"Buffy" fans: Are you ready to see Sarah Michelle Gellar's real-life husband face off against "Angel" himself, David Boreanaz?

It may not be exactly the battle Whedonites were waiting for, but "Bones" fans will see Freddie Prinze Jr. as a CIA agent named Danny, an "armed and dangerous" old associate of Booth’s, who's particularly invested in Booth (Boreanaz) and Brennan’s (Emily Deschanel) murder investigation. He'll appear in the Season 9 premiere, TVLine was the first to report.

The Huffington Post has confirmed with a Fox rep that Prinze has potential for a multi-episode arc on "Bones'" upcoming season.

As for the Season 9 premiere of "Bones," executive producer Ian Toynton said at the show's 2013 San Diego Comic-Con panel that "the relationship between [Booth and Brennan] will be slightly different and the relationship will be pushed to a different place ... They’re in a serious place.” Fellow executive producer Hart Hanson added, perhaps hinting of Prinze's role, "Everybody’s mad at Booth so he seeks out someone he can talk to."
