Sea­son 11 Mon­days (from 25 July) FOX (*125) 19:20

When it comes to iden­ti­fy­ing a vic­tim in cop show Bones (2005- cur­rent), things can some­times get tricky, es­pe­cially when the body’s state of decay has left them with­out a face! And Bones doesn’t shy away from show­ing all the gory de­tails: fans see ev­ery­thing from a vic­tim’s in­sides pop­ping out, to bloody flesh and skin rot­ting off. But for foren­sic an­thro­pol­o­gist Dr Bren­nan aka Bones (Emily Deschanel) and her FBI part­ner and hus­band Agent Booth (David Bore­anaz), be­ing up close and per­sonal with a corpse is noth­ing new and they pride them­selves on find­ing the killer re­spon­si­ble. In sea­son 10 (2015), things ended on a sad note with Bones and Booth de­cid­ing to move on from their jobs at the Jef­fer­so­nian In­sti­tute and the FBI, leav­ing view­ers to won­der what would hap­pen next. “In our 11th sea­son, we have not lost any mo­men­tum,” Emily re­veals. And she’s not kid­ding – in episode 1, a body is iden­ti­fied as Booth… but there’s some­thing fishy about it! Bones (left) and Booth are back for more ac­tion-packed crimes this sea­son.

NOT TO BE MISSED

The show, which is end­ing af­ter 2017’s sea­son 12, al­ways de­liv­ers in­ter­est­ing cases and here are some of the sto­ry­lines to keep an eye out for:

Wheeled out In episode 10 (26 Septem­ber), en­to­mol­o­gist Hod­gins (TJ Thyne) is in­jured at a crime scene when a bomb stuffed in the corpse of a cop det­o­nates. Hod­gins ends up in the hospi­tal and by episode 11 (3 Oc­to­ber) he’s con­fined to a wheel­chair. Se­rial killer In episode 12 (10 Oc­to­ber), Bones and Co will be hunt­ing a se­rial killer who turns his vic­tims into his per­sonal mar­i­onettes. Mu­si­cal guest stars Fa­mous acap­pella band Pen­ta­tonix drop by in episode 16 (17 Oc­to­ber) when a col­lege stu­dent who per­forms in an acap­pella band is found dead in a cam­pus lab. Find­ing love again Dr Saroyan (Ta­mara Tay­lor) and in­tern Aras­too (Pej Vah­dat) get back to­gether in episode 18 (31 Oc­to­ber) and de­cide to take the plunge and get mar­ried.
