Sorry Bones fans. The end could be coming for the long-running FOX series!
And it's all because David Boreanaz doesn't want to do it anymore! Sources close to the show say he plans on quitting at the end of this season!
After nine years on the air, David is telling friends that this one will be his last, no matter how much money the network offers him to come back for Season 10!
David wants to explore other projects at this point in his career and feels that his time on the show has come to an end. He hinted that he was handing in his FBI badge last year too, when he tweeted out:
"I’m a free agent after this season [Season8]. So the Bones farewell tour is in full-swing. You must always keep your options open and ready for new challenges. The fear is the unknown and that’s exciting."
Producers were able to convince him to come back for one more season, but it sounds like his mind is made up for good this time around.
His co-star, Emily Deschanel who plays "Bones" herself, however IS committed to keeping the crime comedy-drama alive. But even if she's onboard, FOX might soon jump ship!
Insiders are doubtful that executives would recast a new lead, despite the show's popularity and money-making ability. Finding the right face to take David's spot might be a mystery they just don't want to solve!
Fans will still be able to enjoy the wedding of Bones and Booth later this month!
Hey, nine seasons is a helluva run! And all good things must come to an end sometime!
