david boreanaz emily deschanel Interview With Bones Stars David Boreanaz & Emily Deschanel

What’s an interview with Bones creator Hart Hanson if you don’t have an interview with the shows stars, David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel, to accompany it. Luckily, both were in attendance at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con (Deschanel was a surprise guest as Boreanaz was the only one confirmed attending).

With season 6 of Bones less than two months away, fans want to know anything and everything about what they can expect to see when the series returns. In the season 5 finale, the entire Jeffersonian crew broke up to do their own thing (minus Cam, she’s always in the lab), but now with 6 months away from each other, what will bring the team back together?

In the interview, neither Boreanaz nor Deschanel will fess up to what exactly that is (rabid Bones fans already the answer), but they did talk about what we can expect to see in the show’s sixth season, plus word on Deschanel directing, Boreanaz’s Afghanistan scenes, Booth’s new love interest and the fan pressure of seeing Booth and Brennan together.

You can read the highlights below (make sure to check out the complete video of the interview for even more tid-bits):

On what’s in store for Bones season 6:

David Boreanaz: We’ve been away for a while. The characters have kind of split and gone off.

Emily Deschanel: We left at the end of last season – season 5. I went to Maluiku, the Maluiku Island and Booth went to Afghanistan.

David: Yeah, so it’s interesting to see how their distance…  When they do come back, obviously they were changed when they left and now when they come back – after being away for so long – it’s interesting to see how they mold back to each other’s personalities, what they’ve picked up in the last six months, how they’ve adapted to coming back to [Washington D.C.], what [Brennan] has lost, what [Booth] lost – what’s not there.

But, I think in essence, what the show is so purely about the two of them always being together, even if they’re so far apart, and it allows the characters to stretch out and breath a bit and then come back to this arena and see where they are.

Emily: …Maybe appreciate each other a little more since there’s time apart.

On Booth’s new love interest:

David: There’s somebody that’s coming in. She’s a war correspondent journalist who [Booth] met while over there in Afghanistan and we’ll see how that builds as far as what it does to [Booth and Brennan’s] relationship.

I can honestly say that I don’t think it’s going to do much to the relationship. It’ll challenge it. It may make [Brennan] a little jealous.

Emily: It’s kind of scary, to [Brennan]. [Laughs] This lady is coming in.

David: It’s threatening, but also I think it’s refreshing to see how Booth put himself out there at the end of season 5 and say, “Here. Here’s everything” and [Brennan] said, “Nah, I can’t do that right now.” So, [Booth] said, “Ok, well, I have too many choices I have to look over.”

In doing so, he’s made a few choices and then comes back with that and see how she reacts.

Emily: Meanwhile, [Brennan has] been on her own, thinking about things, looking for ancient remains… and I think the time apart has given [her] some time to reflect and to consider whether [she] might have made a mistake when she said “no” to getting together when he kind of put his heart out there, but now he’s got this girl. So, it causes a little conflict.

On whether they feel pressure from the fans to get Booth and Brennan together?

Emily: That’s the number one question we’ve been asked.

David: They always ask that question.

Emily: I don’t feel it’s pressure, that just means that people care about the show and like the characters and think that they have a chemistry together and I think that means we’re doing a good job. So, no, I don’t find that pressure.

Fortunately, That’s not my job – decided whether they get together and all that. So, I don’t feel the pressure. I like that feedback and I like hearing that and if people feel that way, it’s wonderful.

On what it’s like filming the Afghanistan scenes:

David: We haven’t done it yet. We shoot that this week. So, it should be hot. [Emily] was out there doing prep because she’s directing the episode.

Emily: I’ve been to Afghanistan and he hasn’t, basically… L.A. is “Afghanistan” [laughs]

It’s very hot! He’s going to have to be dressed… I just don’t envy you.

David: [laughs] It’s ok, I’d rather be in that outfit than wear those gloves and say all that scientific jargon.

In it, Emily (jokingly) talks about how Brennan hangs out naked in Maluku (“that’s how she rolls”), what they’ve been up to during their vacation and how they feel about Hart Hanson saying that he has the ending of Bones written.

  1. Thanks Anthony

    That was really cool. Bones is one show my wife and I watch regularly. In fact she got me into it, so she was really stoked when she saw the video clip.

  2. She looks a lot more like her sister in real life than she does on the show.

  3. HE WILL ALWAYS BE ANGEL!!!

  4. I cried on seeing the last episode of Bones Season 5 tonite at 10 pm IST on Star World India. I just could not believe the bones team had disintegrated.

    I then switched on my computer and started searching the web hoping to find news about any more forthcoming seasons of Bones.

    You cannot imagine how relieved I am to read this interview.

    I have been abandonning my husband and 1 and half year old son for an hour everyday in order to watch Bones.

    I am waiting eagerly for Season 6 and I do hope Dr. Brennan and Agent Booth get back to each other. They are so incomplete without each other.

  5. As a scottish guy i can safely say that this is the best thing on british tv in my opinion and is the best american series i have seen since cheers.In many ways they are similar in that the relationship between sam and diane was the centre of the series although the other characters like cliff and norm became vital to the show as have cam angela and the likes to bones.bones is superbly written with great acting by all the cast and some great comedy moments.hart hanson must love doing it as there are now so many possibilties to the series.Will hodgkiss fall for booths girlfriend.Is booth only with her because of her being saved by him.hanson drops wee hints in the series and one was that angela still thinks booth is hot so heres how i see the series panning out.Angela,having seemingly lost her love to booths girlfriend admits her feelings for booth.Brennan realises booth is the love of her life and finally admits it and booth left with this quandry ends up with the delightful cam.not the ending most fans want but that would be fun.Btw isnt cam the hottest thing on the show and what a star tamara taylor is.Will miss this show greatly when it finishes but watch old epiosdes all the time as they are great tv and better than everything else out there.like cheers bones has been part of my life i have greatly enjoyed.with david having his little issues outside bones i suggest he and emily get together off set as their body language suggests they are so comfortable in each others company that they would make a great couple and as any body language expert will tell you they are hot together and get on so well they look like a married couple anyway.
