The (very) subtle shade is out there.
In Tuesday’s Bones finale, Booth — at the tail end of a moving pep talk he was giving to a demoralized Brennan — attempted to cheer his wife up further by assuring her, “We’re way better than Mulder and Scully.” That was no mere throwaway line. The crack bookended a moment in the show’s pilot 12 years ago when Booth gave the iconic X-Files duo a similar — albeit more effusive — shout-out, telling Brennan, “We’re Scully and Mulder.”
After 12 seasons and eight time-slot moves, Bones (1.0/4) ended its run on Fox last night with a series finale that left the core cast alive and looking forward. While creator/executive producer Hart Hanson heavily hinted to Deadline that more tales of Brennan, Booth and the Jeffersonian Institute lab could come down the line, Tuesday's series finale certainly concluded things promisingly with a season high for the drama among adults 18-49 and total viewers with 4.19… »

Read no further if you haven’t seen the series finale (for now) of “Bones.” Spoilers ahead!
There are any number of ways to end a series. There’s the flat cut to black; the reveal that this has all been a dream. Most of them involve some level of controversy after the fact. But when it came time to end “Bones” after 12 seasons on Fox, showrunners Michael Peterson and Jonathan Collier wanted to send their characters riding off into the sunset fully intact. And so we ended not with a bang or a whimper, but with Booth and Brennan bantering into the black. Peterson called up Variety to discuss the very last episode of “Bones” — and why it may not be the very last episode of “Bones.”
Unlike some finales, we don’t get a special last line of dialogue — it’s more akin to the end of a regular episode. When »

On Tuesday, March 28, Fox's Bones aired its 246th and final episode. Created by Hart Hanson, the David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel starrer featured an astounding 3,000 actors who have worked on the procedural during its 12-season run. The series has featured 400 feet of intestines, 370 dead bodies and 250 skeletons as props, and it would take 6.8 days to watch every episode back-to-back. But perhaps most significant is the fact that Bones ranks as Fox's longest-running scripted drama series ever after enduring almost as many time slots. Here, creator Hart Hanson writes about how he said goodbye to »

Any way you slice it, Bones just gave us a very happy “End in the End.”
After 12 seasons, the Fox drama signed off Tuesday with a wistful, bittersweet and ultimately satisfying hour that found Big Bad Mark Kovac permanently neutralized (aka killed), Brennan’s temporary amnesia reversed and Cam ditching the Jeffersonian to start a new family with Arastoo (but not before promoting Hodgins into her post as lab director). Along the way, the series sort of resolved the enduring “447” mystery, paid tribute to the late Sweets and maybe revealed the gender of Angela’s unborn baby.

When Bones signs off on Tuesday night, after 12 seasons on Fox, it will do so as the network’s longest-running scripted drama, having solved -- according to finale promos -- 275 cases in 246 episodes. And that prolific conviction rate may not even be the most impressive thing that the series accomplished.
Because Bones -- which was based on the life and works of real-life forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs -- did more than just stay on the air, leapfrogging more than 20 different time slots in its 12-year run. In a television landscape populated with morose antiheroes and sarcastic protagonists that often poke fun at the earnestness of cops-and-science procedurals like Bones, sometimes directly by name (see: American Dad, Bojack Horseman, Bob’s Burgers and more), the show was a champion of justice and evidence, science and guts, “brains and heart.” It told new stories every week, while at the same time unfolding its central characters little by little, making »

It's the end of an era for Fox as Bones does its victory lap ahead of the last episode of the 12-season series. The emotions are running high, to say the least. To celebrate the Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz series, Fox assembled the cast and crew for a 20-minute retrospective on set of the series—but be warned: the video was shot in December 2016 as sets were already beginning to be dismantled. "I think it's the end of a village. It feels like you go back to a village and it's just gone," series creator Hart Hanson said. The cast and crew take you on a trip back in time to various sets and tools used by Booth, Brennan and co. over the years—even the disastrous ones. It's a »

Welcome to Remote Controlled, Variety’s podcast series featuring the best and brightest in television, both in front of and behind the camera.
This week’s episode features Variety executive editor of TV Debra Birnbaum and editor-at-large Michael Schneider in conversation with “Bones” creator and executive producer Hart Hanson about the final season of the fan-favorite Fox procedural, which ends its run this year after 12 seasons.
After creating the series, Hanson left the show in the hands of other showrunners, now Jonathan Collier and Michael Peterson, and compares the thought of returning to the set like returning to an old girlfriend. “It’s very bittersweet,” he says. “It’s better to be a distant step parent.”
That said, Hanson says he’s not at all upset about the network’s decision to cancel the show. “We were amazed when we got to finish a first season and then we were picked up for a second season,” he »

The truth is coming out at TCA winter press tour. Bones Ep Hart Hanson confirmed Fox cancelled Bones. It was not the creative team's decision to end the long-running procedural series. Although star Emily Deschanel echoed his sentiment, it seems David Boreanaz remained mum on the cancellation.Variety reports Hanson said, "It wasn’t our decision. We were told it was our last year. It wasn’t that we called that network and said, ‘We’d like to finish now'. I’m not sure anyone is terribly upset or terribly shocked that it’s our last year." Bones first premiered on Fox September 13, 2005.Read More… »
In an alternate universe, Bones could have been very different. Series creator Hart Hanson joined the cast and current executive producers of the series on a panel in front of the TV Critics' Association on Wednesday and revealed that had he not stepped down as showrunner in 2013, a few things on the show would be very different. First of all, one beloved character would still be alive. "When I first stopped running the show so that Stephen Nathan was running it, one of the first things he did was completely and utterly defy me and killed Sweets," Hanson said. "I would never have killed Sweets, but Stephen was running the show, and it obviously was a good idea." For those who »
TV revivals are big now but there is one broadcast network that is more enthusiastically embracing its past than any other. With their upcoming reboot of 24, the sequel series of Prison Break and news that The X-Files could continue for yet another season, Fox is really into making something old into something new. Fox's revival spree is so aggressive that TV Guide reports it's even possible the network could revive a show that hasn't even wrapped up yet. According to some comments by the creator, Hart Hanson, Bones might eventually get a revival of its own.
But, is this season really the end — or could the cast return for a reunion down the road?
Given the current nostalgia-filled television landscape, especially on Fox, which is home to revivals for “24,” “Prison Break,” and “The X-Files,” reporters asked the “Bones” cast and producers if they would ever be interested in a reboot or reunion series in the future.
“I think those things are always possible, and very desirable,” creator Hart Hanson responded at the Television Critics Association press tour on Wednesday in Pasadena, Calif.
With no real plans for a reunion underway — the show hasn’t even ended yet, after all — the cast weighed in on whether they would return for any sort of revival.
David Boreanaz said, “It’s very hard for me to answer that question, honestly »

Is there a chance Bones could return?
Fox’s long-running procedural was picked up for its 12th and final season last February, but the cast and creator addressed the possibility that it could be resurrected in the near future. (According to the creative team, it was not their idea to end the show after season 12.)
“I think those things are always possible and very desirable,” creator Hart Hanson told reporters at the show’s final Television Critics Association session on Wednesday.

“Everything is possible in life, but I tend to like to go forward,” Boreanaz said of a potential reboot, adding, “In general, I don’t like reunions and I don’t like to »
Turns out the decision to end Bones was not exactly a mutual one.
During the series’ final Television Critics Association press tour panel on Wednesday, series creator Hart Hanson revealed that the network made the final call to conclude the show after 12 years.
“It wasn’t our decision,” Hanson shared. “We were told it was our last year. It wasn’t that we called the network and said, ‘We’d like to finish it.’ [But] I’m not sure anyone was terribly upset or terribly shocked that it would be our last year.”
Added leading lady Emily Deschanel: “We had a really good run. »
