Bones Sully Returns Final Season

Bones Final Season: Eddie McClintock to Return as Brennan's Ex, Sully

The ex in the exit?

As part of Bones‘ midseason farewell tour, Eddie McClintock will reprise his role as Tim “Sully” Sullivan, the actor announced on Twitter.

McClintock — whose more recent TV credits include Warehouse 13, episodes of Supergirl and S.H.I.E.L.D. and USA Network’s upcoming Shooter — previously appeared on Bones for four episodes during Season 2. In that short span, FBI agent Sully met and started dating Brennan, with whom he was partnered while Booth was sidelined to see a shrink.

Endeavoring to live life to the fullest after having lost his FBI partner, Sully got too serious too quickly with Bones, as she declined his offer to sail to the Caribbean in a boat he named after her. The character was barely mentioned after that.

Bones‘ 12-episode farewell season is slated to premiere in early 2017 on Fox.
