The seventh season of Bones premiered on November 3, 2011. The first part of the season depicts Booth and Brennan preparing to raise their first child. (When did they get married?!) Anyway… this season went on a couple of hiatus, first they said they spare time slot for new Bones’ Spin-Off “Finder” which later got cancelled by the network after 13th episode, and one of lead actors Michael Clarke Duncan who portrayed the role of Leo, died of complications due to a heart attack in early September 2012.
Then the series went hiatus again, due to Emily Deschanel’s pregnancy and maternity leave. And finally, they decided to truncate the series to 13 episodes. Although there are four episodes which were already made but they decided to move them to air in the eighth season instead.
Season 8 will premiere on Monday September 17, 2012!
