Bones executive producer, Stephen Nathan said that this was something they had been discussing even before Emily announced her pregnancy in real life. He assured the fans that this was not a dream and that Bones and Booth are now a couple and expectant parents. He further added that in season 7, the characters will remain the same, the disagreements between the two will continue and series fans will have to watch out how they handle the new developments.
Now that the two are together, the new season will kick off with a whole new set of complications as Bones and Booth will try and figure out their future together. There are also reports that Fox will introduce a spin-off with ‘The Finder’ when Emily would be on her maternity leave.
