Bones Creator Reacts to David Boreanaz Tweet, Plans for Seasons 9 and 10

at . Comments

Like Dwight Howard, David Boreanaz will be a free agent after the 2012-2013. And also like that Orlando Magic center, this Bones star is talking openly about the possibility that he'll be changing teams a year from now.

"You must always keep your options open and ready for new challenges," Boreanaz wrote on Wednesday. "The fear is the unknown and that’s exciting.”

The actor also referred to this year's appearance at Comic-Con for Bones as a possible "farewell tour" for the beloved series.

Enter Hart Hanson to calm the fears of fans.

Reacting to his star's mysterious Tweets, the creator said he has no plans to wrap up the show with Bones Season 8. In fact...

"Anything can happen in a complicated world,” Hanson tells Entertainment Weekly. “But we’re very, very confident in having at least a season 9, and I can see as far as season 10 before my eyes get misty.”

Boreanaz's contract is up after this season, however, meaning there's at least the possibility that he could exit the series.

But Hanson believes his star is simply negotiating early ("Hats off to him," if so, the producer says), is merely "playing around" and has given no indication that he's unhappy with his role.

"I believe he is certainly hoping for season 9. I don’t think he’s getting tired of it. I think he’ll probably want a little more money when he next has a chance, but that’s completely par for the course. That’s just the way things go... I know him well enough after all these years. He’s just having some fun."

Bones Quotes

You nurture me. You protect me. You are my home. If I were to damage that by a meaningless dalliance, it would be like killing myself -- something I would never do.

Brennan

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.
