Check out the promo for next weeks all new episode of “Bones!” It looks like it’s going to be a great episode, as well as fun with Bones and Booth going undercover as Roxie and Tony! Can’t wait!
Pelant may be on his way out, but that doesn’t mean Bones‘ Booth and Brennan can kick back and focus on wedding seating charts and signature cocktails.
It’s no secret that the pair will take down their nemesis during Season 9 (which premieres Sept. 16 at 8/7c), but the end of his reign of terror will only bring on more troubles for the crime-solving duo.
“Pelant is part of uncovering our next Big Bad,” executive producer Hart Hanson revealed during a recent conference call.
The new foe “looms over our people in a way we have yet to see on Bones,” added fellow EP Stephen Nathan. “It’s someone who is far more ephemeral than any of our other bad guys.”
But first, Brennan and Booth must deal with that pesky cyber hacktavist. “Pelant will definitely figure into their lives quite heavily in the first few episodes,” shared Nathan. “It’ll be a far more intense episode. It’ll be them confronting him in a way we haven’t seen before.”
And the resolution will come “fairly quickly,” since the couple will tie the knot early in the season. “They can’t really get married until the issue of Pelant has been dealt with one way or another,” pointed out Hanson.
Read on for more scoop about the new season:
WEDDED BLISS | Hanson said he intends to give fans “a wedding in the way they don’t expect it.” One of the guests at the affair will be Booth’s ex-priest, Aldo (played by Mather Zickel), who will be back throughout the season. As for after the nuptials, Booth and Brennan’s union won’t change them, but it will challenge them. “We wanted them to get married and then put them in the most extreme situations we possibly could for the remainder of the year to test that relationship,” said Nathan.
GOING ABROAD | The newly married couple will honeymoon in Buenos Aires, where they discover “that the entire country of Argentina is madly in love with Brennan’s books, and it takes a turn that even Brennan didn’t see coming,” previewed Nathan.
BROKEN FRIENDSHIP | The bad feelings between Booth and Angela, who takes Brennan’s side during the couple’s woes, will linger for a while. “They both love Brennan, and [you] don’t step between sisters, which Booth has done,” explained Hanson. “That’s going to take a while to play out, because hurtful things were said, and they don’t fix themselves overnight.”
BURNING QUESTIONS | The EPs wouldn’t say when the mystery behind the cryptic “447” number will be answered, but they did reveal that viewers soon will learn what Brennan wrote when she was buried alive with Hodgins in Season 2, as well as Angela’s real name!
GROSS-OUT | “One episode coming up has something that seems to be one of the most revolting things – and I say that with great delight – that we’ve ever had on Bones, and it has nothing do to with a dead body,” teased Nathan.

Emily Deschanel is keeping it in the family!
Though fans have been waiting to hear if the Bones star’s real-life sister Zooey Deschanel will be reprising her role as Emily’s character’s cousin for the big wedding episode, E! News can confirm that is not happening.
Zooey is too busy shooting that little show of hers called New Girl. And despite rumors that Emily might play Zooey’s character’s sister on New Girl, that’s not in the cards either, according to sources.
Still, we just discovered another very cool family twist!
E! News can exclusively report that a family member is guest starring on the wedding episode of Bones: Emily’s real life husband, actor/writer David Hornsby (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia)! Word is, he’s playing a priest who may or may not be the one officiating the actual ceremony between Bones (Emily) and Booth (David Boreanaz). The episode is shooting this week. Here’s hoping the priest doesn’t break up the wedding!
Boreanaz hinted at this very real-life twist at the Fox Eco Casino Party in Santa Monica on Monday night, telling me: “It’s exciting because we have some great guests. Some surprise guests. We don’t actually know who may be marrying the two of us. That could be the biggest question out there and you have to really think hard about this one. I’ll give you one hint. The person who is going to marry us is close to one of the cast members.”
As for what else lies ahead for season nine, David teases: “Cyndi Lauper is going to come and sing at the wedding. And Freddie Prinze is coming on. We did a great undercover episode we’re really excited about. And this whole Pelant serial killer thing…We get rid of one serial killer and we might be bringing in another one. I think we got rid of him. I’m not sure!”

Bones stars David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel will say “I do” on the upcoming ninth season, and that upcoming onscreen happiness looks to have translated off-screen.
In this exclusive first look at Fox’s Image Campaign for the new fall season, Deschanel can be seen sitting on her longtime co-star’s lap as they pose for photos. However, the Bones duo aren’t the ones showing off their pearly whites for the camera. The stars from returning shows such as New Girl and The Mindy Project, as well as new shows like Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Almost Human, also put their best foot, or should we say face, forward for the photo shoot.

Last month, Bones creator Hart Hanson promised that Booth and Brennan’s Season 9 nuptials “will happen in a way you don’t expect and [at] a time you don’t expect.”
He wasn’t kidding about the second half of that statement.
TVLine has learned exclusively that the venerable Fox drama will defy TV convention and not make fans wait until the end of the season to see Booth and Brennan get hitched. No, the ceremony will take place sooner rather than later. Much sooner.
As in: It’s shooting this week.
Bones insiders confirm that wedding episode is currently in production and is slated to air later this fall. And all indications are that it will be an affair to remember.
“We’ve been waiting over eight years for this, and we really want to deliver the wedding that everybody hopes for,” exec producer Stephen Nathan recently told TVLine. “It’s our intention that when [viewers] get an invitation, it’s well worth wearing a clean suit and buying a nice gift.”
Emily attended the Launch Party for the premieres of FX’s series “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and “The League” at Lure on Tuesday (September 3rd) in Hollywood, California. You can check out 50 MQ photos of Emily on the red carpet in the gallery. Enjoy!

TV’s biggest night is putting the spotlight on a sister act.
Real-life siblings Emily Deschanel and Zooey Deschanel will present together at the 65th annual Emmy Awards, which airs Sept. 22 at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT on CBS.
Other tag-team presenters on tap for the annual kudosfest are Kerry Washington — a first-time Emmy nominee this year for Scandal — and Diahann Carroll, Mom co-stars Allison Janney and Anna Faris (synergy!), and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler (who in addition to being nominated for their respective roles on 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation, are up for an award for their stellar co-hosting turn at the Golden Globe awards.)
PREVIOUSLY ON… | Booth hastily (and awkwardly) called off his engagement to Brennan after Pelant threatened to kill a handful of innocents if he failed to do so, leaving his would-be bride heartbroken. Elsewhere, Sweets felt responsible for the unintentional role he played in Pelant’s latest killing spree.
COMING UP NEXT | The action jumps ahead several months, where Booth and Brennan’s relationship is on the verge of buckling under the strain of The Lie. “The first episode will clearly revolve around how Brennan and Booth deal with the fact that the wedding was called off,” shares exec producer Stephen Nathan, who confirms that the star-crossed lovers will eventually mend fences and (hallelujah!) tie the knot during Season 9. And have no fear — this won’t be some rinky-dink, half-assed affair. “We’ve been waiting over eight years for this and we really want to deliver the wedding that everybody hopes for,” assures Nathan. “It’s our intention that when [viewers] get an invitation, it’s well worth wearing a clean suit and buying a nice gift.” Elsewhere, Sweets takes a guilt trip to the inner city to explore a new job opportunity, and Hodgins is reunited with a surprising family member.
TVLINE BONUS SPOILER | Something happens in Episode 2 that rocks Cam’s world — and subsequently impacts her burgeoning romance with Arastoo. “It’s not a disease or anything like that,” Nathan notes. “But it’s something she will have to contend with for [the rest of] this season.”
RETURN DATE | Monday, Sept. 16 at 8/7c (Fox)
