New "Bones" in February? (Spoilers)
Although 3 additional episodes of FOX's "Bones" have been filmed, the fans may not be able to see them before the end of February. The network is however expected to continue with repeats as the show moves to a new timeslot in January.
FOX had planned to move "Bones" to its Friday night "death zone" several times, but it appears it may finally happen because of the writers' strike.
The show moves to Friday at 8:00pm on January 4. According to the most recent press release, however, the first all-new episode "The Baby in the Bough" is scheduled for February 22.
That same night, FOX will premiere the first of 7 episodes of its midseason drama "New Amsterdam" in the 9:00pm timeslot.
The series tells the story of a brilliant and enigmatic New York homicide detective, John Amsterdam (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), who has a profound secret: He is immortal, and will not age until he meets his one true love.
The show was originally supposed to premiere in the fall, but FOX was allegedly not very happy with early episodes.
Finally, here are stills and spoilers from the "Baby in the Bough" episode: Booth and Brennan investigate the scene where a car was run off the road and the victim's body deliberately burned beyond recognition.
When the team hears muffled whimpering during the site investigation, they find the victim's baby miraculously perched in a tree above the scene of the crash.
The team designates Brennan as the infant's caretaker, but when the baby swallows a key piece of evidence, they question her nurturing skills.
The team soon identifies the victim as a laborer who worked in a tire-recycling factory in a small, impoverished town in Virginia, and Brennan and Booth venture out to investigate who might have wanted her dead.
Their suspicions range from her deadbeat husband to the impecunious habitants of her town. Meanwhile, the team is fascinated by the presence of a baby in the lab and its affinity for Brennan.
