Bones Spoilers: Season 9 Brings Turmoil, Change And More Terror From Pelant

Hodgins and Angela will have some drama to endure when season 9 of Bones premieres. An unexpected third party disrupts their blissfull-ish family, however it’s not what you’re thinking.

“Hodgins is going to have to deal with a new family member,” previews exec producer Stephen Nathan, “and that will impact both Hodgins and Angela and their relationship.” Are we talking a brother? Sister? Cousin once removed and then put back? “I don’t want to say,” he demurs. “The way it comes out is such a surprise; it’s somebody that he wouldn’t know.” Look for the family reunion to take place within Season 9?s first 10 episodes.
