Fox renews "Bones" — to no one's great surprise

This isn't exactly shocking news, but Fox has renewed "Bones" for an eighth season.

Which is pretty much what network execs and the show's producer, Hart Hanson, had been saying for weeks. Months.

Here's the official release from Fox:

BRENNAN AND BOOTH HAVE ANOTHER REASON TO CELEBRATE

AS FOX DELIVERS AN EIGHTH SEASON OF "BONES"

It's a Girl! BONES Returns with a New Arrival on the First of Seven All-New Episodes Monday, April 2, on FOX

FOX has renewed the hit series BONES for its upcoming eighth season, it was announced today by Kevin Reilly, President of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.

"Over the past seven seasons, Hart Hanson, Stephen Nathan and the incredible BONES cast and crew have redefined the traditional crime procedural with an irreverent and adventurous sensibility and I'm really happy to have this distinctive, fan-favorite on our schedule for another season," Reilly said.

BONES returns with seven in a row, all-new episodes on a new night and at a new time beginning Monday, April 2 (7 p.m. MT). In the first of these episodes, "The Prisoner in the Pipe," the remains of an escaped convict are found in a residential sewer, but an examination of the sewer pipes indicates that the murder occurred within prison walls. When Brennan (Emily Deschanel) insists on solving the crime - despite Booth's (David Boreanaz) pleas for her not to overexert herself - the expectant couple experience a very untraditional arrival of their baby daughter.

During the upcoming eighth season, BONES will celebrate its 150th milestone episode.

I think that was supposed to be "milestone 150th episode." I don't think there's ever been a TV series in which every single episode was a milestone.
