Fox Renews 'Bones' for Seventh Season
by Lesley Goldberg

Fox has renewed its forensic drama series Bones for a seventh season,
with a formal announcement expected to come as soon as Tuesday.

The news comes after another round of down-to-the-wire negotiations
between host network Fox and its sister studio 20th TV. The cast and
crew of Bones found themselves in a similar situation in the spring of
2009, when talks dragged on until just before Fox’s upfront
presentation to advertisers.

On a conference call with reporters last month, showrunner Hart Hanson
said that he was "confident" a deal would be reached for the show’s
seventh season. What isn’t as clear is how the show will handle star
Emily Deschanel's pregnancy, with Hanson noting a host of potential
options, including a shorter season or a collection of episodes that
don’t feature Deschanel.

Star David Boreanaz first announced news of Bones' renewal on Twitter,
tweeting: "Season 7 is GO for Bones."

The network has a potential Bones spinoff starring Geoff Stults in
contention. The back-door pilot, which aired in late April, drew 11
million viewers.
Oh... is this still on?
Yes, and that's GOOD news.  The bad news: "CSI:Miami" and "Criminal
Minds:Suspect Behavior" are also still on.
