First Bones Season 8 Promo: Will On-the-Run Brennan Actually Have More Fun?

Get More: Previews, Video

Life’s not easy for Temperance Brennan when Bones‘ eighth season kicks off next month, but you wouldn’t expect it to be, seeing how she’s been framed for murder and is now on the lam from the FBI with little Christine in tow.

In this new season-premiere preview video, though, it’s clear our titular heroine’s not the only one who’s been adversely affected by the chain of events begun by Pelant’s heinous acts. The Jeffersonian team is poised to become a merry gang of rule-breakers. Booth and Brennan find themselves in a violent physical altercation (though, okay, it’s not as bad as it sounds). And Brennan’s hairdresser…well, let’s just say someone’s gonna need the smelling salts.

Bones returns Sept. 17 at 8/7c.

Press play below for the full preview, then hit the comments with your thoughts on the Season 8 trailer. Oh, and be sure to weigh in on Brennan’s new hair color.

      • Lets hope Brennen relieves some of Booth’s tension after being apart for 4 months. Come on Hart and Fox. Time for some serious romance :D

  • Her hair’s a wig right? It’s not dyed blonde… Is it?
    I was kinda hoping Brennan would have a really sexy new hair color/style… Now that would really get Booth going… ;)

  • Season 8 premier is going to ROCK!…..But seriously, Emily looks washed out as a blonde. The wig looks like road kill or something. A.w.f.u.l….Lmao though.

      • All you women only watch to see Booth and to bust on Bones. Watch the whole show and stop hating the real star of the show.

        • Bones would good great in anything she wears, so lay off

        • Wow! Jealous much?! Yes, women love to watch Booth but we also watch because we love the show as a whole and enjoy all of the characters and actors!

    • Her hair looks wrong because they didn’t bleach her eyebrows and they are still using makeup for her coloration as a brunette. Which really makes me think that is just a wig, and it’s only going to last one episode or so.

  • Beyond excited for season 8!

  • Love the promo…we get to see Bones and Booth get physical! (And agree about David’s arms…will admit to replaying those frames a few times) So excited for the premiere. I think it is too much to hope the house they are sitting outside of is actually their mighty hut, isn’t it? Oh well. 23 more days!

  • I can’t say I’m crazy about Brennan’s new hair color, but when one is on the lam from the Feds, drastic times call for drastic measures!

    I can’t wait to see what happens on the season premier.

    Comment by Brette O'Connell – August 25, 2012 01:52 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I’m just hoping that wig will disappear after the premiere!

    Comment by Maria – August 25, 2012 02:10 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Amen! Back to brunette, PLEASE!!!! Can’t wait for the new season!

  • I have been waiting foR some hint to figure out what is going to happen. Great promo! I hope the villain is caught soon. The new hair – not good. Sept 17th – ok – let’s go!

  • Really really looking forward to season 8! Hopefully Northwest Broadcasting and DirecTV will settle their greedy differences and put our local Fox station back on before season premier of Bones!

  • She could have gone Brunette, but, noooo, she needs to go blonde…. yuck.

    Comment by Barbie Furtado – August 25, 2012 03:25 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Um, brunette was either her original hair color or too close to her hair color. She had to do something to alter her appearance and throw the feds off. Calm down. There’s no way it’s a permanent change.

  • The hair isnt flattering! I agree with the washed out look. I’m excited about the new season. Hope they keep the love going!!!

  • Though her hair looks bad and I don’t love the choice of having her run away, I do love it when the whole team gets all “we’re in on this together, solid, family blah blah”…

  • Please let the Pellant case wrap up quickly… Andrew Leeds was miscast in the role and I find it hard to enjoy the show when he’s on screen.

    • Even if she did dye her hair instead of wear a wig, I highly doubt it’s a permanent change. Just temporary for while she’s on the run. But I agree with the others – not her best look. Glad it’s not permanent. I also loved the look of happiness her her eyes when she saw Booth – so sweet! Can’t wait for the new season!

      Comment by Sarah Elizabeth Ann (@myownlittlecrnr) – August 26, 2012 07:32 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • She is in disguise, her hair has to be different or she would be recognized! Eagerly awaiting new season to see how she is reunited with her Booth!!

    Comment by Helen – August 26, 2012 02:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • The blonde hair is so obviously a wig. If they’re saying she actually dyed it blonde, then they didn’t do a good job cuz it looks so fake.

  • Loose the blonde hair!! it dosen’t suit her coloring at all!! can’t wait for the new season to start…i never miss this show :)

  • I’ve watched seasons 1-7 and I’m eagerly awaiting season 8. why does Cam look like she’s not with everyone else in helping get Bones back. The wig is funny but hey you do what you gotta do. Booth loves Bones and he wants his woman back. Yea Booth.

    Comment by lisa – August 28, 2012 12:06 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I AM SO EXITED!!! Omg can’t wait for September 17 to come! After seeing this AMAZING promo, I’m even more eager (which I didn’t know I could get)..
    I love Bones sooooo much, my absolute favorite show <3 <3

    And about the fact that she is blond. I don't really care, as long as the show is still great. Which it will be! And the hair looks like a wig, so don't worry people. Its properly not the worse thing..

    Comment by Astrid – August 28, 2012 12:50 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • It’s a wig cause she’s on the lamb! It does make her look washed out, but I don’t care what she looks like! I spend most of my time drooling after David! Just read that – makes it sound like I don’t like Emily, which is so far from the truth. I think she’s awesome and I LOVE Booth & Brennan being together. Cannot wait for Season 8.

    Comment by Jenifer Strang – August 28, 2012 02:17 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I actually quite like the wig…. I know it might sound strange, but I do – it’s different.
    I can’t wait for Spetember 17 to come! I am in Australia so I will download it as soon as it has premiered in America!!!!
    19 days and counting!!

  • I agree the hair is completely wrong, love the clip, wish they had shown more… counting down the day until Sept 17, glad I am not the only crazy B&B fan
