‘Bones’ is getting a farewell season. Season 12 of the hit show will be its last. Will David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel be returning for the show’s swan song? Find out now!
Get ready to say goodbye to Bones! The official end of the hit show was announced on Feb. 25. The good news is that there will be one last 12-episode season. However, Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz’s contracts ended after Season 11, so will the show continue without Booth and Brennan? We have the answer, here.
It’s official, one of the best shows on FOX is coming to an end. Luckily, it won’t just disappear into thin air! Bones will get a farewell season with 12 episodes to wrap everything up, and we couldn’t be happier about it.
However, Emily and David only had contracts with the show through Season 11, so there was a chance that the two wouldn’t be able to participate. FOX Chairman Dana Walden made is super clear at TCA in Jan. that there would be no going forward without the two stars, but luckily they’re both on board!
David was thrilled to do the final season. “This is for the fans!,” David said to Deadline. “Thank you to everyone at Fox and of course Dana and Gary – for all your support. Thank you to Hart, Stephen, Ian, Michael and Jonathan. Also to the crew and cast for their countless support along the way! And I couldn’t have done it without you, Emily!” to which his female counterpart added “I am thrilled the show will have the ending it deserves for all of our amazing, loyal fans!”
It’s clear that FOX didn’t want to leave fans empty handed when the show ended. “Bones has been part of the fabric of our network and studio for over a decade, and during that time it has attracted one of the most devoted fan bases we’ve ever seen,” said Dana. “So it was extremely important to us and to Hart, the producers and the cast that we send the show off in a way that gives those loyal fans a meaningful and satisfying conclusion.” We can’t wait to tune in!
