It’s official: Fox has picked up a 10th season of long-running drama Bones.
“Over the course of nine seasons, Bones has grown from a hit crime procedural into a beloved pillar of our lineup that resonates with fans in a way that only the best of shows can,” said Kevin Reilly, chairman of entertainment, Fox. “Our viewers have embraced Emily, David and the entire cast and characters of Bones as their very own, and I think they are going to love what Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan have planned for Season 10!”
Earlier this month Reilly told reporters that a 10th season of Bones would likely be the show’s last, but there was no mention of that in the Fox press release and it’s always risky to count out a reliable long-running drama on a network with some holes in its prime-time schedule.
Bones will move to Mondays beginning March 10. Fox also announced restaurant makeover series Kitchen Nightmares returns for a sixth season on Friday, Feb. 28.
