Interview! Soaps.com sat in on a conference call with executive producers Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan. When asked if viewers can expect more out of the ordinary episodes this season Hanson shared, "I'll tell you something. We front loaded the season with, I’m going to call them obligatory episodes, things that we've set up that we have to do. The weirder episodes or out of the box episodes… are going to happen in the back end of the season. I don't even mean the back end. Let's say after Christmas." Nathan added, "We do have some planned that are odd and unique and aren't necessarily just a regular 'Bones'. We want to do it more and more the older we get the older the show gets."
