John Francis Daley’s Bones shrink, Sweets, is set to pop up on the show’s spinoff this season, TVLine has confirmed.
“Who is more qualified to examine [Geoff Stults’] brain damaged paranoid finder than Sweets?” exec producer Stephen Nathan jokes to TVLine. “I think the FBI made a very good choice sending him.”
Daley — who has a little time on his hands now that Bones is on a three-month hiatus to accommodate Emily Deschanel’s maternity leave — is expected to be the first of several Bones vets to cross over to The Finder. David Boreanaz, meanwhile, has already signed on to direct an upcoming installment.
Season 7 of Bones launches Nov. 3, with The Finder debuting at midseason.
