If you haven’t caught the first episode of Bones’ new season, you should turn back, now. This article is a hive of spoilers, and while finding out things ahead of time might seem like fun, it's always better to just learn in the moment. So, go plow through the episode and then immediately head back to this article to read more about what happened.
Bones is famously headed into its 10th season this fall, and to celebrate, the good folks over at Fox put together a brand new trailer for the new season that premiered on Friday at Comic-Con in San Diego. The trailer is three minutes long, with a half-minute of brand new footage at the very end of the clip. Unfortunately, things aren’t looking too good for Booth.
Fox announced their 2014-2015 schedule this morning, and in addition to adding some of their anticipated new series -- Gotham included -- the network has made a few notable changes to their primetime line-up, including moving one of their popular live-action comedies to Sunday night and putting a new hour-long series on Tuesday, ahead of their New Girl/Mindy Project comedy block.
During the last episode of Criminal Minds to air, Jennifer Jareau was kidnapped and tortured by a militant former associate who wanted her access codes as part of an anti-government conspiracy. During the last episode of The Mentalist to air, a recurring character and associate of the lead was kidnapped, tortured and murdered as part of an organized campaign against the CBI.
This Monday night, Bones and Booth will finally tie the knot! It took until Season 9 for it to happen, but it's happening, and if you're even only vaguely familiar with the series and the characters, the new clip, which shows us some mild wedding rehearsal shenanigans, should seem pretty standard for Bones. Love is in the air and cell phone bells are ringing!
I’ve stuck with you, Bones, through nearly half a dozen big baddies. I’ve stuck with you even when you killed off the show’s best squint, and even after that, when my favorite characters dealt with the aftermath of the loss of that squint. I cried when Sweet’s and co. sang Harry Nilsson’s “Coconut.” But I think that may have been your pinnacle, Bones, and I’m neither crying nor laughing with you anymore.
Bones isn’t the sexiest show on television. It’s never cleaned up at the awards podium or even finished higher than twenty-ninth among network programs, but over its first eight seasons, it has quietly emerged as one of FOX’s most stable and well-liked offerings.
I watch shows like The Americans, Parenthood and Game Of Thrones to be surprised. I watch procedurals when I want the familiar. Unfortunately, there’s one thing that’s a little too familiar about random episodes of procedurals: killers who are way the hell more famous than every other random guest star.
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.
