Seven is responding to the soft numbers for Killing Time by bringing Bones back to Sunday nights from this weekend.
Season 8 begins at 8:30pm with “The Future in the Past.”
Having been accused of murder, Brennan is on the run from the FBI, with help from her father Max. Booth and the Jeffersonian team are convinced evil tech genius Christopher Pelant has manipulated key evidence in the case to pinpoint Brennan as the prime suspect. Then, an anonymous tip leads the team to the remains of a high school guidance counsellor that may hold the key to proving Brennan’s innocence.
This aired in the US in mid-September.
As a result Killing Time, which lost half the audience from its lead-in Ahn Does Vietnam, moves to 9:30pm and Strike Back moves to 10:30pm with a single ep.
