The hit drama series Bones returns for Season 8 on Fox on September 17th. Having been accused of murder, at the end of last season, Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is on the run from the FBI, with help from her father Max (guest star Ryan O’Neal). Meanwhile, Booth (David Boreanaz) and the Jeffersonian team are convinced that evil tech genius Christopher Pelant (guest star Andrew Leeds) has manipulated key evidence in the case to pinpoint Brennan as the prime suspect, and they set out to do everything they can to prove it and bring her back.
During this recent interview to promote the new season, executive producers Hart Hanson (also the show’s creator) and Stephen Nathan talked about the reunion of Booth and Bones, how her friends and co-workers feel about Brennan’s decision to leave, how much Christopher Pelant will play a part in the storyline this season, why they decided to update the opening credits and theme music, that the interns will continue to revolve, that viewers might see some new family members introduced along with the return of some previously seen, the challenges of keeping a show realistic for so many seasons without stagnating, what they have planned for the 150th episode, and how the contract negotiations are going with the actors for Season 9. Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there might be some slight spoilers.

Yesterday we got a look at what NBC will be offering by way of scheduling and new series this fall, and now Fox has announced their upcoming 2012 schedule. As far as shifts for returning series go, the Kiefer Sutherland drama Touch has been moved to Fridays, while Ryan Murphy’s Glee (which has been on a ratings downslide as of late) has been put in the post-X Factor/American Idol slot on Thursday nights. Moreover, the network announced that Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson will be doing guest star arcs on Glee for the show’s upcoming fourth season.
As far as new shows go, The Office star Mindy Kaling’s new show, currently titled The Mindy Project (hopefully a temporary title), and the new ensemble comedy Ben and Kate will join Raising Hope and the hit Zooey Deschanel series New Girl on Tuesdays for an all-comedy night. I’m a huge fan of New Girl and I’m hoping The Mindy Project will be a nice companion show. Another high profile new series, Kevin Williamson’s serial killer show The Following starring Kevin Bacon, has been slated to premiere at midseason. Hit the jump to get a look at the full Fox schedule.
Already renewed for Season 8, the Fox drama series Bones returns in a new timeslot on Mondays with all-new episodes, starting with a very untraditional arrival of Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan’s (Emily Deschanel) baby daughter. In “The Prisoner in the Pipe,” a neighborhood is on edge when remains are found in the sewer, identified as a male fugitive who escaped from the penitentiary for financial fraud, and Booth and Brennan turn to an inmate for clues about the murder.
During this recent interview to promote the return of the show, executive producers Hart Hanson (who is also executive producer of The Finder) and Stephen Nathan talked about what it will be like for Booth and Brennan to work together and have a baby together, how they decide when a recurring character will come back for a specific episode, how the arrival of the baby will change things (or not) for the characters, the decision to skip over showing the development of the Booth and Brennan relationship before skipping straight to the pregnancy, what’s to come for the other characters, what might happen to the four stand-alone episodes that are in limbo with the shortened season, and whether other cast members might appear on The Finder, if that series gets another season. Check out what they had to say after the jump:
The seventh season isn’t finished yet, and it actually isn’t returning from a quick break until April 2nd, but Fox just announced that Bones has been picked up for an eighth season already where it will hit a milestone 150 episodes. Kevin Reilly, President of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company, says, “Over the past seven seasons, Hart Hanson, Stephen Nathan and the incredible Bones cast and crew have redefined the traditional crime procedural with an irreverent and adventurous sensibility and I’m really happy to have this distinctive, fan-favorite on our schedule for another season.” However, if it’s only one season, I’m wondering if this could be the last season for Bones, much like this eighth season for House M.D. Hit the jump for the full press release.
As part of the TCA Press Tour presentation for Fox, President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly took some time to talk about the focus of their returning series for the Fall season, the possibility of further seasons for a number of those shows, and the role that their new line-up will play, in determining the future of the network. Here are the most interesting points:
- Season 3 of Glee will return its focus on the core characters and relationships, with three of the original cast graduating this season. There are not going to be any big guest stars this season, or tribute episodes.
- There is no doubt that Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk will be able to manage their time on both Glee and their new FX drama series American Horror Story.
- Fox has made the unique decision to team up with Seth MacFarlane to produce Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey, a 13-part sequel to the Emmy-winning 1980 PBS docu-series from Carl Sagan.
- The folks behind Terra Nova are right on track with where that show needs to be, in order to have the episodes ready for their air dates, and Fox believes they’ve got a real shot with the epic series.
- Kevin Reilly is happy with where things are at with both Fringe and Bones, and hopes both of those series will be continuing with future seasons. And, although they are considering a Season 8 for House, even involved wants to be sure to go out on top creatively, so no decision has been made yet.
- An option has been extended with the cast of Breaking In, so there is still some slim hope that that series could return, at some point.
