BONES: Stephen Nathan, Jonathan Collier, and Michaela Conlin Tease Booth and Brennan’s Wedding
September 10, 2013 by Marisa Roffman
Originally, the plan was to keep the “when” of BONES’ Booth/Brennan wedding on the down low, but things change: the producers are now freely admitting the long-awaited marriage will go down in October. Yes, we’re just weeks away from seeing Booth and Brennan become man and wife!
But just because the duo are going to be hitched ASAP, that doesn’t mean things are going to be absolutely smooth on the road to get them there.
“It’s a BONES wedding,” BONES executive producer Stephen Nathan teased. “We wanted to give the people who have been so loyal to us for so many years the wedding that they would want. And as much as we wanted to do that, it’s never that simple on BONES. So while our intention was pure, the outcome is far different than we imagined. But hopefully, no less magical.”
Which means the show is doing all they can behind the scenes to make sure things live up to expectations.
“It’s an exciting, thrilling episode,” executive producer Jonathan Collier shared. “I have to say, one of our best writers ever wrote it — Karine Rosenthal. She came back especially to do this…she’s one of the best writers I’ve ever worked with, and it was the perfect, emotional episode for her to come back and do.”
And to make Booth and Brennan’s special day extra delightful, a bunch of familiar faces will be popping up on-screen as well.
“We essentially have everyone who has ever been in BONES back,” Nathan laughed. “We have Max, we have Hank, we have [Booth's] mom, we have as many squints as we could fit in a phone booth.”
“We basically spent the budget for the entire year,” Collider joked. But in all seriousness, he noted, “It means as much to us as it does to the fans. It’s a big emotional moment.”
Unfortunately, some of those emotions might not be great — the tension between Booth and Angela (who has her own important role in the big day) won’t be completely resolved by the time the wedding occurs.
“At the wedding [things are said],” Michaela Conlin (Angela) previewed. “They’re taking some digs — both of them.”
BONES’ ninth season kicks off Monday, September 16th at 8 PM on Fox.
