On March 28, after 12 seasons, Bones will end on Fox. The David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel-led show, which was the longest-running crime drama in Fox's history, will end on Tuesday with a farewell episode directed by Boreanaz, and I don't blame you if you need to take a moment to pull yourself together. It's always depressing when we reach the end of an era.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Deschanel discussed the difficulty of filming a series finale, and teased what fans should expect from the show's final hour. “It’s dramatic, it’s exciting, it’s heartfelt,” she said. “It goes to the core of the characters and who they are, and I think it wraps up a lot of different story lines. I think it did a great job, and I was satisfied with it.”
Bones may be leaving our screens for good, but the good news is that there are plenty of other television dramas out there that pack as much of a punch as Bones has for 12 years. If you're a lover of the show who's sad to see it go, do yourself a favor and cope with your loss by watching or catching up on a few (or all) of these fan favorites that are sure to fill that space in your heart.
