Bones is an American drama television series that premiered on the Fox Network on September 13, 2005. The show is a forensics and police procedural in which each episode focuses on an FBI case file concerning the mystery behind human remains brought by FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth to the forensic anthropology team of Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan. Emily Deschanel stars in the title role, opposite David Boreanaz as Agent Booth. The rest of the cast includes Michaela Conlin, T.J. Thyne, Tamara Taylor, John Francis Daley. Previous cast members include Eric Millegan and Jonathan Adams.
The series, created by Hart Hanson, is very loosely based on the works of real-life forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs, who is herself a producer on the show. Its title character, Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan is named after the protagonist of Reichs' crime novel series. Bones is a joint production by Josephson Entertainment, Far Field Productions and 20th Century Fox Television.
Eight seasons of Bones have been aired on Fox so far. Season 9 will premiere in September 2013. Reruns of previous seasons of Bones began airing on TNT on January 29, 2008. WGN America and MyNetworkTV are both syndicating Bones, which began in the Fall of 2009.
