Fox has confirmed that Bones has been renewed for a 12th season, which will also be its last. The final season will consist of just 12 episodes that will allow producers to bring it to a “meaningful and satisfying conclusion” according to Fox Co-Chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman.
Executive Producers and Showrunners, Jonathan Collier and Michael Peterson issued a joint statement which said:
We couldn’t be more thrilled to have another season, so we can give the show, characters and fans the end they so richly deserve. Also knowing there is a Season 12, we can now write the most rewarding Season 11 finale possible – one we hope will leave our fans excited fir what’s to come in this final season of Bones.
Series creator, Hart Hanson said, “In times like these, marked by instability and doubt, it’s comforting to know the world can count on at least one dependable beacon of stability. Apparently,, that beacon is Bones. It just shows what you can do with an amalgam of genius cast, amazing crew, cunning writers, stalwart studio sweat, a tough economy, a mercurial network, determination, luck, magic, miracles and the most loyal audience in the world.
