Bones‘ Brennan is about to come face-to-face with her long-dead mom.
Brooke Langton (Melrose Place) will play Christine Brennan, Max’s murdered wife, who appears after Brennan has a near-death experience, TVGuide.com reports.
Langton replaces Larisa Miller, who portrayed Brennan’s mom in flashbacks in Season 2.
Fans of the original Melrose Place will remember Langton as Jane’s roommie who married — and eventually divorced — Billy. Langton’s other TV credits include Life, Friday Night Lights and Weeds.
