That could be the biggest question out there and you have to really think hard about this one. The person who is going to marry us is close to one of the cast members."Mystery solved!
As for what else lies ahead for season nine, David teases: "Cyndi Lauper is going to come and sing at the wedding. We did a great undercover episode we're really excited about.
Obviously we knew going into this last season that these were our last twelve episodes, our last season. So by the end [of the night shoot], I wanted to go home. And then there are you, and it was goodbye, and we had to go to the next set up. David, was there any particular touch you put into the finale because you were the one directing it? And then it was like, you can't sit down and be comfortable.
2017 FOX WINTER TCA: L-R: Cast members David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel during the BONES panel at the 2017 FOX WINTER TCA at the Langham Hotel, Wednesday, Jan. CR: Frank Micelotta/FOX/Picture Group' David Boreanaz (Booth) and Emily Deschanel (Brennan) have been a match made in TV heaven. Deschanel: He was always creeped out by the mask things. There is a cadence and a rhythm that was always maintained with the two of us, finding that relationship in whatever moment we were working on. And to be able to play that character through all of those changes…even doing a series, which is obviously longer than a film where you have an hour and a half or two hours to explore a character. Sometimes it was really frustrating because we weren't appreciated by the network. But we never expected to go this long, but it happened. It's a testimony to everyone who came on the show—guest stars, people who were on the crew for a week or whatever—they all touched their energy into the show and made it move forward.
Over a dozen seasons, the duo has portrayed Booth and Brennan as they transitioned from a spark-filled working relationship to something far more complicated to a family unit (with an eventual marriage). Deschanel: I took something and I gave it to David as a joke. It's really the hard work that took us on weekends away from our families to go back and give the writers or [series creator] Hart [Hanson] notes. But I also now realize they probably knew how strong we were and knew they could bounce us around to different times and we'd survive. Sometimes it goes so long you think it will never end, and then it does end at a certain point. The other day, I saw the two stages we worked in, and they have the plaques. From Episode 1 to Episode 6, 2 to 27, whatever it is, they all had impact.
On a personal level, what will you take from this working relationship going forward? I feel proud that we did so many episodes, that we were on for so long; it's quite an accomplishment.
Back in 2005, when a cocky FBI agent first joined forces with a bookish forensic anthropologist to solve crimes, David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel never could have envisioned their mismatched characters sharing not only a home, but also a baby, in the year 2012. It's not fair for us to guess exactly what happened after that. But we're not having any bedroom scenes right now, thank God.
ET's Leanna Aguilera caught up with the co-stars at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour in Pasadena, California, on Wednesday, where they opened up about what they're going to miss the most about filming their popular crime drama."For me, it's always been about the camaraderie and the crew and being able to work with [my] beautiful co-star," Boreanaz said.
"She's given me so much love and support that it made it easy from day one." WATCH: 'Bones' Stars and Creator Address 'Possible' Revival Plans According to Boreanaz, who plays FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth on Bones, his positive and productive working relationship with Deschanel helped make the show the hit it became."We kind of really opened our hearts to each other and we really trusted each other, which gave us some really great material to work with," he shared.
But here both actors are, sitting for their first interview in Booth and Brennan's cozy new living-room set — complete with crib and stuffed animals strewn about the floor. Boreanaz: Actually, for our first episode in the house, I thought it looked too perfect. TV Guide Magazine: Your exec producer Hart Hanson tells us he does want to show a sex scene next season, after the infant's older. I just had a baby [in real life], who comes with me to work every day. Boreanaz: They won't be attacking each other ferociously over steaks they're grilling outside. Boreanaz: We were going to take you there, but you're not allowed.
The series returned April 2 for the first of seven new episodes, with Temperance "Bones" Brennan and Seeley Booth already living together in anticipation of the birth of their baby daughter. TV Guide Magazine: Love what you've done with your home, by the way. I wanted some appliances not to work, which would be more like Booth and Brennan, so we disorganized it a bit. Deschanel: Actually, David has a cold now and it was written in a scene that he gives me a kiss, and I was like, "He is ] TV Guide Magazine: Have they at least built you a bedroom?
You could follow the trail of tears to where I was.
Boreanaz: It's such a give and take between the two of us. Deschanel: It’s rare as an actor to work on something for so long and have a character evolve so much. I feel like our fans were always so loyal and they always found us wherever we were, no matter how many times they bounced us around. It's a big thing to be immortalized on a plaque outside of a stage.
"From there on it just kind of developed and developed into this small show and here we are.
