Most Bones fans will likely agree with its title character (Emily Deschanel) when Brennan declares to her intended, Booth (David Boreanaz), "We've waited long enough." The wait is over, as the brusque forensic anthropologist and her impetuous FBI baby-daddy finally head to the altar — although for most of this endearing episode (Monday, 8/7c), nearly everyone in the Jeffersonian lab, including a full complement of returning Squints, is laying bets that the wedding will never happen. There's a new case, after all, and the real challenge is to keep Bones from becoming too distracted. Cyndi Lauper (returning as psychic Avalon Harmonia) is on hand to perform at the ceremony, but what she should really be singing is "Get Tempe to the Church on Time." There are additional complications and intimations of cold feet before the lovely finish, but Angela (Michaela Conlin) probably says it best: "You don't want your fingers to »

It's real -- after more than eight seasons, Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) and Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) are finally getting married on "Bones." Wedding photos from "The Woman in White" make it look like the event will indeed happen as planned too.
This is a very good thing.
Of course, before any wedding can happen on a show like "Bones," the team has to solve a gruesome murder.
There's also a bit of drama when Booth finds a duffle bag stuffed with cash. Why does Max (Ryan O'Neal) have something like that?
At least Booth has Aldo Clemens (Mather Zickel) to counsel him these days.
They brought Parker (Ty Panitz) back for the wedding! He's getting so big!
Angela (Michaela Conlin) is of course the maid of honor.
Here comes the bride!
It looks like Booth and Max got over the whole bag-of-money thing.
Look who's conducting the ceremony!
The ratings for Bones have been declining over the past few seasons. Will they continue to fall or will they start to rise? Could it be in danger of being cancelled or is it a lock to be renewed for season 11 on Fox? Stay tuned!
Bones revolves around a forensic anthropologist and an FBI agent who now share more than just cases. The cast includes Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz, Michaela Conlin, Tj Thyne, Tamara Taylor, and John Francis Daley.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- typically the following morning, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

The premise behind Fox’s Bones has always felt as it was straining against credulity. After all, how many bizarre murders occur that require a dedicated team of forensic anthropologists? Well, the answer appears to be eight and counting although with season nine now airing, it’s also starting to sag under its own weight and age. As a result, the cases have taken a back seat to meta stories and character arcs that never feel fully explored.
At the end of the seventh season, Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan (Emily Deschanel) took her infant son and abandoned her lover, FBI Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) and was on the run after a series of unbelievable charges were leveled against her by the sadistic Pelant (Andrew Leeds). We open the eighth season, out now on home video from 20th Century Home Entertainment, several months later as the couple is reunited. However, »

After being cut short in it’s seventh season, Bones returns to DVD for it’s eighth and latest season (at least on DVD and Blu-ray) which sees Brennan finally cleared of an unjust murder accusation and reunited with Booth and the squints. Although the team crack some of their most challenging cases yet, dangerous madman Christopher Pelant (Andrew Lees) persists with his murderous rampage. But with Brennan in his target range he is inching ever closer to Bones and Booth each day. Meanwhile, as if the challenges Booth faces with fatherhood and his unique relationship with Bones aren’t enough, his mother shows up after a 24-year absence, and there is shocking news regarding some of his colleagues…
I’ll admit it has been some time since I’ve watched a full season of Bones, »

When "Bones" Season 9 returns with new episodes, Booth and Brennan may not be in the best place, romantically. Booth did, after all, break off their engagement on the orders of serial killer Christopher Pelant.
But at least the couple will be getting together soon. A wedding is expected sooner rather than later, and spoilers indicate that it is going to be an impressive affair.
Does having a real spouse attend a TV wedding make the ceremony more comfortable or more awkward? Fans of "Bones" will soon have an answer to that: Emily Deschanel's real husband, David Hornsby ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"), will be at the wedding. He may even be the priest that marries Booth and Brennan after all these years.
E!Online first reported the news, having confirmed that Hornsby will be in the episode and putting that together with a hint from David Boreanaz »

Booth and Brennan will get married on Bones Season 9. This much we know.
But who will land the role of Maid of Honor in this highly anticipated wedding?
I saw Michaela Conlin this week at the annual Fox Eco Casino Fall TV party and asked the actress this question, while also learning Angela’s point of view on the events from the May finale, along with when she'll cross paths with Pelant. In anticipation of Monday's big premiere, scroll down for excerpts from our exclusive Q&A...
TV Fanatic: Angela has a very strong stance regarding the Booth/Brennan rift that she is very vocal about. When you first read the script, did you think that maybe it was too harsh or did you think she said exactly what she should?
Michaela Conlin: I was wondering what [the writers] were up to. What’s going to happen here? But really »

After a few mediocre episodes in a row, Bones gives its fans proof that, with the right script, it’s still capable of heart-stopping entertainment.
Right from the start, viewers are thrown into the chaos of a lab about to receive a potentially dangerous set of remains and director Chad Lowe amps up the tension using quick cuts and a score with a fast tempo as opposed to streams of dialogue. This pace only quickens as the episode progresses, making the final moments that much more explosive.
‘The Pathos in the Pathogens’ also utilizes the chemistry of the show’s actors to present a solid ensemble piece. Each member of the team – from Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Angela (Michaela Conlin) in the lab to Sweets (John Francis Daley) and Booth (David ...

There are those who say "Bones" is past its prime. That the show is little more than a basic procedural that likes to show us disgusting human remains. That there isn't much point anymore.
To those people, I would like to present "The Corpse on the Canopy." With the return of evil mastermind Christopher Pelant, this episode proves that "Bones" has still got exactly what has made it an excellent show for 8 seasons.
Relive the excellence with this recap.
Pelant says good morning!
You know what's not a fun thing to wake up to? A screaming baby and a corpse dripping on your head. Alas, that's what Pelant (Andrew Leeds) gives Hodgins (T.J. Thyne) and Angela (Michaela Conlin) at the beginning of "The Corpse on the Canopy."
The sinister wake-up call also involves knockout gas and flowers circling little Michael Vincent. Add in the flayed and deconstructed body of our murder victim, »
For the fourth time in two seasons, the Bones universe is invaded by Christopher Pelant (Andrew Leeds), the genius, psychotic killer with the crosshairs of his target fixed on the Jeffersonian crew. What started out in season 7 as a bored man’s desire to match wits with the best crime-solving team the FBI has going for them has evolved into an all-out grudge match between the two.
Making things more interesting is Booth’s (David Boreanaz) unwavering commitment to staying on the side of the law, no matter how far below the belt Pelant hits.
Tonight’s episode – “The Corpse on the Canopy” – marked an all-time low for this evil genius whose opening act is just about as creepy and gross as it gets. A very woozy Hodgins (Tj Thyne) and Angela (Michaela Conlin) awaken to ...

Pelant is back! The rather evil and technologically impressive Christopher Pelant (Andrew Leeds) makes his triumphant return to "Bones" in "The Corpse on the Canopy." Can the Jeffersonian team stop him this time around?
Maybe. Maybe not. These videos from the episode give us a clue.
The corpse in the title of this episode is rather impressive in its grotesqueness.
You have to really want to send a message to get a corpse looking like that. It's no surprise that Hodgins (T.J. Thyne) would jump to the conclusion that Pelant did it.There may be something creepier than leaving flower petals in a baby's crib, but we don't want to know what it is."Flaying and flowers. That settles it -- it's Pelant." -- Booth (David Boreanaz) is not wrong hereOh right. Hodgins almost killed Pelant.Will they actually investigate this case alone? Could Booth just kill the guy in »
One of the last times Jack Hodgins (T.J. Thyne, left) was face-to-face with serial killer Christopher Pelant (Andrew Leeds), the scientist almost strangled him to death. And in tonight’s episode of Bones, Pelant is out to prove that he didn’t appreciate being treated that way.
Step one in his revenge? Turning Hodgins and Angela’s (Michaela Conlin, not pictured) home into a crime scene.
” rears his ugly head yet again and in a brutal, horrific way,” teases Thyne. ” the stress is now ten-fold because Jack isn’t just protecting himself, he’s got a wife and a child to protect. »

Everybody's favorite genius/tech-geek/psychopathic killer is back in the upcoming "Bones" episode, "The Corpse in the Canopy." And, as always, the evil Christopher Pelant is turning everything into part of his personal vendetta against the Jeffersonian.
The difference is that this time Hodgins and Angela are the most direct targets.
The latest of Pelant's (guest star Andrew Leeds) attempts to terrify and destroy our "Bones" heroes begins when Hodgins (T.J. Thyne) and Angela (Michaela Conlin) awaken to discover an unpleasant surprise atop the canopy of their bed. Somehow, Pelant has placed a dead body up there.
At least this time it doesn't look like anyone at the Jeffersonian is a strong suspect. Da Caroline Jordan (Patricia Belcher) shows up to deal with the case, but at least she's working with the team.
Since the corpse seems to be nothing but fleshy, dripping bones (yuck), the main parts of the »

The corpse’s appearance, of course, corresponds with the return of the dastardly Pelant, which sets Booth and Brennan on a race to capture the killer.
“Pelant comes back, directly targeting Hodgins and Angela,” Michaela Conlin tells TVLine. As exec producer Stephen Nathan previously teased, the brilliant baddie “is coming back in a really extreme way. »
