Summary and storyline

Bones is a critically acclaimed, long-running American police procedural, mystery, romance and crime drama television series that is currently airing on the FOX channel in the United States. The crime drama was created by Hart Hanson who also serves as executive producer alongside Barry Josephson, Stephen Nathan, Ian Toynton, Carla Kettner and Jonathan Collier. The storyline of Bones was inspired by the life and memoirs of forensic anthropologist and writer Kathy Reichs. Season 1 of Bones debuted on the FOX channel on September 13, 2005.

The storyline of the crime drama revolves around an FBI agent Seeley Booth and a forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan, who work together and also happen to be a couple.

Critical response and renewal hopes

Season 11 of Bones premiered on the FOX channel in the US on Thursday, October 1, 2015 at 8pm ET/PT. The ratings of the show keep declining each season. When season 10 began there were rumors that it would be the show’s last. Even though Bones averaged only 5.37 million viewers during its tenth season (which was an almost 19% drop when compared season to season), FOX still decided to renew. In the current, 11th season, after just four episodes, the series is averaging 6 million viewers, which in an impressive 11% growth. Who knows, maybe if the ratings manage to keep up, the network will greenlight Bones for another run.

I feel sad that Bones was even CONSIDERED for cancellation. I have looked forward to each season and furthermore each episode. I feel like the cast has become part of my TV family - that is how much I look forward to watching the show each week and that is saying a lot after 11 seasons. Please reconsider dropping this well done show.
