The actor, who plays Special Agent Seeley Booth, has taken to Twitter to imply the series will end with its 8th season. Such hints included he’ll be a “free agent” after next Spring and “the Bones fair-well tour is in full-swing.”
The hints didn’t stop there though as Boreanaz also said that next month’s Comic Con in San Diego “should be a blast and quite possibly the last for Bones Farewell tour? Look forward to seeing everyone there”.
Needless to say you couldn’t make the hints any more obvious really – there is no other way of reading those tweets. Or is there? Because insiders have told Entertainment Weekly that Bones isn’t dead yet.
However, the drama’s seventh season did see a drop in ratings from the sixth season – falling by an average of 2 million viewers. Spin-off series The Finder failed to take off with viewers and was dispatched after just one season. So perhaps Fox wants to end Bones while it’s still on a “high” of sorts instead of it lingering and slowing declining?
