http://www.tvinsider.com/article/90880/ask-matt-emmy-long-shots-blacklists-fake-out-braindead-limitless-the-flash-bones-and-more/Question: I love Bones and am very sorry to hear that next season will be the last. Do you have any insight into why such a shortened season? Really wish they would have made it to 250 episodes. - JD
Matt Roush: 245, if I’m doing the math right, is nothing to sneeze at. Neither is 12 seasons, even if the last is only half a season. While the network and studio insist the various lawsuits (over profits) had nothing to do with considerations for Bones’ renewal, this situation reads to me like a way to give the show, and its fans, some necessary closure while drawing the curtain on an operation that had become prohibitively costly and problematic to keep in perpetual production. This still appears to be going out more smoothly than Castle did.
