David Boreanaz believes the future of Bones is uncertain, despite the confidence of showrunner Stephen Nathan over Season 11.
With actor contracts up for renegotiation the end of Bones Season 10, Boreanaz says an eleventh season is currently based on “theory and hope,” but believes the ball is ultimately in Fox’s court.
He told Assignment X:
I think when we cross that bridge, we’ll have to see what happens, but it’s really up to Fox. They have to decide what they want to do. They’re the ultimate people that decide. I mean, someone can say, “I hope it comes back,” but there’s a lot of theory and hope. So I love Peter Rice, I love Fox, I love [Fox Television Group Chairmans/CEOs] Dana [Walden] and Gary [Newman], I met with them through the BUFFY years, through the ANGEL years, through the BONES years, and I’m so excited and happy for them to be actually helping the network and the studio at the same time [Walden and Newman arrived at their current positions this year]. I think it’s smart on a business level and Peter is a very good friend of mine, and when it comes to business, it’s the love of the show and the value of where it is for them. It’s a very valuable show and when that time comes, and when they come to us and if they would like to do something, we’ll see what we do.
