Fox has confirmed that Bones has been renewed for an eighth season, something that had been expected since four additional episodes were ordered late last year that were not to be part of the current season.

Bones is now airing its seventh season - one that was shortened to 13 episodes due to star Emily Deschanel's pregnancy. Six of those have aired so far, with its last new episode back in January. New episodes are set to resume this coming Monday, April 2 and will air for seven straight weeks to close out the season.

A timetable for the show's eighth season return has not been announced as of yet.
