Bones' David Boreanaz Teases 'Tense' Times for Booth/Brennan, 'Very Shocking' End to Season 8

Bones Season 8 SpoilersEmbedded within the announcement of Bonesearly Season 9 renewal was the news that David Boreanaz — who last summer (playfully?) hinted at restlessness via Twitter — had re-upped with the Fox drama. But what sort of storyline twists compelled the actor to stay on?

“My contract was up [after Season 8], so I had opportunities to go into some new areas,” Boreanaz told TVLine at Fox’s winter TCA press tour party. “But [the producers and I] came together and found a happy medium. We sat and talked hard about the character development, and I’m excited.”

Asked to elaborate on the potential character development that sparked his interest, Boreanaz noted, “We’ve never really focused on the hardcore truth of what Booth goes through on an everyday basis, just as far as being a [former] soldier and the pain he endures.” To that end, the actor ventured, “His health problems may come to fruition…. There might be a traumatic experience that he’s got to deal with personally…. Maybe we’ll see more of that kind of stuff.”

As for Booth as he relates to lady love/baby momma Brennan, Boreanaz previewed, “There are always romantic moments between me and her.” However: “I think that they’ll be a little tense, they’ll be a little tested” as Season 8 continues on. “The interesting part about their relationship right now is that everyone seems to think, ‘Oh, they have a baby and it’s going to be calm.’ Well, I think it’s just the opposite.” And why is that? He hedged, “You’ll have to wait and find out.”

Boreanaz — who likely will again direct the show’s season finale — had nothing new to report on the oft buzzed-about introduction of Booth’s mom, but he did offer this semi-ominous tease for the back half of Season 8 and even next fall. “Things are going to be a little interesting at the end of this season, and how we go into the next season,” he shared. “I think it’s going to be very shocking and fun. I’m looking forward to the challenge.”

      I cant wait for it to come to South Africa, then we can judge it for ourselves, if not what we except, then I will stop whatsing,

  2. I feel like, everyone is very good at their job and I think they need the element of surprise to finish this guy. Bringing Zach can be soooo not expected from everyone including booth and bones. Maybe Jack visits him and tells him whats been happening with this guy and they plan something together to end him.
    Personally I am not a fan of their relationship, the show was better when the sexual tension was there all the time.
