One of Fox's most consistent performers will give the network some peace of mind for at least one more season: Bones has been renewed for a ninth season of flirty forensic investigations. The network announced the renewal at its TCA session this morning.
I wish I could tell you more about the details of the renewal, but all we really got was, "Hey you! We renewed Bones!" (There's no word on whether Season 9 might be the show's last.) After doing a little forensic investigating of our own, we can assume the series will be back next fall for a full 22 episodes, and at some point Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz will make goo-goo eyes at each other.
Bones is currently in its eighth season, and Fox would like to remind you that the second half of that eighth season begins on January 14 with a two-hour episode that sees Booth and Brennan go undercover as professional competitive dancers. Well of course they do.
