Bones First Look: Booth and Brennan Get Animated in Season 11 Poster

Bones Season 11

Booth may be AWOL in Bones‘ Oct. 1 premiere, but David Boreanaz is very much front and (left of) center in the show’s Season 11 key art.

The throwback-y poster below casts Boreanaz and leading lady Emily Deschanel as avatar versions of Booth and Brennan, alongside the tagline, “Murder Draws Them Together.”

The cheeky, lighthearted artwork stands in stark contrast to the drama that will unfold at the start of Season 11 when Booth suddenly goes missing (a storyline triggered by Boreanaz’ real-life health crisis). And although the matter will be resolved by the end of Episode 2, the “impact of what happens will carry us through” the season, showrunner Michael Peterson recently told TVLine.

Take a gander at the poster — click on it to view the XL version! — then, you know, say some stuff in the comments.
