Bones Exclusive: David Boreanaz Promises a Radically Different Booth in Season 9, Teases a Blast from the Past 'That May Hurt Him'

Among the provocative pieces of intel the actor unloaded during our rapid-fire, lightning-fast Q&A: The new season (premiering Monday, Sept. 16) will introduce a “surprising” new Booth to viewers (“Some people are going to like it, some people won’t,” he says); and someone from Booth’s past, whom we have never met before, will resurface and “somewhat help him, and may hurt him.”

Boreanaz also weighs in on the show’s future beyond Season 9, and its new (though not necessarily guaranteed..?) Friday time slot come November.
