First Bones Season 8 Promo: Will On-the-Run Brennan Actually Have More Fun?

Life’s not easy for Temperance Brennan when Bones‘ eighth season kicks off next month, but you wouldn’t expect it to be, seeing how she’s been framed for murder and is now on the lam from the FBI with little Christine in tow.

In this new season-premiere preview video, though, it’s clear our titular heroine’s not the only one who’s been adversely affected by the chain of events begun by Pelant’s heinous acts. The Jeffersonian team is poised to become a merry gang of rule-breakers. Booth and Brennan find themselves in a violent physical altercation (though, okay, it’s not as bad as it sounds). And Brennan’s hairdresser…well, let’s just say someone’s gonna need the smelling salts.

Bones returns Sept. 17 at 8/7c.

Press play below for the full preview, then hit the comments with your thoughts on the Season 8 trailer. Oh, and be sure to weigh in on Brennan’s new hair color.
