For the passionate TV fan, it's not difficult to find great TV-related panels at Comic-Con. In fact, the real challenge is trying to figure out how to get to all of the great panels in a given day, which is virtually impossible. When it comes down to it, it's all about prioritizing. And Friday's schedule is a prime example. Is it possible to get to the Adventure Time panel at the Hilton and also make The Walking Dead panel over in Hall H?
Comic Con is a little over a month away, which means we're at the point where we should start hearing confirmation on what TV shows will be showcased at the convention. The list for 20th Century Fox TV's series has arrived online and indicates that a number of new series will be featured with panels, as well as How I Met Your Mother, which will make its Comic Con debut in San Diego to promote its final season.
Fox announced their 2013-2014 lineup this morning, along with the planned schedule, which sets up new comedies on Tuesday nights and adds a number of other new series to the schedule, along with the returning shows. Among the new series is J.J. Abrams' sci-fi cop series Almost Human, Seth MacFarlane's new live-action comedy Dads and new animated comedy Murder Police.
Next month is going to be a big month for Fox’s forensic anthropology procedural Bones. Not only has Joanna Cassidy been confirmed to join the show for a guest episode playing Booth’s mother, General Hospital’s Brandon Barash will also guest star in an April episode. While he won’t be anybody’s long lost family member, we may be able to catch the actor with his pants off.
Just a few episodes after we’ve met Brennan’s mother, Bones fans will get to meet Booth’s mom. Body of Proof and Six Feet Under’s Joanna Cassidy has signed on to Fox’s oddball procedural to play Booth’s mother, Marianne Booth in an episode that will likely look into Booth’s past.
Bones will return! Fans of Fox's crime procedural Bones will be very happy to learn that Fox has renewed the show for a ninth season. The drama has already passed the 150-episode mark, which is an impressive feat for any show these days. And though Bones' ratings have slipped a bit in recent years, the drama still has a loyal fan base.
The rotating list of interns on Bones hasn’t changed much in Season 8. An earlier episode this season featured the squints working together to identify some cold case remains and crack one mysterious mystery. Now that the regular interns are all playing nicely together, Fox’s oddball procedural is adding a new intern into the mix.
Carradine will play the widowed Dolores Hyams, who is the mother of 15-year-old Kat. Both ladies are going through a tough time after Kat’s friend is murdered, assumedly leading to the week’s mystery, but both refuse any help or counseling services (methinks suggested by good old Sweets).
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.
