Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz will be back for an 11th season of Bones. Fans learned this week that 20th Century Fox TV closed deals with both Deschanel and Boreanaz. Their contracts were up at the end of season 10.
According to a report from Deadline little will change on the Bones set. Changes will take place, however, but will all be behind the scenes.
Executive producer Jonathan Collier and co-EP Michael Peterson have been named new showrunners. The show’s most recent showrunner, Stephen Nathan, is taking a leave.
In addition to Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz–TJ Thyne, Michaela Conlin, and John Boyd are all returning for the 11th season of Bones. Creator and executive producer Hart Hanson is coming back as well.

Bones is based on forensic anthropology and forensic archaeology. Each episode focuses on an FBI case file concerning the mystery behind human remains brought in by FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth (played by David Boreanaz) to forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan (played by Emily Deschanel).
Bones premiered on Fox back in September of 2005, and despite its steady viewership has never been a huge hit. Those steady viewers, however, have once again helped ensure its return.
Emily Deschanel is married to actor and writer David Hornsby, and is expecting their second child.
Are you a Bones fan? Are you excited to learn you can see the investigative interaction–and comedy, too–between Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz for at least one more season?
