Press Release confirming all 26 episodes

The Futon Critic has the official press release confirming what I told you about this morning: all 26 Season 4 episodes will air this season.

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- After being greeted on Thursday nights with six pre-emptions in 11 weeks, FOX hopes to make it up to "Bones" fans with special Monday and Wednesday broadcasts later this month.

Said first-run episodes - airing Wednesday, April 15 at 8:00/7:00c and Monday, April 20 at 8:00/7:00c - are in addition to the seven left to air in its regular Thursday, 8:00/7:00c home, beginning tonight.

The news means that, barring any other changes, all 26 episodes filmed for its fourth season will air.

"24" is the only other drama on television to produce as many hours this season (24 for season seven plus the two-hour "Redemption" prequel).

Not surprising to see the caveat "barring any other changes" in there. Grumble.

wow, this is actually amazing -- even if Fox ends up reneging, they're at least making an effort! I feel like they finally understand how important bones is to us, otherwise they'd never even TRY to accommodate fans like this (kind of like they didnt try for the first three seasons). I mean, this is real progress people! I, for one, am excited. It bodes well for a long & prosperous future of bones (as in, NOT GETTING CANCELED ANYTIME SOON!!) :)
