The mystery surrounding Booth’s looming Bones disappearance has been solved.
David Boreanaz reveals to TVLine exclusively that he suffered a health scare earlier this summer that delayed his return to the Fox drama. To accommodate his late start, Bones producers crafted a Season 11 storyline in which Booth goes missing.
The good news: Boreanaz — who we’re hearing suffered a bad reaction to an antibiotic — is back on his feet and scheduled to report to work on Tuesday, Aug. 25. First up for the actor will be taping scenes that can be inserted into the episodes he missed, beginning with the Oct. 1 premiere.
“Nothing matters to me more than Bones, so I was thrilled when the producers came up with a way for me to take a few extra weeks to recover from a personal health issue without delaying production,” Boreanaz said in a statement to TVLine. “I’m happy to say that I’m now feeling great and will be back to work tomorrow, and that our 11th season premiere will broadcast on schedule – with me in it.”
