Bones Creator Sheds Light on New Season, Avoiding "Curse"

by at . Comments

Hart Hanson has been around long enough to know that he was taking a big risk with the Bones Season 6 finale and the game-changing events that will follow.

He also felt he had to avoid the Moonlighting curse at any cost.

By circumventing what some think of as the best part of TV couples who finally get together - actually seeing them get together, and being a couple - Hanson believes he's avoided any chance of the show's trademark Booth-Brennan dynamic growing stale.

Season Finale Pairing

Says Hart in an interview with EW:

“I really feel like we got to jump the part where the curse could get its teeth in. I always thought that the Moonlighting curse was when two people have sexual tension and then everything’s [suddenly] fine and the world looks the same."

"What do you to then? We don’t have that. The world does not look the same,” he adds. “They got together and we get to start again from a different place.”

That said, he says fans will NOT be disappointed by what's to come this fall, and that some of the blanks - such as the lack of love scene - may be filled in yet.

“I want everyone to tune in to see that. I don’t want to say it’s going to happen, but I do believe people will be pleased with what they see,” the creator says with a smile. “I think the first images of the new season will explain a lot."

"I don’t want to blow anything big here, but people will be as interested and excited as [the creative team is] in where all these characters are.”

Bones returns Thursday November 3 on Fox after the end of the World Series. For more on what's to come, check out these Bones Season 7 spoilers.

Enough with the Moonlighting Curse. I watched the Moonlighting series and have a slightly different view of why the viewers abandoned the show. The forth season’s writing was so thin that a larger and larger portion of the show depended on the sexual tension between Shepherd and Willis. When they finally hooked up there was no plot left to interest the fans. As far as I am concerned the Moonlighting Curse is the biggest snow-job cover up of bad writing that I can remember.

Seaon 6 was a little bit terrible, but i think hart Hanson redeemed himself with the last 4 eps. THOSE episodes were well written and I enjoyed them immensely. Have a little faith in HH.

VAD is absolutely correct! Hated Hannah, hated season 6! Don't trust HH at all because he seems more interested in his new show, the finder which was absolutely boring and dull and horrible IMO.
