Bones EP Stephan Nathan spoiled about the highly anticipated, upcoming season 7. With additional episodes already confirmed we’ll have more time with our favorite crime fighting duo. The Bones bits include Finder crossover deets, Best episode ever nomination and much more.

“They do want to do ultimately 17 episodes, and how it airs is up to Fox,” Nathan told TV Line during a Wednesday conference call with reporters. “They could air before what we consider to be our last episode even. We have no idea. It’s a real pickle for us because we don’t quite know where to place these four stories in our universe,” Hanson told me. For example, “If they air all in a row, it’d be odd because they would not contain any meaningful character arcs.”

  • MORE CROSSOVERS WITH THE FINDER | In addition to the episode in which Dr. Sweets~John Francis Daley travels to Florida to perform an FBI psych eval on the spin-off’s titular character, Walter~played by Geoff Stults, Hanson says they are also closing in on an episode in which Hodgins~ T.J. Thyne heads south to rigorously bat around conspiracy theories with Walter. “We’re also looking to see if there’s a place for Stephen Fry to appear in a Finder episode, as Gordon Gordon Wyatt,” Hanson shared. The Finder‘s freshman run will air during Bones‘ maternity leave hiatus, which begins after Episode 6.
  • BEST. EPISODE. EVER? | The Season 7 hour involving Booth, his grandfather~played by Ralph Waite and by extension Booth’s father, “is maybe one of the best episodes of Bones ever,” said Hanson. “It’s certainly an amazing performance by David Boreanaz that I’m dying for everyone to see.”
  • WHO’S THE NANNY? | “We think we have a pretty good idea for who should take care of the baby” while the parents are off solving grisly murders, Hanson teased. ” Added Nathan, “That’s after the first six [pre-hiatus episodes], but it’ll be a lot of fun.”
