Bones is back. The long-running Fox series has been renewed for next season, which will mark the fan favorite show's ninth year on the air.
Bones' executive producers believe Booth and Brennan still have plenty of obstacles to overcome this season. But they don't all have to be so serious!
Case in point: Monday's episode (8/7c, Fox) finds Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) struggling with Booth's decision to invite Sweets (John Francis Daley) to be their houseguest. And it won't be very long before Booth realizes three's a crowd.

All will not be forgiven when Bones returns this fall.
In the Season 7 finale, Brennan (Emily Deschanel) left Booth (David Boreanaz) in the dust to go on the lam with her former convict father Max (guest star Ryan O'Neal) after she was framed for murder by hacker/serial killer Christopher Pelant (Andrew Leeds). When the Fox drama's action picks up three months later this fall (Monday, Sept. 17 at 8/7c), Brennan will still be off the grid and Booth will be called to action to bring his baby mama home.

During Bones' seventh season, Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) survived becoming a couple, cohabitation, and childbirth. But is their biggest test yet to come?
After Brennan was framed for murder by hacker/serial killer Christopher Pelant (Andrew Leeds) in the Season 7 finale, she took baby Christine and left Booth for parts unknown with her former convict father Max (guest star Ryan O'Neal). Although Brennan seemed to have a good reason — if she stays off the grid, she can perhaps prove her innocence without Pelant using his digital prowess against her — how will Booth feel about being abandoned?
