Per Fox, the midseason premiere “finds Hodgins eight weeks into his rehabilitation and forced to navigate life in a wheelchair. Meanwhile, Brennan and Booth investigate the death of a public defender who had multiple defendants from previous cases with motives to kill her.”

In the 9 pm timeslot previously held by Sleepy Hollow, which now airs Fridays at 8, Fox will air the military-inspired competition series American Grit.

Hosted by WWE Superstar John Cena, Grit pits teams of men and women against each other to win millions in prize money as they face military- and survival-themed challenges.
