Bones:
Interview! The FOX series returns with new episodes beginning on Thursday March 26 at 8:00 PM. Soaps.com sat in on a conference call with show star Emily Deschanel (Bones) and Executive Producer Stephen Nathan. When asked what upcoming storyline has been their favorite to work on Nathan spoke for both of them. “You know it’s always hard for me to pick favorites, but I think the storyline that is kind of the most emotionally rich for us is Booth’s relapse into gambling and how it affects Brennan, the family and it just has the ripples go out from that and cause a lot of changes not only for Brennan and Booth, but for the other characters as well. But there are so many really, there’s great stuff between Cam and Arastoo, Arastoo going off to Iran and their relationship being in jeopardy and his life being in jeopardy. It’s hard to pick favorites. And, of course, there’s always all of the revolting bodies that delight us.” Watch the promo below for what’s ahead tonight.
