‘Bones’ Showrunner Confident of Renewal but Concerned About Star’s Pregnancy

Apr 19, 2011  •  Post A Comment

"Bones" showrunner Hart Hanson said he’s confident the Fox show will return for a seventh season, although he said the program may end up being impacted by co-star Emily Deschanel’s pregnancy, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed blog.

Fox and 20th TV are in negotiations over the show’s license fee, the story notes, but Hanson said the two sides are "talking like crazy" and he believes a renewal will come before May 15.

As for Deschanel’s pregnancy, Hanson said, "Do we do shows without Emily, do we simply shut down when Emily is not available and just do 16 or 18 episodes or do we do a few episodes without her.” He noted that the network will "weigh in heavily" on how the co-star’s pregnancy affects the season, the story adds.

  1. You do shows without her. She’s kind of annoying anyway, but it would be nice to experiment w/a visiting forensics expert and see if that leads to a spin off show.
