Ever since Emily Deschanel’s pregnancy was announced in March, Bones fans have been wondering how her fall due date will affect the show. Now that the Fox drama has finally received a season 7 pickup, that’s something producers are in the process of deciding — both in terms of story and production schedule.
“I imagine that you’re gonna see Brennan behind a microscope a lot next season. I think there’s gonna be a lot of close-ups of Brennan. I said I’d work though my hiatus, but we didn’t have a pick up until now, and they have to write before we shoot. It’s a whole situation,” Deschanel tells EW, with a laugh. “They have to see how long it takes them to write episodes. I think we’ll have our normal schedule starting in July or something, but I don’t know. We just had an email about that [yesterday]. Like, ‘We don’t know… but these are possibilities.”
The bigger question for viewers, of course, is whether Brennan will become pregnant as well.
“I don’t know. I feel like that would change things so much,” she says. “I am not gonna say no — never say never, I guess — but I think it’s unlikely. But only time will tell … How to address [my pregnancy] is a hard thing. I threw them a curveball personally, but you know, that’s life.” Indeed, show creator Hart Hanson has said that while sitting at Deschanel’s September 2010 wedding reception, he thought to himself, “Oh boy, I know what comes next.” “Not always in that order,” Deschanel jokes, “but yes, we didn’t waste much time.”
Having filmed the May 19 season finale in a bowling alley (Booth and Brennan go undercover in a league to solve a murder), we had to ask if the heightened sense of smell that comes along with pregnancy has been an issue on set.
“I do have a line about all the different smells that you can detect in a bowling alley. You could do a whole forensic study with the carpet itself. It’s kind of always an issue, but I haven’t vomited yet, so that’s a plus. I consider that a success.” She had a bad sense of smell to begin with, she adds, so now it’s probably only normal. “It’s probably worse coming to work when they’re painting. That was bad. First trimester, I came to work and I was like, ‘You guys need to clear this out!’, and no one understood why I was freaking out so much.”
Bones creator Hart Hanson has explained his decision to kill off a recurring character. Vincent Nigel Murray (Ryan Cartwright) died in last night’s episode after being shot by deranged sniper Broadsky (Arnold Vosloo).
Hanson told TV Line that Cartwright’s role in new Syfy pilot Alphas was the primary cause of Murray’s demise.
“The truth is he got a job,” explained the showrunner. “We knew [his exit] would happen before the end of this season, so the story has been in the works for a while. [Vincent is] a well-beloved character,” he admitted. “So we decided to kill him for the heartbreak.”
Bones star David Boreanaz (Booth) previously claimed that Vincent’s killer Broadsky could return in the show’s seventh season, adding that the villain’s reappearance could “bring up a lot of Booth’s past”.

Ask Ausiello has posted some Bones spoilers regarding what fans can expect regarding the upcoming *gulp* death! Take a look below:
Question: Can you tell us if the person dying on Bones this week is a regular or recurring character? —Alyssa
Ausiello: It’s a full-time series regular who has been with the show since the very first episode and whose name rhymes with “Moans.” Just kidding. It’s a recurring character (but a popular one).
Might a Bones death, tragic as it may be, give birth to a new — and intimate — closeness between Brennan and Booth? As revealed in Fox’s press release for sweeps, the May 12 episode of Bones finds serial sniper Jacob Broadsky hitting an innocent victim with a bullet intended for Booth. And as teased in the promo below, “one of their own won’t survive” that intense hour.
The same video clip shows a crestfallen Brennan collapsing into Booth’s arms… then into bed. Could this be the “Change In the Game” cited in the May 19 season finale’s title? Watch the video below, then weigh in on A) who you think will be leaving us and B) if that bed scene is anything more than two pals commiserating. Oh, and C) Don’t miss tonight’s new Bones, airing at 9/8c. (Source)
Ask Ausiello has posted some Bones spoilers regarding what fans can expect the last couple episodes of the season … and more! Take a look below:
Question: Any scoops on Bones? —Adriana
Ausiello: I can now confirm that Booth and Brennan will be spending the night together during May sweeps. The twist? Yours truly will be joining them! I’ll be moderating “An Evening with Bones” next Monday at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills. The event is sold out, but go ahead and email me any burning questions you have for the cast and creative team and I’ll do my best to get them answered during the Q&A portion. That email is email@example.com. Use it, don’t abuse it.
Question: Will Brennan and Booth share a cab anytime soon on Bones? Hart Hanson tweeted a pic of the crew setting up the final scene and it has got me thinking that maybe we’ll get to see them finally leaving in a cab together in the final seconds of this season. I’m getting tired of seeing Brennan all by herself in the backseat of a cab while Booth stands on the sidewalk watching her going away. —Amanda
Ausiello: “No cabs,” responds exec producer Stephen Nathan. “Many bowling balls, but no cabs. Some screaming, a revolting body, and a Hodgela baby. But no cabs.” I think what he’s trying to say in a roundabout way is that there are no cabs in the finale.
Booth and Brennan are coming back for more! After a series of 11th hour negotiations, Fox’s fan-favorite drama Bones has been renewed for a seventh season.
Though the network officially confirmed the news Tuesday, series star David Boreanaz jumped the gun and tweeted his excitement over the renewal. “Season 7 is GO for Bones,” the actor, 41, blogged Monday night.
“Bones is creatively fresh, it’s a rock-solid player every time it airs and this season it has helped us win on Thursday nights for the first time in our history,” Fox’s President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly tells Us Weekly in a statement. “Hart Hanson and the fantastic cast and crew, as well as the millions of loyal Bones fans, make this show really special, and I’m excited to have it on our air for another stellar season.”
While season 7 is a lock, how and if star Emily Deschanel’s real-life pregnancy will impact the series remains to be seen.
“I’m ready to pitch a bunch of alternatives,” Hanson told reporters in April, one month after Deschanel, 34, and her writer-actor hubby David Hornsby, announced they were expecting.
David Boreanaz confirmed on Twitter that Fox has renewed the hit show, Bones for another season. The news comes at what could be a critical turning point in the show’s history. After six years of will-they-or-won’t-they anticipation, Booth and Brennan may head into the seventh season as a fully-fledged couple.

As Bones season 6 comes to an end May 19 with the ambiguously-titled The Change in the Game — but before a potential Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) hook-up (or just a cruel bowling joke), there will be one more visit from recurring nemesis Jacob Broadsky (Arnold Vosloo) on the May 12 episode.
The serial sniper claims another victim in The Hole in the Heart, forcing Booth to increase his focus on the manhunt. This includes working with a young agent named Genny Shaw (guest star Tina Majorino), whose lack of experience puts them both in danger.
This being his last appearance of the season, it also stands to be Broadsky’s last trip to “Bones” ever. Producers have been coy about whether the arc would tie up this season or carry over into the fall.
And since this is the final sniper episode of the season, now would be the time to knock off a recurring character, as producers have hinted since last summer. An episode description says a bullet meant for Booth takes out someone else instead, and the episode’s title (“The Hole in the Heart”) certainly sounds a bit foreboding. At least in the confines of the Jeffersonian, it looks to be business as usual, with Mr. Nigel-Murray (Ryan Cartwright) assisting for the week. (Source)
Last Thursday’s episode of Bones introduced The Finder Walter Sherman (Geoff Stults), a former military policeman who did two tours in Iraq and returned with brain damage that made him suspicious of everything and everyone — but also able to find anything and anyone because of it (or so he believes). The character could front a new Fox show this fall, alongside his legal adviser/bodyguard Leo (Michael Clarke Duncan) and bartender/pilot/systems analyst Ike (Saffron Burrows). Are you rooting for him?
The concept borrows heavily from other shows, but it definitely has its own spin on things: As with Burn Notice, you’ve got a loyal trio in Florida with a badass chick and they’re not affiliated with the cops. But Ike wears more clothes than Fiona, presumably hasn’t slept with Walter, and needs to tone down her accent; Leo is there to tell Walter what charges he could face before doing whatever he’s about to do and to rescue him when someone comes after him (unless it’s Walter’s fault); and the only weapon we saw any of them wield in this hour was Leo’s book of poetry.
Like Psych‘s Shawn Spencer, Walter is incredibly observant and his gift his often doubted, but Walter isn’t actually hiding anything from anyone, nor does he make pop culture references or say something to a large tattooed biker like, “Hey, are you in charge of meth distribution in all of southern Florida or just this county?” just to be a smartass. He has no filter, so Walter asks whatever question he wants answered. Similar to Adrian on Monk, Walter could receive help for the issue that keeps him from enjoying life the way others do, but he runs the risk of losing the trait that may be the reason he’s so good at his job. In Walter’s case, it’s the ability to see connections that make him ask those questions that sound crazy/rude, but are actually little epiphanies. And just like Patrick Jane on The Mentalist, Walter has traditional leading man looks, but even though I don’t watch that show, something tells me Simon Baker has never stripped down to his briefs in a victim’s home to profile him and ended up on the toilet. Watch the scene below.
I also like the wide range of cases “The Finder” could take. It doesn’t have to be a part of a murder investigation, like the stolen treasure map with ink that was only visible when it came in contact with blood, semen, or breast milk was. (How did Booth find that factoid boring?) It could be something personal: To prove himself to Brennan, Walter found the medal she won for winning her 7th grade science fair. It was nice to see Brennan get that emotional again over her mother, who was pictured with 11-year-old Tempe in the accompanying newspaper clipping, wasn’t it?
Your turn. What are your thoughts on “The Finder” as a potential series? Are you glad the show would be set in Florida so Stults may have to do a lot of his profiling in boxers? And who’s hoping Walter has to go scuba-diving a lot so we see Hart Hanson’s face on his tank again? (Source)
