Last time we saw "Bones," the Jeffersonian crew parted ways at an airport, with Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) going off to opposite ends of the earth to pursue their respective loves of do-goodery and corpse probing.
And they never saw each other again.
Um, clearly not. Everyone on "Bones" will probably reunite in the first five minutes of the season 6 premiere, but how much time has passed and what brings them back together are the variables at play. Until now. SPOILERS AHEAD.
EW chatted with "Bones" executive producer Stephen Nathan, dispelling rumors that the new season will pick up one year after the events of the last. No, the one-year jump is a desperate move. "Bones" is content with only seven months.
As for the circumstances of the reunion, apparently it's to save their buddy Cam (Tamara Taylor). Unsurprisingly, her job performance falls behind without a crack team at her disposal, and when one super-stumper of a case puts her position at the Jeffersonian in the balance, Booth and Brennan come to her rescue.
And we're guessing they're not just bringing back novelty souvenirs in their baggage -- right? (We mean emotions.)
