'Bones' Renewed for Season 10, Moving Back to Mondays
Wednesday, January 29, 2014
FOX is offering Bones
fans a double dose of good news. First, the David Boreanaz and Emily
Deschanel drama has been officially renewed for a 10th season for next
year. Additionally, the show is moving back to Mondays starting in
The renewal not only ensures a 10th season will air in the fall, but is also means the show will reach its landmark 200th episode midway through next year.
Aside from the renewal, FOX announced that Bones will return to its Monday time slot later this season. After airing its final Friday night episode on January 31, Bones will go on a brief hiatus, but returns Monday, March 10 at 8pm to finish out season 9. Almost Human, which currently airs Mondays, will air its first season finale on March 3.
Meanwhile, a new season of Kitchen Nightmares will take over Fridays at 8pm starting February 21.
Bones, which began this season on Mondays, was moved to Fridays in November. As a result, it lost a sizeable chunk of its audience, but during its Friday night run, Bones actually gained back most of its audience. That must've been good enough for FOX, because after airing just seven episodes on Friday nights, it will escape the less-than-stellar time slot and anchor FOX's Mondays, leading into The Following.
Bones is the third hour-long series that FOX has officially confirmed will return for the 2014-2015 TV season. Sleepy Hollow was previously renewed for a second season, and FOX had already picked up Glee for its sixth and final season.
