Baby 'Bump' May Help Bones Spinoff Find Place on Fox's Fall Schedule

Fox’s Bones spinoff, The Finder, is still very much in contention for a series order at Fox. But with shelf space at the network so tight, I hear the network and the series’ producers are exploring an alternate way to give the project a presence on Fox next season.

The pregnancy of Emily Deschanel is expected to sideline her for as many as six to seven episodes from Bones‘ recently ordered seventh season. Fox, producing studio 20th TV and Bones creator Hart Hanson are discussing the use of Finder-flavored episodes as filler during Deschanel’s maternity leave. Those would be Bones episodes with The Finder star Geoff Stults and his sidekick Michael Clarke Duncan appearing in them, giving Hanson an opportunity to further develop the new characters.

The future of the third Finder lead character (played by Saffron Burrows), which has drawn polarizing reaction, is unclear. Read the rest of this story at Deadline.com.

    We loved the finder here. Great as a spin off and we thought all the characters were great (even the english girl)

    I realllyyyy hope they don’t do this…I hated the introduction episode to The Finder and I definitely don’t plan on watching it in the future. Postpone the show or something, but definitely don’t do this.

    For those who were saying that ‘it’s NOT gonna be Bones episodes with The Finder storyline but a completely different series instead’, guys, I think you are wrong. The article said it’s “Finder-flavored episodes” so I’m sure that it means that we will be watching Bones with The Finder storyline in it. Eitherway, it will be so much painful for me not to see Emily on TV for more than a month! And Goood, that Bones-Finder pilot crossover was kinda lame. I don’t think I could bear watching those guys and the lady with the accent for one hour straight without Emily! Their ratings will definitely go DOWN. I hope when ED comes back the ratings will recover.

    On the other hand, I think it’s sad that the lady with the accent might be leaving the spin off show. I always thought she will be The Finder’s love interest. They look good together. :)
