Fox Orders More 'Bones' -- But There's a Catch

BonesGood -- and "weird" -- news, 'Bones' fans! Fox has ordered four more scripts, adding to the current 13-episode order.

According to TVLine, six episodes of 'Bones' will air this fall (Thurs., Nov. 3 at 9PM ET on Fox), then the show will go on break to accommodate Emily Deschanel's pregnancy. 'The Finder' will fill the gap on Fox's schedule with the addition seven episodes airing in the spring.

The extra four? They might air over the summer or become part of Season 8 ... if there is an eighth season.

Stephen Nathan, 'Bones' executive producer, told TVLine that the show is still approaching episode 13 as the Season 7 finale.

"And then there will ultimately be four more episodes that we can play with," he said.

"[Fox] could run them on a different night, they could run them in the summer, or they could hold them for fall."

The extra four episodes will be written as standalone episodes, sort of a mini-season.

"It's weird, and it's a challenge," Nathan said. "But we'll do it."

I hope Bones continues, one of my fav shows. Not sure why they need a break as she is pregnant, she is preganr with Booth's baby so it could be writen into the story line anyway.

Angela and Hodgins delivered a healthy baby girl... Really when did that happen? Last I saw and heard they had a boy and named him Michael. If you don't watch the show don't bother writing about it because you end up sounding stupid.

I watched Bones until I discovered what pig David Boreanaz is. I lost interest after that.

He is an actor. I don't care for him as a person but his part on Bones is fabulous! If we watched movies of only those people we approved of down the line there would never have been any great movie stars.
