Call it “The Beginning in the End.”
Fox has set a premiere date — Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2017, at 9/8c — for the 12th and final season of Bones.
The farewell run promises to “celebrate the inventive series and bring the storylines of Brennan (played by Emily Deschanel), Booth (David Boreanaz) and the Jeffersonian-FBI team to a close, allowing the show’s loyal fans to say goodbye to these indelible characters.”
Fox’s press release also teases “the return of fan-favorite guest stars and squinterns, as well as an old flame from one of the team’s past” (aka Eddie McClintock’s Tim Sullivan). Viewers can also count on “a wedding, an “epic serial killer storyline” and a new undercover mission set at a lumberjack competition.
Oh, and you’ll also see “Booth and Brennan’s marriage get put to the test.” Hmm.
“From the very first season, Bones was called ‘The Little Engine That Could.’ So we could not be prouder of ending up as Fox’s longest-running scripted drama,” series creator Hart Hanson said in a statement. “And we got there because of an insanely loyal, loud, lovely, lively audience.”
Are you ready to bid farewell to dem Bones?
