A possible swine flu outbreak has unfortunately reached the set of Bones, the FOX procedural drama starring David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel. The news was confirmed by none other than Bones series creator Hart Hanson, who turned to his Twitter page to vent out his dismay.

"First time in Bones history we are shut down from production," Hanson tweeted. "Damn swine flu! That's gonna cut into Christmas hiatus."

Production on the show was shut down today because lead star Boreanaz was sick with flu-like symptoms, a show spokesperson confirmed, although it's unclear if he actually has the H1N1 bug.

"David is out with the flu and the show shut down today since he was in every scene," the spokesman said. "We hope to resume production tomorrow."

After Hanson tweeted the production shutdown, rumors about Boreanaz having swine flu quickly spread like wildfire so the big man behind Bones later took to Twitter again to clarify that it doesn't look like David has the swine flu at all.

"There is no indication that Boreanaz has swine flu," he wrote. "We expect him back tomorrow. I'm now going out to get swine flu myself in atonement."

Here's hoping that Boreanaz will recover soon and that Bones will resume production shortly.
