According to The Hollywood Reporter, supporting cast-members Michaela Conlin, T.J. Thyne, Tamara Taylor and John Francis Daley have secured new deals that will see their salaries raised to the mid-five figures per episode, in exchange for an extra season on their contracts. The negotiations were particularly pressing for Conlin and Thyne, whose contracts were set to run out at the end of this season.
Now, if the show is picked up for an eighth season -- which seems likely, given this news -- fans can rest assured that all of the regular cast will return.
There's a lot of goo, gunk, exploding body parts and creepy crawly bugs to get you in the Halloween mood. Plus, the cast and crew talk about the holiday, what more could you ask for? Oh right, new episodes. 'Bones' Season 7 premieres Thurs., Nov. 3, 9PM ET on Fox.
Check out the video and upcoming episode descriptions below!
Series star David Boreanaz broke the news on Twitter (while watching a Flyers playoff game).
"OT! Orange and Black craziness! Oh, Season 7 is GO for Bones," Boreanaz tweeted.
"'Bones' is creatively fresh, it's a rock-solid player every time it airs and this season it has helped us win on Thursday nights for the first time in our history," Kevin Reilly, president of entertainment at Fox Broadcasting Company, said in a statement. "Hart Hanson and the fantastic cast and crew, as well as the millions of loyal 'Bones' fans, make this show really special, and I'm excited to have it on our air for another stellar season."
Along with 'House,' 'Bones' has anchored Fox's dramatic lineup. The series, now in its sixth season, recently featured a backdoor pilot for a possible spinoff, 'The Finder,' starring Geoff Stults and Michael Clarke Duncan.
After five years lighting up the screen alongside his co-star Jared Padalecki, episode 604 -- titled 'Weekend at Bobby's' -- will see Ackles step behind the camera for his directorial debut. (Check out our special look behind the scenes of the episode here.)
Ackles' turn behind the camera got us thinking about some of our other favorite TV stars who have recently hopped into the director's chair, so we've compiled a list of six awesome actors (aside from Ackles) who have taken the helm on their own shows in the past few years -- take a peek at our picks after the jump.
Boreanaz walked onto the stage. As the two were about to hug, he swooped in to kiss Ferguson, who quickly recoiled. Then the host pretended to allow a peck on the cheek, and Boreanaz turned to Ferguson's lips at the last minute. Again, he was rebuffed.
But then it was Ferguson who planted a smooch on the actor's lips. Wasn't it? See for yourself in the clip.
"You said you wanted to kiss me!" said Boreanaz. Ferguson replied, "Right on the lips, man!? Now I can't stop thinking about you!"
Boreanaz said he was going help Hagan land a major role on the Fox' hit, then proceeded to send her inappropriate sexually explicit text messages and behave in a sexually aggressive way, according to the lawsuit. It is also alleged Boreanaz acted sexually inappropriate while the two were in a car together.
"You got to be really careful in that Indonesian jungle, OK?" said Booth, staring longingly into her eyes.
"Booth, in a week you're going to a war zone ... Please, just don't be you," she replied.
So ... any physical affection? Like, say, of the kissing variety? Watch the video to find out.
Her terrifying dream includes a screaming, bloody Hodgins on a moving conveyor belt and water rushing over a trapped Booth as he pounds on the glass to break free. As for her own fate, Brennan gets buried alive.
(S05E19) "It's not music. It's rock and roll, baby." - Booth to Brennan
This week's 'Bones' may have had a rock 'n' roll theme since it's "Fox Rocks Week," but the real topic on almost every character's mind was ... sex! Then again, there is a saying that pairs sex and rock 'n' roll together, so it was probably fitting to have both go hand in hand in 'The Rocker in the Rinse Cycle.'
In this episode, Booth and Brennan rocked the place while investigating (see picture above for proof), Cam found a gynecologist for Michelle, while Arastoo compared everything and anything to baseball!
We too are glad that Booth is out there to save the day and especially that he is played by cutie David Boreanaz, no? However, I'm not sure 'Bones' fans were as glad to see Catherine Bryan, played by Rena Sofer, out there with Booth as it puts yet another obstacle between Booth and Brennan's potential coupling.

(S05E17) Okay, boys and girls, here's the deal...
For some reason unbeknownst to me, my Stupid DVR (name brand) did not record this week's installment of 'Bones.' This, despite the fact that I set it up as a series recording. Of course, I can blame it on the kids, but that wouldn't be fair to them (I need to save that blame for when I do something stupid).
Until I can catch the episode on the Interwebs, I'm going to leave this post open for you, the wonderful and caring readers of TV Squad, to comment on the show. Let us know how you felt about this post-'I love you, but we're just friends' episode of the series, and if you think their new relationship will actually work until they eventually fall passionately into each others' arms sometime around season 33.
You can also let me know if the same mystery DVR loss has ever happened to you. That'll make me feel a little bit better.
(Update: You can now see the review after the jump)
