'Bones' Season 12: Does Hart Hanson Have An Ending In Mind? [VIDEO]
The creator of Fox's Bones is hoping his idea for the show's ending will be used next season.
Hart Hanson, who created Bones, has something in mind for the upcoming 12th and final season of the Fox procedural. The producer spoke about this in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, and why he hopes the current showrunners and stars David Boreanaz (who plays Booth) and Emily Deschanel (Brennan) agree to his plan.
"I have had an ending in mind, because we were such a precarious show, we weren't supposed to make it to our first Christmas," Hanson said. "I had this idea how to end the show. As it went on, that idea changed to, 'Oh we'll end it on their marriage - that will be the end of the series, them getting married.' We've passed that, so now it's back to, 'I have an idea, but I will go in and see if that idea meshes with the guys who have been running the show for the past two years, not to mention David [Boreanaz] and Emily [Deschanel].' We'll see."
Hanson reportedly hopes to write the series finale alongside longtime executive producer Stephen Nathan.
There are only three episodes left of the current 11th season of Bones, and then it's the countdown to the show's series finale. The 12th season will only feature 12 episodes and while it was originally supposed to premiere this fall on Fox, the network has since pushed it to early 2017.
In the meantime, the 20th episode of the 11th season will air this Thursday and then the show takes a break for a few weeks. It will return on July 14 for the penultimate episode and then July 21 for the season 11 finale.
Bones airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
