Fox Orders Six Scripts for ‘Bones’ for 2009-10 Season

Mar 24, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Fox is moving closer to picking up another batch of “Bones.”
The network just ordered six scripts of the 20th Century Fox TV crime drama, with an eye to using the episodes during the 2009-10 season. While not an official renewal, the script order is a good sign that the network plans to greenlight “Bones” for a fifth season later this spring.
“Bones” has long been one of Fox’s best utility players. The network has aired the show in five different timeslots since its 2005 debut, and it’s always managed to draw an audience.
The series has proven to be a particularly potent weapon for Fox this year, helping the network establish a solid presence on Thursday nights. Since relocating to Thursdays in January, “Bones” has boosted Fox’s season-to-date average in the 8 p.m. timeslot by 43% in adults 18 to 49 and by a whopping 74% in overall viewers.
More impressively, “Bones” has scored victories against ABC’s “Ugly Betty” and NBC’s comedies.

  1. Bones is the best show on TV when it’s on.

  2. Go Bones! It would be great to have a Season Five and an excellent idea for FOX to keep the show in one timeslot for a least a few episodes!!

  3. Yes! Bones is a fabulous show and totally worth the time you take to watch it. Great characters, great moments. The show gets better every week!

  4. =) Yeah! more Bones for us bonesheads :D

  5. I just wish Fox would treat Bones better. 5 different nights in 4 seasons, pre-empting the show at the drop of a hat… Even threatening to air the much-anticipated S4 finale next season! What, there’s some unwritten law about ending the season one week later than initially planned? Unbelievable. You’d think they’d have a little respect for such a stable show, and treat Bones’ audience better.

  6. I absolutely love Bones. It is the highlight of my week and even my day as I watch reruns almost daily.
    It’s called addiction. But what can I do? David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel are just so adorable and fiery together. Watching always cheers me up.
    They should renew at least to season 8. I’m always going to watch it.

  7. I just wish they’d pick it up. It’s done everything they could want it to do and it deserves a full pickup instead of this maybe/maybe not sh@t.

  8. bones is the best show on tv watch it every week hope fox will pick it up for next season

  9. Yay!! I was going to boycott fox if they didn’t renew Bones so this looks like a good sign that they will! They would be really stupid if they didn’t because I think Bones has the most loyal fans on the network!! I hope they stop screwing around with the schedule and leave it on Thursday nights.

  10. There should be no ‘maybe’s’ about it. Bones NEEDS a fifth season (and that isn’t even at least, it should have a h*ll of a lot more too!)!!! Go Bones!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. I think we should all email Fox at askfox.com and let them know how much they have Pi$$#D off the Bones fanbase. It’s amazing that Bone’s ratings continue to improve eventhough it has been moved to new nights/times, and is pre-empted way too often. Imagine the ratings if Fox actually aired the show on a regular basis and pre-empted (or cancelled) American Idol! Let’s do it people! ASKFOX.COM Personally, I am looking forward to a season 5, season 6, season 7, and more!

  13. great to see that Bones will be on for another season. My family loves the show – we never miss it.

  14. Yes, Bones is an excellent series. I’ve been able to get the first two seasons while in Iraq and have enjoyed the interaction of the cast. Each member of the cast brings a full plate to every show. I just hope that the actors get along as well off camera as it seems they do on camera. Bones has brought a great deal of enjoyment to the day to day work I do. I’m now trying to get hold of the third season and should be home in time to watch the reruns from season 4.

  15. Bones Is one of the best shows in tv. I like me so much Booth and Brennan couple.

  16. I think 2 hours would be great. And Amercian Idol is bad

  17. I have been watching BONES since it first aired in Sept 2005. I have NEVER missed an episode. I love the show so much. I do wish that they would find a permanent spot for BONES and stop effing with the time.
    I agree that American Idol is too overrated. AI takes too much time out of other FOX programs. I understand it is a grrrreaaat money maker but all things must come to an end. If only we could make FOX understand the AI must be cut back on air time.

  18. I love Bones and would love to see another season! Please keep it going, it’s the best show on TV right now.

  19. I LOVE DAVID BOREANAZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Agreed. Bones rocks and American Idol sucks. Give it a rest already!

  21. I love bones and i watch the show online the day after. Love the chemisry with the cast.Bones is the show you must love

  22. It will be really cool to have season 5…
    Bones series r great.. never missed an episode n all of them are different..
    it has become an addiction..

  23. Look I’m not dising anything about bones, but in this resesion, of all times we need to emphasise “Buying American.” So when I see a toyota s.u.v on the latest episode of bones wich is on right now i get offended, the fox network dose not need to advertise forign car companys no matter how much they pay them, especialy in an economic sitiuation like this

  24. I LOVE BONES I NEVER MISSED AN EPISODE IT IS THE ONLY SHOW I WATCH ON THURSDAY FOX NEEDS TOO LET IT BE STAY ON A PERMANENT NIGHT NO MOVING IT AROUND ALL THE TIME BUT IF THEY DO MOVE AGAIN I WILL FOLLOW I CANNT STAND IDOL I HAVE NEVER WATCH IT IS A WASTE OF TV I HOPE BONES GOES ON FOR A LOT MOVE SEASONS I LOVE THE CAST AND EVERY TRHING ABOUT IT SO FOX DONT BE STUPID

  25. Let’s hope Bones stays on film and doesn’t go to videotape and end up looking like garbage.

  26. VOTING FOR BONES!!!
    Good Heavens, would they consider dropping the show? Hope Not

  27. Love Bones! Fox should totally do a fifth season! I’m extremely happy that I discovered Bones before they put it down like so many other great shows… I mean, they probably don’t even have anything near the real ratings, the ratings that would have been, if anyone who watch it on the internet was included… I don’t know about the rest of you, but I really need to know what happens with Booth, and of course also bones :P
    Fox can count in a vote from Denmark!!!

  28. I love Bones, its the only reason I have cable. Besides my sons cartoons. And if they counted the people who watch it online the ratings would be out the roof. GO BONES!!

  29. I LOVE BONES!!!!!!

  30. OMG!
    I didn’t even know that they were considering dropping it! how can you guys drop it. me and my bff amanda watch it every thursday and we are obsessed! seriously what you guys did in the finale had us go balistic!My mom sent me to a shrink!BITCH!lol seriously i dont need one, but i have stress issues.my other show did this.they had a coma and they woke up not remebering the other person…i cried and swore to myself i would never get caught up in a show like that again…WELL LOOKEY! please have a fifth season and fix this stupid thing or you will loose fans in alot of other fox shows and this one. And my friend might actually kill you..seriously shes got issues. PLEASE!

  31. Dear Fox Exec’s – If you read this, FOR GOD’S SAKE’S DO ANY OF YOU KNOW WHEN YOU HAVE A WINNING SHOW – AND IF SO, what in the world do you want to change it’s time slot constantly for? If it is merely to enraged viewers you’ve definitely succeeded.
    If you want to gain more why not give these hard working actors and script writers a break. I once was in the business and it never ceases to amaze
    us! Maybe the show is JUST TOO INTELLIGENT?
    please — If you want to keep it give the people who put it on a break,
    NOT TO MENTION VIEWERS….If the air times are as messed up in the next 5 shows as in April we’ll just give up on Fox altogether. Missing half of the April shows was bad enough.

  32. This show has too much talk of promiscuous sex and marriage-loathing! And there is a lack of consistency with the characters’ traits. Also, the Brennan character just gets on my nerves. She needs to get her ass kicked, but they mythically created her persona as some superwoman that can beat-up anybody. If the show has to go moral degradation to get ratings, then I rather not see it.

  33. Boneslovers!

  34. I love this show!!! The bad thing is that I have had to get a DVR to record the show because it moves around so much. . .

  35. Bones simple superb!!! It is the only show that i never miss no matter where i am or what i am doing. Not only is it entertaining but it is also very interesting in the sense the way the squints use the technology in the show. Keep on miss Brennan and sir Booth. Also please bring doctor zack addy back it was so much better with zack in the show, otherwise lets just get to work and get the new season rolling. Keep up the good work!!!!!

  36. gotta have my Bones!!! FOX be wise!! Give the audience what it wants!!

  37. Love BONES series..does anyone know the sept 09 start day for the new ones..so looking forward to watching it..thanks so much for the info

  38. yes, it is wonderful, my favorite by far. when is the first new episode scheduled to air. i wish they would do all the seasons again starting with the first and going til the last. i missed the first two seasons for sure and would love to see them

  39. Love the show but won’t watch until the Toyota is taken off! FBI should be driving American make vehicle. Doesn’t even look right. Don’t care for any show that advertises foreign vehicles. Its anti patriotic in my opinion.

  40. if every editor wrote like you believe me the world would be a better place! this was an excellent read expecting more!

  41. YAY!! I’m posting a comment!!

  44. Excellent job.

  45. I believe Obama is probably wasting his time refuting Ahmadinejad considering the fact that a bunch of American’s was lumping Ahmadinejad together under the same kind with The president—however if Barak is accepted, and who knows in such cases, I reckon that this is the one instance where The president isn’t going to fault Bush.

  59. really usefull

  60. Neat blog layout! Very easy on the eyes.. i like the colors you picked out

  61. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  62. Dreamin. I love blogging. You all express your feelings the right way, because they are your feeling, focus on your blog it is great.

  63. Love the blog here. Nice colors. I am definitely staying tuned to this one. Hope to see more.

  80. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  81. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  82. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.
