The FOX drama, Bones is on its seventh season and returns from hiatus on April 2. Emily Deschanel plays Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan, who is set to welcome a daughter with Booth, played by David Boreanaz.
“She’s barely doing it!” Deschanel joked to OnTheRedCarpet.com at a 2012 PaleyFest event for the show. “Pretty amazingly – I think Brennan is kind of capable at pretty much everything she tries. So, it’s no surprise that she can handle parenthood and continuing her work … and writing novels just beautifully. But of course there are challenges along the way.”
“She deals with things that women have to deal with when they have a baby, like hormonal things, emotional connections to the baby, your clothes not fitting right,” Deschanel continued. “It’s fun to actually experience things in my own life and then read it in the script and be like, ‘Hey, wait a second, I’m going through that right now,’ so that’s fun. My character is fairly different from myself, so it’s nice to find similarities right now.”
Deschanel gave birth to her first child with ,em>It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia actor David Hornsby in September 2011.
Deschanel went on to give some details about how Seeley and Brennan’s relationship will change with their new addition.
“There are definitely arguments and discussions about how you raise children, and we have interesting jobs that you kind of want to shelter from babies that I don’t necessarily do, or my character doesn’t,” Deschanel said. “They go through lots of things that most parents go through, but from the unique perspective of people who fight crime all the time, so you’ll see Brennan in a very unique situation at the end of the season – and it affects her family.”
The show, which aired its first season in 2005, has grown into a hit FOX program with a cult following, and the actress is thrilled it has kept up its momentum.
“I can’t believe it’s been seven seasons, it blows my mind,” Deschanel said. “I feel like in one sense I blinked and all of a sudden I’m here. At the same time, so much has happened in that time that I can look back and say, ‘so many things have happened.’ It’s pretty incredible – not many shows have lasted as long as we have – I thought, you know, ‘maybe this show will last a season – how long could a show about Bones, be?’”
As you can see … Emily Deschanel Daily has a gorgeous new layout! The layout made was by the talented Purple Haze Inc. and I love the way it turned out! I think it is very girlie, very pretty and suits Emily’s personality! (She is pretty fancy, didn’t you know?!)
I am going to be working behind the scenes a lot over the next few weeks. I really want to expand the current content to make this the most comprehensive and complete resource for Em. In the meantime, I hope everyone loves the new layout as much as I do! If you spot any errors, sound off in the comments below!
During the Paleyfest 2012 panel Thursday night, Emily Deschanel opened up to Us Weekly about what five-month-old Henry has been up to.
“He’s wonderful!” The Bones star, 35, gushed when asked about her son with actor Henry Hornsby. “He has two teeth…very advanced for his age. I don’t know if that’s advanced…but it’s unusual!”
Later on during the conference, Deschanel dished about the Season 7 moment Bones fans have been waiting for: the birth of Brennan and Booth’s baby. Unfortunately, Deschanel admitted the scene didn’t go quite as smoothly as she, or her costar David Boreanaz, hoped it would.
“That baby peed on us,” Deschanel laughed. “Henry [had] also peed on me that day…when it happened I said, ‘I’ve been peed on today by two different babies!’”
But despite the diaper-changing hazards she and her character face, the actress couldn’t contain her enthusiasm about her parenting experience in general. “I don’t get a lot of sleep, but I love it,” Deschanel told reporters. “Henry’s awesome!”

Variance Films has announced they will be releasing Anne Renton’s The Perfect Famiy, which stars Kathleen Turner in her first lead role in almost two decades. Turner stars as a religious suburban matriarch who must contend with her unconvential family.
Variance will be releasing the film theatrically in New York on May 4th with a future date to be determined for a wider expansion. The film will also be distributed on VOD by Gravitas Ventures. The film initially premiered at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival and went onto be the opening film at the 2011 Provincetown Film Festival.
Suburban mother and devout Catholic Eileen Cleary (Kathleen Turner) has always kept up appearances. When she runs for the Catholic Woman of the Year title at her local parish—an award she has coveted for years—her final test is introducing her family to the board for the seal of approval. Now she must finally face the nonconformist family she has been glossing over for years. Her gay daughter, Shannon (Emily Deschanel), a successful lawyer, is about to marry her life partner Angela (Angelique Cabral). Her unhappily married son Frank Jr. (Jason Ritter) is cheating on his wife with the local manicurist. And Eileen’s own marriage to a recovered alcoholic is pulling at the seams…
Fox’s midseason schedule shuffle isn’t over just yet. Buoyed by the strong reception Touch received with its winter sneak peek, Fox has moved the Kiefer Sutherland drama’s season premiere to Thursday, March 22, at 9/8c, where it will remain and lead out of American Idol.
To make way for the newbie, Bones will air the remainder of its seventh season on Mondays at 8 pm, beginning April 2. (Previously, Bones was to return from Emily Deschanel’s maternity leave-induced hiatus on April 5.)
House will thus return to its 9 o’clock perch on April 2, building up to its series finale with all-original episodes from there on. What’s more, Fox has scheduled a retrospective special looking back at House‘s eight-year run, to air Monday, May 21, at 8, followed by the show’s grand swan song. (Source)
Ask Ausiello posted his latest TV spoilers. Michael gave us an explaination to the “crazy” photos posted on Twitter by Bones Executive Producer, Stephan Nathan. Do not read further if you wish to remain spoiler free.
Question: Any scoop on these crazy pics from the set of Bones that exec producer Stephen Nathan has been posting to Twitter?
Ausiello: “Imagine Michael Bay’s take on Bones,” Nathan tells me of those images from Episode 12, which finds Booth and Brennan travelling to Hollywood to observe production of the film version of her latest book. “Hollywood might have [taken some creative liberties] with the material.”
After a delayed premiere and two breaks, the bulk of Bones seventh season is finally on the schedule at Fox. The network confirms the veteran procedural, starring Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz, returns to the airwaves on Thursday, April 5. It enters the 9:00 p.m. timeslot after the freshman finale of The Finder. It’s spin-off, which has yet to match Bones in ratings, wraps up its 13-episode order on March 29.
Sidelined by Deschanel’s pregnancy, Bones order was originally cut to 13, but Fox brought the number up to 17 when she gave birth in September. The first 6 have already aired. Still, the complete episode count of the season remains a big question. Network entertainment president Kevin Reilly said at the winter Television Critics Association press tour that 22 could be on the table, schedule permitting.
“We programmed 17, but we ordered 22 for the season,” said Reilly. “We ordered as many as they could produce with Emily, so if they can produce 22 when she comes back, that’s what we’ll make… We ordered, ultimately, it ended up being 17 because that was all she could do. But if she comes back, they may ultimately end up making 22.”
Another question is when those episodes might air. Episodes 14-17 don’t yet have a home, with Reilly and showrunner Hart Hanson noting they may move into the next season or play in a separate run during the summer. (Source)
