bones david boreanaz not leaving emily deschanel booth brennan fox David Boreanaz says he will not leave 'Bones' on Twitter

Sorry about the rumors, folks. David Boreanaz is not about to leave his long-running hit, “Bones,” at the end of the current Season 9. This is a good thing. “Bones” just wouldn’t be the same without Booth.

Possibly because of reports that indicated the actor wanted off his FOX procedural after 9 seasons, Boreanaz’s fans took to Twitter to ask if he was going. The response was a pretty clear “No.” A Twitter user named Madison McInnes asked the question:

“will you be returning for season 10 of #Bones ?”

Boreanaz’s response:

“yes, if we get picked up”

This indicates that, unless ratings for “Bones” take a major nosedive over the next few months, both Boreanaz and “Bones” will go on for at least another season (assuming network politics and other stars align, of course).

With the central couple of Booth and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) only just engaged, “Bones” could very well need more time to get to an adequate ending point. Rumors that Boreanaz wanted out have been around for more than a year, but none have been confirmed thus far. These most recent stories may just be leftovers from earlier tales.

When it comes to Hollywood, all you can really trust are signed contracts and season pick-ups.

“Bones” airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on FOX.
