Now that Bones has officially been picked up for an 8th season, the spoilers are starting roll in. Bones finally returns to our screens Monday! There’s not much left to spoil for the highly anticipated arrival of baby Bones in “The Prisoner In The Pipe”, but I can tease season 8 of Bones! According to EP Stephan Nathan and creator Hart Hanson, some neglected characters will be getting some much needed screen time and story arcs.
After the baby storyline was integrated into the current season (which finally returns Monday!) a few things were put on a the backburner and could resurface next season. Among them? A personal storyline with Cam, and according to EP Hart Hanson, “a Hodgins family surprise.” “Our hands were a little bit tied this year because of the five fewer episodes, we weren’t able to give some of the other characters that we love, Hodgins and Cam, more extensive arcs,” said fellow EP Stephen Nathan in a conference call with reporters.
