Fox and 20th Century Fox Television have agreed to renew its popular series Bones for a fifth season. According to Variety, the two-year deal to bring the series back culminated in a tough negotiation between the studio that makes the series and the network that airs it.

Executive producer Hart Hanson broke the news via his personal Twitter account. He stated, "Business is business. It takes a while to get all of the major players on the same page." The show was never in danger of being cancelled, as the series has helped Fox dominate the Thursday night ratings for the first time in years.

At this time, there is word on what we can expect to see on the upcoming fifth season of Bones.
