Betty White is headed to Bones.

No, that doesn't mean she's down to nothing but flesh and bones in her old age--she is, after all, 93. Instead, Betty White is set to join Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz on an episode of the Fox procedural crime drama-comedy Bones during the show's new season this fall.

Betty White will play the role of Dr. Beth Mayer, a forensic anthropologist said to have even more experience than Temperance Brennan (Deschanel's character). Brought in to assist on a murder that's linked to fantasy football, a possible rivalry between the two experts could ensue.

It was just this past June that Hot in Cleveland, the popular sitcom on which Betty White starred, ended. And while one might expect that at 93 she'd be ready to retire, White seems ready for anything but.

Betty White joined Instagram this summer, showing fans she has some youth left in her yet. She presently boasts more than 200,000 followers.

Bones returns for its 11th season this fall on October 1st. The episode on which Betty White guest stars is set for later in the month.

Will you be tuning in to see Betty White's character take on Temperance Brennan's on Bones?

Are you amazed at what the actress still does at the age of 93?
