As the final episodes of Bones begin, the cast and crew are starting to feel nostalgic about their 12-season run on the FOX procedural drama. Creator Hart Hanson penned a heartfelt goodbye letter to Bones in The Hollywood Reporter, the cast shared their favorite episodes of all time and executive producer Michael Peterson isn’t willing to say goodbye to the series just yet. Find out all the thoughts shared by the cast and crew of Bones on the end of the series below.
In the wake of the final day of shooting for Bones, creator Hart Hanson wrote in to The Hollywood Reporter and shared his thoughts on the final days of shooting and the show as a whole. Read part of the letter below:
“On Dec. 9, Bones shot its last scenes because it had come to the end of its record-setting run. (It’s the longest-running scripted hour in Fox history!)” he wrote. “For 12 seasons, Stage 6 on the Fox lot was home to the Jeffersonian Institute Forensics Laboratory in Washington, D.C., and series-finale director David Boreanaz was tasked with filming the last sequence involving the main characters who had inhabited that fictional but oh-so-real setting for more than a decade.”
You can read the rest of his farwell letter in the link to The Hollywood Reporter shared above.
While Hanson might be getting some closure on Bones, EP Michael Peterson is having a little more trouble saying goodbye to the beloved series. In an interview with TVLine, Peterson said, “I absolutely am not considering this the end. I am in full-on denial. I’ve been working on the show for eight-and-a-half years. It is my family. I adore it here. I don’t want to leave. And the idea of having some kind of reunion in a year or two … I would not rule it out.”
The cast is also feeling nostalgic about the show. David Boreanaz, Emily Deschanel and the rest of the Bones team shared their favorite episodes from the series’ entire run.
