Looks like Hart Hanson and his home boys will have plenty of material for future seasons of Bones! Kathy Reichs has just negotiated a deal with Bantam Dell for three brand new Temperance Brennan novels (she was previously published by Scribner), and we're beyond excited.

Obviously, Bones is based on Kathy's series, which serves as a huge inspiration for the show. The first of her new books will come out in 2012, and will most likely be a smash hit best seller just like the original 15!

“Kathy Reichs is one of the sharpest and most entertaining suspense novelists writing today. We are thrilled to welcome her to our list and expand her readership,” EVP Publisher of Ballantine Bantam Dell, Libby McGuire, tells Deadline. “Kathy’s ability to weave science, forensics, and suspense is unmatched. We are all excited to collaborate with her on these new novels.”

Our bodies are ready! And no, that is not an invitation for maggot analysis, Hodgins (TJ Thyne).
