Fox has ordered up four additional episodes of Bones, but they will not be a part of this coming season. That's because the season - its seventh - was already scaled down to 13 episodes due to star Emily Deschanel's pregnancy.
What is possible at point is that the four extra episodes will be shown during next summer or possibly as part of an eighth season of the show. These new installments are said to have standalone plots, as the aforementioned seventh season has already been mapped out.
Season 7 of Bones kicks off Thursday, November 3 and will run for six episodes before taking a break until next spring.
