'Bones' Season 6 pics: The band gets back together

bones-mastodon.jpgWhat a difference a year makes on "Bones" -- because that picture you're looking at up above, the one with Booth ( David Boreanaz) and Brennan ( Emily Deschanel) wearing incredulous looks on their faces?

Yeah -- that's the lab. The times, they are a-changin' at the Jeffersonian, and apparently the institute needed some extra exhibit space.

The show's Season 6 premiere will pick up at the end of everyone's study-abroad year and the reunion of Booth, back from Afghanistan, and Brennan, who's returned from her dig in the Maluku islands. Their reunion (with downtown Los Angeles standing in for Washington) is below.

See below for the full "Bones" team, including squinterns Wendell ( Michael Grant Terry) and Daisy ( Carla Gallo) and prosecutor Caroline ( Patrica Belcher), taking in what's become of their former workspace. Also: Sweets ( John Francis Daley) has facial hair! Seriously -- we had to blow up his face a little to let you see the full, scruffy glory of boy-genius profiler's face furniture.

bones-cast-sweets.jpg"Bones" premieres Sept. 23. What do you think of the Season 6 pics, and of Sweets' attempt to look like a grownup?
