Bones Exclusive: Dilshad Vadsaria Back as Padme Booth — But Where's Jared?

Bones Season 11 Jared Booth

The mystery of Bones‘ season-opening vanishing just got a bit more mysterious.

In the wake of the news that Seeley will be missing when Season 11 opens on Thursday, Oct. 1, TVLine has learned exclusively that Dilshad Vadsaria is set to reprise her role as Jared Booth’s wife Padme.

Fox, however, is mum on the status of Jared himself, who in the past has been played by Roswell alum-turned-Night Shift doc Brendan Fehr. (Of note, as a reader reminds my TCA-taxed brain: The second episode of the season is titled “The Brother in the Basement.”)

Vadsaria, whose TV credits also include Revenge, Greek and Fox’s midseason drama The Frankenstein Code, previously portrayed Padme during Bones Season 5.

What do you make of this bit of casting, the Jared mystery and how it all might figure into Booth’s disappearance?
