Bones Season Premiere Scoop: Save, Cam!

at . Comments

When Bones premieres its sixth season on September 23, Booth will show up with a new girlfriend.

But what actually brings him, and Brennan, back to the Jeffersonian? According to producer Stephen Nathan, the pair returns to help Cam solve a case and save her job.

“The first episode begins with Brennan and Booth reuniting with the squints to save the career of one of their own,” Nathan told Michael Ausiello this week. “They each bring a new past with them as they forge their old alliances in new ways.”

Earlier reports had indicated that the show would jump ahead a year, but Nathan says only seven months will have gone by since events from the fifth season finale.

Elsewhere, Bones creator Hart Hanson has confirmed that a new villain is on the way - and he'll make a victim out of a key character.
