Listen up, Bones fans! We’ve got some good news and some bad news.
The good news is that the hit Fox procedural has been renewed for a 12th season. The bad? Season 12 will be the series’ very last one.
“As sad as it is to know something you have loved doing for 11 years will be ending, I am so glad we will have the opportunity to end it well,” star Emily Deschanel tweeted.
David Boreanaz also took to social media to confirm the news, tweeting, “Thank you Fans. Above and Beyond.”
But before you start sobbing about having to say goodbye to Booth and Brennan, Fox promised on Thursday that the final season will be immensely satisfying for the fans.
“Bones has been part of the fabric of our network and studio for over a decade, and during that time it has attracted one of the most devoted fan bases we’ve ever seen,” said Fox CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman in a statement. “So it was extremely important to us and to Hart, the producers and the cast that we send the show off in a way that gives those loyal fans a meaningful and satisfying conclusion.”
Bones returns for its spring premiere Thursday, April 14 on Fox.
