It was a no-brainer, or possibly a no-Boner, really…
Bones has been renewed for an eighth season.
FOX president Kevin Reilly said in a statement, “Over the past seven seasons, [series creator] Hart Hanson, [exec producer] Stephen Nathan and the incredible Bones cast and crew have redefined the traditional crime procedural (really?) with an irreverent and adventurous sensibility.
“I’m really happy to have this distinctive, fan-favorite on our schedule for another season.”
Given the state of play of other FOX dramas the news was no surprise. House is ending, Terra Nova is cancelled and both Alcatraz and The Finder are unlikely to return.
The renewal will take Bones beyond its 150th episode.
