@MaskedScheduler’s tweet stated: “For those of you asking, BONES will return in very early April with seven originals in a row. But don’t tell anyone. Just between us.”
That does however leave one question unanswered: what about the other four episodes? True Bones fans will recall that the show’s seventh season was only going to run thirteen episodes due to Emily Deschanel’s pregnancy, however, back in September the network ordered an additional four episodes; bringing the total number ordered to seventeen. It is believed that those four episodes will air in the summer or be held over for the show’s (possible) eighth season.
