Fox Orders Eighth Season of BONES

by     Posted 2 years, 265 days ago


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.

Casting Call: Adam Brody, William Peterson and Rob Corddry in Talks for SEEKING A FRIEND AT THE END OF THE WORLD; David Boreanaz in OFFICER DOWN

by     Posted 3 years, 231 days ago


We’ve got a couple of casting stories for you this evening. First up, Adam Brody, William Peterson and Rob Corddry are in talks to join Steve Carell and Keira Knightley in Seeking a Friend at the End of the World. The film, written by and marking the directorial debut of Lorene Scafaria, the writer of Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, centers on the events surrounding an asteroid spiraling towards Earth, threatening to end all life. Variety reports that Carell will play a man whose wife leaves him once the news of the world’s end hits, prompting him to seek out his high school sweetheart. Knightley stars as his neighbor and adventure companion.

Additionally, Bones star David Boreanaz is set the indie Officer Down. The flick stars Stephen Dorff, Dominic Purcell (Prison Break) and AnnaLynne McCord (90210), with Brian A. Miller making his directorial debut. Deadline reports that the story centers on a doctor and security guard who live out each other’s daytime lives in their dreams at night. The security guard murders his wife, and then is hit by a car sending him to the hospital where the doctor works. I’d say things get a little interesting from there. Boreanaz will play a rival detective oppposite the cop played by Dorff.

Fox Renews BONES for Seventh Season

by     Posted 3 years, 231 days ago


Though the series isn’t really my cup of tea, I’m sure plenty of fans will be glad to know that the Fox series Bones has been renewed for a seventh season. Series star David Boreanaz announced the news on his Twitter page last night (via TV Guide ) saying, “Season 7 is Go for Bones.” As of now the deal is for just one more season, so I suppose there’s the chance we could be looking at the last season for this long-running series. Now if we could just get the final word on another season for House M.D. that’d be great.

[Update: Fox has sent over a press release officially announcing the show's renewal.  Check it out after the jump.]
