Fox Planning Bones Spinoff Around New Character

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.

Bones Quotes

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.

Three cheers for incompetence and faulty equipment.
