Bones Renewed For Ninth (and Final?) Season

Get More: News, Renewals

bones methodmadness blogEight is apparently not enough for Bones: Fox has renewed its Monday night staple for a ninth season.

The network broke the news Tuesday morning at its portion of the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour in Pasadena.

Last March, Bones creator Hart Hanson expressed confidence that the series would see a ninth season. “In many ways, Bones is Fox’s most successful hour-long scripted drama,” he contended. “So I’m very confident we’ll be back.”

In making the announcement, Fox stopped short of declaring Season 9 the show’s last. “After more than 150 episodes, Bones continues to be one of television’s most dynamic and consistent dramas,” entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly said in a statement. “We at Fox, along with millions of zealous fans, look forward to seeing where the incredible creative team takes the series next season.”

  • I don’t see why they keep teasing us about the last season. This show is a big hit. Keep a good thing going people!!! Happy about season nine but good stuff needs to keep going. Look how long Star Trek went and its still a hit every time! Bones has everything, drama, comedy, suspence, thriller, mystery, learning and love(the real ups and downs of it), even music and LOTS of heart. There isn’t a better show going. I’m so tired of the garbage thats on anymore. p.s. Bring back Zach!

  • I have to say I’m not happy with the way they left this last season. It will happened before in other shows When you break people up because of some A hole that got written in. You better fix this or it will be the end of your show. We all love the romance. Don’t screw it up.

  • Another show that was once good overstaying its welcome. The story lines are boring and the show is devolving into subplots that are trite and stilted.
