The release date for Bones season 12 — January 3, 2017
This article has the most up-to-date info on the status of Bones season 12 as we continuously monitor the news to keep you in the know. FOX has scheduled the premiere date for a new season for January 3, 2017.
Bones is an American crime procedural drama TV series that focuses on FBI cases that concern the mystery behind human remains. Created by Hart Hanson, the series first aired in September of 2005 with season 11 premiering on FOX on October 1, 2015.
Special Agent Seeley Booth is an Army sniper turn FBI agent. He distrusts science when it comes to solving crimes and prefers good old methods of surveillance and interrogation. Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan is a forensics anthropologist who works at Jeffersonian Institution and is impressive in her ways of finding clues from bones and badly decomposed bodies. It’s no wonder that the Bureau calls her to assist with investigations that standard methods simply don’t work for. As the time goes by and they have more joint cases behind their belts, Booth and Brennan begin to respect each other not only professionally, but personally as well.
In season 11, Booth and Brennan have two children together and return to the jobs they have quit before. Without giving out too many spoilers, we will simply say that, as usual, bodies that are decomposed or burned beyond recognition are found and present missing phalanges and other challenges to Booth and Brennan.
Although Bones has been extremely popular with the viewers, it is unclear at this moment whether the series will come back next year. If FOX does decide to pick up the show for another season, we will see Bones Season 12 at some point next year.
Season 11 recap
The 11th season of Fox`s veteran procedural series Bones has wrapped up on July 21, 2016. The final 22nd episode, “The Nightmare in the Nightmare”, was broadcast with viewership at season low of 3.74 million viewers, perhaps due to the fact that the West Coast broadcast overlapped with Donald Trump`s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention, cutti off the first half of the season finale. The final episode was in fact re-aired on the West Coast. During the last episode the team is continuing their investigation of the “Puppeteer” serial murderer. Brennan is feeling guilty for losing time during her short period of retirement, while Booth figures out the identity of the killer. Brennan also becomes the victim of a kidnapping by perpetrator later revealed as Zack Addy. The next, 12th season was announced as the final one for the popular series, and is set to contain 12 episodes. It is scheduled for release in early 2016.
