The hit drama series Bones returns to Fox with new episodes, following highly skilled forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz). While the Jeffersonian team investigates the death of a woman whose body was found mutilated and discarded in a city garbage can, Booth invites Sweets (John Francis Daley) to stay with Brennan, so that Sweets can search for a new apartment.

During this recent interview to promote the new season, executive producers Hart Hanson (also the show’s creator) and Stephen Nathan talked about how things will continue to develop between Booth and Brennan, what it will be like to have Sweets move in with them, that the Pelant storyline will return in January, how they’re hoping to add another intern to the show, what’s to come with the baby, how they’re already shaping the end of the season, and whether they’ve tried to get any former Buffy, Angel or Freaks and Geeks co-stars on the show...

... Q: What can you say to tease the ballroom dancing episode?

NATHAN: "It’s terrific! We have Mary Murphy and Tyce Diorio in it. It’s just a lot of fun. Our undercover episodes are gifts to the hardcore fans, where we all get goofy. It’s like doing shots, every time somebody says something. That’s what our undercover episodes are. We just have a good time, David and Emily love doing them. and this one’s no exception. It’s a murder at a ballroom dancing competition, and we find out in this that Booth actually taught ballroom dance when he was in college to make money."

HANSON: "Well, that’s what he thinks he was doing."

NATHAN: "Yes, Sweets points out that he was probably just a gigolo for old women. From Brennan’s standpoint, because of her phenomenal knowledge of kinesiology and anatomy, she believes that, as long as she can look at someone dance, she can replicate that exactly. I can just tell you that’s not true."

HANSON: I’ll tell you something weird about that episode. I watched David Boreanaz learn how to rumba in five minutes. He’s gifted. He’s a physically gifted guy..."

Bones airs Monday at 8/7C on FOX.
