The hit drama series Bones, following highly skilled forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz), is currently wrapping up its ninth season, with its finale on May 19th and a tenth season already lined up. In its final episode of the season, entitled “The Recluse in the Recliner,” directed by David Boreanaz, Booth becomes a target in an ongoing investigation, and the team has to try to figure out who is behind the death of a conspiracy blog writer, Wesley Foster. As they dig deeper into the man’s death, it’s evident that Booth may be in over his head and his future with the FBI is put into question.
During this recent interview to discuss Season 9 and look ahead to Season 10, co-stars David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel, who are also producers on the show, talked about the challenges of a season finale, whether either of them would ever consider writing for the show, why the case in the finale is an unusual investigation, how the finale will affect Booth and Bones’ relationship with each other and everyone else, getting to share such great chemistry with a co-star for so many seasons, how much they’ve enjoyed seeing their characters develop, and how they prefer to live in the moment than know their characters’ future. Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
