Hart Hanson has said that is he "confident" Bones
will be picked up for an eighth season.
The series creator opened up about the show's prospects at Fox's TCA panel, insisting that Bones
will return for the 2012-2013 television season, Deadline
"Oh, hell yes!" Hanson said when asked if the show would be renewed.
"Putting Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel
) together and having a child as far as we're concerned reinvigorated the series," he continued.
"There are still very good stories to be told in the Bones
universe, stories that our characters generate," Hanson said. "So that's a long way of saying 'Yes'. I'd like it to come back."
Deschanel gave birth
to a baby boy named Henry in September. Her pregnancy was written into the show's storyline
will return with new episodes on January 12.
