Bones Returns on April 5 With Episode 7.07, ‘The Prisoner in the Pipe’
Fox has confirmed that Bones will be returning to its old timeslot on Thursday April 5, after its replacement spin-off series The Finder completes a thirteen episode run on March 29. The show was on hiatus due to star Emily Deschanel’s maternity leave, and the total number of episodes that will be filmed for the season is still up in the air. According to The Hollywood Reporter, president of Fox Entertainment Kevin Reilly has reported that 17 episodes have been ordered, but there is a possibility of an additional 5 episodes if scheduling permits. Episodes 14 through 17, plus any possible additional episodes, may either be aired over the summer or held until next season.
The Prisoner in the Pipe, starring Emily Deschanel as Brennan and David Boreanaz as Booth, is scheduled to air Thursday April 5 at 9 PM ET/PT on Fox.
[Spoiler Alert! This is very possibly the episode in which Brennan gives birth to Booth’s baby (finally)!]
