FOX expects 'Bones' and 'House' back next season, pending negotiations
"I anticipate they're both going to be back," says Reilly. "We have some negotiations to go through."
Creatively, both executives are pleased with two of the networks' longest running series. In their respective sixth and seventh seasons, "Bones" and "House" still perform consistently in ratings -- and "Bones" recently got a vote of confidence with a post- "American Idol" time slot, starting Jan. 20.
"We're currently in the process of making a deal to bring back 'House' and 'Bones,'" Reilly continues. "We want them both."
