Bones creator Hart Hanson recently talked about the changes that the fans can expect to see when the show returns in April. And there’s more to come than just a baby!

Hanson did make it clear that Brennan will be greatly affected by the arrival of her daughter. When they work on a case involving a child victim Brennan will experience a sudden urge to be near her daughter that she can’t explain. Hanson explains that she goes through shock realizing that one person could be so important to her. However, he also made it clear that the show is still about murders and won’t change in that respect. There are other changes heading towards the fans this spring!

TV Line writes:

BONUS TREATS | There’s still no airdate for the four additional Season 7 “bonus” episodes that Fox ordered. “They’re more stylized than we normally would do,” said Nathan of the standalone installments. “We were able to tackle stories that we might not normally have tackled.”

FUTURE PLANS | If the show gets renewed for an eighth season, expect to see some storylines that got put on the backburner because of this year’s shortened episode count. “We weren’t able to give some of the other characters that we love – Hodgins and Cam – more extensive arcs,” revealed Nathan. “We will be doing that if we get picked up.” Also look for “more Booth family stuff,” added Hanson.

A TERRIFYING END | “Pelant’s going to scare the crap out of people in the season finale,” teased Hanson, while Nathan warned that the baddie will “turn the series on its head for a little bit… He has much more power than any of our serial bad guys have had in the past.”
