BONES is back for its 11th season, and when things pick up, it’s months after Booth and Brennan left their jobs to start over.

Unfortunately, things aren’t super great — Booth goes missing, and Kim Raver’s Agent Miller is recruited to help find him.

Check out some photos from the season premiere, “The Loyalty in the Lie”…

BONES has been off the air for months, and the Fox drama finally is back this Thursday with the first of 12 new episodes.

To celebrate the occasion, I spoke with many of the BONES stars to see what they could share about what’s coming up in the second half of season 10…

BONES has been off the air since its 200th episode aired in December, and there are still a few more weeks until the show returns.

To help fans pass the time, the cast (BONES stars Emily Deschanel, TJ Thyne, Tamara Taylor, and Pej Vahdat) as well as creator Hart Hanson weighed in on which episodes they’d like you to rewatch during the hiatus…

Red carpets can be a bit of a madhouse as talent, reporters, and publicists/managers, etc. squeeze into a relatively confined space. (Not a complaint — it’s actually often fun — but things can be a bit crazy.)

Which brings us to BONES’ 200th episode celebration.

There was nothing, really, abnormal about the carpet, but there were a lot of people there, and it was fairly easy for people to approach you without you noticing. And while I was interviewing Eugene Byrd (Clark) and Michael Grant Terry (Wendell), their co-star, Pej Vahdat (Arastoo), realized this was a good opportunity for him to ask them a few of his burning questions, and he snuck up on us and hilariously crashed the interview. (Which is probably fair payback for Byrd video-bombing Terry and Vahdat on the set of BONES.)

Check out the adorable video…

BONES’ 200th episode is airing this Thursday, and as Fox Television Group Chairman and CEO Gary Newman pointed out during an on-set celebration, it’s one of only a few Fox shows to reach that incredible milestone.

To celebrate how far Team BONES has come, I asked the cast and producers for their first memories of working on the series. Check out what BONES creator Hart Hanson, executive producer Stephen Nathan, as well as stars David Boreanaz (Booth), Emily Deschanel (Brennan), Michaela Conlin (Angela), TJ Thyne (Hodgins), Tamara Taylor (Cam), John Boyd (Aubrey), Carla Gallo (Daisy), Eugene Byrd (Clark), Michael Grant Terry (Wendell), Pej Vahdat (Arastoo), Laura Spencer (Jessica), Ignacio Serricchio (Fuentes), and Cyndi Lauper (Avalon) had to share…

Comments Off on The BONES Cast and Producers Tease Episode 200

BONES is telling a different kind of story for its 200th episode — sure, a body is discovered, but the episode is set in Hollywood in the 1950s, and Brennan is a cop, while Booth is a jewel thief.

And since the hour is bringing back a lot of familiar faces, I asked BONES executive producers Stephen Nathan and Jonathan Collier, as well as stars David Boreanaz (Booth), Emily Deschanel (Brennan), Michaela Conlin (Angela), TJ Thyne (Hodgins), Tamara Taylor (Cam), John Boyd (Aubrey), Carla Gallo (Daisy), Eugene Byrd (Clark), Michael Grant Terry (Wendell), Pej Vahdat (Arastoo), Laura Spencer (Jessica), and Ignacio Serricchio (Fuentes) for their best teases about the hour…

BONES: Shohreh Aghdashloo on Her Connection to Mrs. Vaziri, Working with Pej Vahdat and Tamara Taylor, and More

BONES viewers have been getting to know squintern Arastoo since his season 4 introduction, but in light of his serious relationship with Cam, his parents will finally be introduced in Monday’s brand new episode, “The Cold in the Case.” And in the tradition of BONES characters being given incredible actors/performers to portray their parents (Ryan O’Neal, Billy Gibbons, and Joanna Cassidy), the series recruited Emmy-winner/Academy Award-nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo to play Arastoo’s mother.

“They approached me [for the role],” Aghdashloo (Deena Vaziri) shared of getting involved with the Fox series. “My agents called me and told me I had an offer, and I went, ‘I like that show, let me read it’ — I’m very particular about my work, so I have to read it before [accepting things] — and I’m reading it and the first thing I see is [her name is] Mrs. Vaziri?…I was so overwhelmed with the name of my character, because the character’s [last name] is my real family name. My parents didn’t allow me to become an actor, so I got married first, and I used my first husband’s family name to become an actor.”

“I get to the set, and I told the director [Milan Cheylov], whom every actor would give a leg and an arm to work with — I enjoyed working with him and everybody so much — and I said, ‘Milan! Did you know my real family name is Vaziri?'” she continued. “And he went, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me.’ And I said, ‘Honest to God. My [last name I was born with] is Vaziri, but I’ve used Aghdashloo professionally.’ So the character felt familiar.”

And while Arastoo is wary of what his mother’s intentions might be in wanting to meet Cam, Aghdashloo could relate to the protectiveness she got to display as Deena.

BONES: Tamara Taylor Previews ‘The Cold in the Case’

BONES’ Cam and Arastoo have been in a relationship for about a year and a half, but in Monday’s brand new episode, “The Cold in the Case,” they face a common speed bump couples face: stress about meeting the parents.

“Arastoo springs on her a surprise visit from his parents at the very last minute,” Tamara Taylor (Cam) previewed. “He’s not looking forward to it, based on his own past with his parents who have been kind of hard [on him], and maybe a little rough on the women who have been in his life. So he tees up this wonderful dinner [filled with stress] we’re going to go on, and then it all unfolds. I think he’s wonderfully chivalrous, but maybe a little bit misguided.”

The fallout from the dinner for the duo has an unintended impact — Cam, who has always attempted to keep personal matters out of the workplace, won’t be able to hide some of the tension she’s facing in her relationship with Arastoo.

The BONES squinterns have been a part of the series since season 4, but for the first time (in a non-dream setting), Monday’s episode, “The Patriot in Purgatory,” brings all the male squinterns together to tackle a case.

After BONES was honored by LA City Council, I spoke with Michael Grant Terry (Wendell), Eugene Byrd (Clark), and Pej Vahdat (Arastoo) about getting to work together, their favorite part of the episode, and more…
