Melrose Place and Friday Night Lights actress Brooke Langton has signed on for an upcoming guest starring role on another hit series. The actress will join Fox’s hit procedural, Bones, in Season 8, where she will appear in an episode as Bones’ long-ago murdered mother, Ruth Brennan, who was killed on the run just a couple of years after she abandoned Bones as a child.
It's nearly Halloween, which means many TV shows are aiming for big scares or Halloween costume fun with one Halloween-themed installment to mark the occasion. And then there are the series that make Halloween a season-long affair, regularly delivering creepy, violent, scary characters that leave a memorable impression. We came up with a list of some of the most scary villains on television.
Vik Sahay is heading from the Buymore to the criminal-oriented world of Bones. The Chuck actor is hopping to Fox for a guest episode where he will play a suspect in a murder. When you look at Sahay’s baby face, it’s hard to believe the man could play a criminal, but Bones has featured weirder bad guys in the past.
For six seasons, Bones teased a possible relationship between main characters Seeley Booth and Dr. Temperance Brennan. We all knew they’d wind up with a white picket fence someday, but thanks to lead actress Emily Deschanel’s real life pregnancy, the future wound up coming a hell of a lot sooner than expected. Rather than shooting around the bump, series creator Hart Hanson wrote in the big reveal during the climax of Season Six, which paved the way for a bizarre, outlandish and still ultimately satisfying seventh season.
Bones’ first Season 8 episode tied in a lot of elements and storylines from last season. If you are a fan who missed out on a lot of last season's episodes, you should be able to remedy the issue fairly soon. Season 7 of everyone’s favorite forensic anthropologist will hit Blu-ray and DVD on October 9 in a set that will be low on episode count, but higher in extras.
Season 8 of Bones will bring plenty of changes, and among them is a new title sequence. After seven seasons with the same sequence and the same music, the Fox series will premiere a new version of the song as well as changes to the sequence for its eighth season, and you can check it out before the season premiere.
Bones fans at Comic Con last year were left disappointed when the panel for the Fox series was canceled last minute. But it looks like the Fox series is making it up to them this year, not only by bringing the panel back to SDCC, where fans will get to see creator Hart Hanson, executive producer Stephen Nathan and stars David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel, but by offering some pretty cool Bones loot as well.
David Boreanaz and his recent tweets have had Bones fans worried that they’re getting ready to watch the final season of the series. But you can all take a deep breath and rest easy tonight. Bones creator Hart Hanson has responded to the rumors that flew after Boreanaz made some very interesting tweets: no, Bones has no plans to end after the next season.
Could Bones be embarking on its final season? That's what's being implied in some recent tweets from series star David Boreanaz, a.k.a. Agent Seeley Booth. While fans will have the opportunity to celebrate the show at this July's Comic Con, it may be the last time they get to do just that.
With the network TV upfronts just days away, we're already starting to see final decisions made on the fate of the many pilots in development. Of course, to make room for the new, underperforming series have to be cut. Earlier today, we learned that Fox had given series orders to three comedy pilots. And tonight, it's been reported that one freshman drama has been renewed for a second season, while two others have been given the ax.
The big networks have been pretty good about keeping up with the Twitter feeds of some of their most popular shows. Fox’s Twitter is one that has been really impressive, tweeting out previews and clips from each of their primetime programs. Now, however, Fox plans to do something a little unprecedented with its Twitter feeds, and the network’s unprecedented behavior is going to involve a few spoilers.
There were drops all across the network board on Monday night. NBC’s juggernaut, The Voice was down 5% in viewership from last week. This still yielded the show a good 10.4 million viewers, it is just a far cry to what the series was bringing in several weeks ago. Let’s face it: people are not nearly as down with The Voice post battle rounds.
Bones has always been great about mixing its season up, splitting the episodes between lighthearted, playful plot lines and more serious drama. This intermixing combined with the show’s forensic anthropologist outlook allows Bones to have a tone unlike any other crime drama on television—a little odd, a little good-humored, a little dramatic and above all, extremely investing. Despite loving the laughs and the relationship-oriented side plots, the most gripping episodes of Bones have always been the more harrowing ones.
Good news, Bones fans! Fox isn’t going to keep you waiting to find out if the series will return. They’ve already renewed Bones for another season, bringing them to eight seasons and tied with on-the-way-out House for longevity.
Bones will return to Fox’s regularly scheduled lineup on April 2 and the network has even added a few extra episodes to keep the show on air for a little longer this spring. Because of this, audiences will have some interesting episodes coming up, and creator Hart Hanson has been all to willing to let us in on a few spoilers
