'Bones' Renewed: Fox Orders Season 8

"Bones" isn't going anywhere. Fox has renewed the fan-favorite drama for an eighth season.

"Over the past seven seasons, Hart Hanson, Stephen Nathan and the incredible 'Bones' cast and crew have redefined the traditional crime procedural with an irreverent and adventurous sensibility and I'm really happy to have this distinctive, fan-favorite on our schedule for another season,” Kevin Reilly, president of entertainment at Fox, said in a statement.

The show will celebrate its 150th episode during the upcoming eighth season. Season 8 will see the stars of "Bones" -- including David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel -- get a raise. TJ Thyne, Michaela Conlin, Tamara Taylor and John Francis Daley also star.

"Bones" returns for more Season 7 episodes on Mon., April 2 at 8 p.m. ET with a new addition. Here's how Fox describes the next new episode, "The Prisoner in the Pipe."

The remains of an escaped convict are found in a residential sewer, but an examination of the sewer pipes indicates that the murder occurred within prison walls. When Brennan (Emily Deschanel) insists on solving the crime – despite Booth’s (David Boreanaz) pleas for her not to overexert herself – the expectant couple experience a very untraditional arrival of their baby daughter.
