Bones received two pieces of good news Wednesday.
The veteran drama has been officially renewed for a 10th season, Fox announced. The network also revealed that it will move the series from Fridays back to Mondays at 8/7c on March 10.
"Over the course of nine seasons, Bones has grown from a hit crime procedural into a beloved pillar of our lineup that resonates with fans in a way that only the best of shows can," Fox's Chairman of Entertainment, Kevin Reilly, said in a statement. "Our viewers have embraced Emily, David and the entire cast and characters of Bones as their very own, and I think they are going to love what Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan have planned for Season 10!"
The new season of Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares will take over Bones' Friday timeslot beginning Feb. 28 at 8/7c with a visit back to the infamous Amy's Baking Company. Sci-fi drama Almost Human will air its first season finale on Monday, March 3 at 8/7c.
The renewal means that Bones will hit a big milestone — its 200th episode — sometime next season.
Bones' renewal comes as no surprise. However, it's unclear whether Season 10 will be its last. Reilly told several reporters at the Television Critics Association winter press tour earlier this month that Season 10 would likely be its last. This upcoming season will see longtime executive producer Stephen Nathan take over showrunner duties from creator Hart Hanson, who is also working on the upcoming Fox drama Backstrom.
