According to TVLine, six episodes of 'Bones' will air this fall (Thurs., Nov. 3 at 9PM ET on Fox), then the show will go on break to accommodate Emily Deschanel's pregnancy. 'The Finder' will fill the gap on Fox's schedule with the addition seven episodes airing in the spring.
The extra four? They might air over the summer or become part of Season 8 ... if there is an eighth season.
Stephen Nathan, 'Bones' executive producer, told TVLine that the show is still approaching episode 13 as the Season 7 finale.
"And then there will ultimately be four more episodes that we can play with," he said.
"[Fox] could run them on a different night, they could run them in the summer, or they could hold them for fall."
The extra four episodes will be written as standalone episodes, sort of a mini-season.
"It's weird, and it's a challenge," Nathan said. "But we'll do it."
