. They need to figure out a way to bring back Zack for his yearly visit. Those episodes are usually pretty good, any way. The one group still doing stellar work is that company which makes the corpses for them. They have never slacked off; the bodies are still standouts. I enjoyed the various corpses in the Body Farm episode last month; it reminded me of what I have read about the real body farm in the East. The Finder episode was a waste of an opportunity to have a Bones story. The best episode this season (for me) was the one where I got to see the Gravedigger's head explode. Then I went back and watched all the Gravedigger episodes on the previous DVD's. That actress was about the most godawful killer I have seen since the first time I saw Dirty Harry, when it came out in the theater. The villain in that one scared me for the next ten years, whenever I saw him in anything. She is that good -- I can never believe her when I see her playing another part -- I expect her to be the villain again. It is pretty sad when the most memorable performance of the season was a very short one from a guest star getting killed. I will continue to watch, but this isn't my favorite show any more. It isn't even one of them. Pity.




Hope season 7 is better than 6 twas, a little too comedic for my taste. and forget about the Finder...found it boring (hope they are not seriously thinking "Spinoff"


I hope season 7 is better that season 6.
Season 6 was a horror.....
Bad writing and at times bad acting. Also, the Finder spin off was the worst of the
entire season.

Bones Quotes

Sometimes the best things in life happen against the odds.


Booth: You know, when I say heartbreaking you say the heart is a muscle, so it can't break. It can only get crushed.
Brennan: Isn't it heartcrushing?
Booth: You want to go to his funeral?
Brennan: Yes, I would. Then she won't be alone.
Booth: You know what, Bones? Sometimes I think your heart muscle is bigger than people give you credit for.
