Bones Season 12 is very much in the realm of possibility, at least according to the show’s executive producers Jonathan Collier and Michael Peterson.
Despite missing the Cancellation Reaper’s blade by a whisker back in May, the duo tell TVGuide that they are not approaching Season 11 as the last in the series.
“There’s a ton of energy in the show. The reboot’s been great for us creatively. There’s an awful lot of stories to tell, so we love that. Beyond that, it’s not our decision. If it becomes a decision to end it, it’s a network decision, and we will obviously do something that’s satisfying for our fans, but we love where we are right now.
Peterson believes that, renewal permitting, there’s enough life in Bones for “many” more seasons:
“I’ve been on the show now for seven seasons, and this is my family. My idea is I’m going to retire with the show, and I’m only 41 right now. So, I don’t see any reason to move towards an end. I see storylines that we could do for a long, long, long time. … I’d love to go many, many, many more seasons. So, my intention is to make it such a season that there’s no doubt that we’ll get picked up and keep on going.”
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the cancel/renew status of Bones…
