The long wait from Bones Season 7 Finale to Season 8 Premiere is starting to get to us — we’re counting bone fragments while we fall asleep while visions of Booth’s (David Boreanaz) “Cocky” belt buckle dances in our heads — but there’s hope that these long stretches of Bones deprivation-related psychosis will all be worth the wait. (Of course it will!)

Executive producer Stephen Nathan stirred up some butterflies in our abdominal cavity when he shared this bit of delicious news via Twitter, “The #Bones staff is doing a phenomenal job. People are dying in the most delightfully gruesome ways! Yummy!” Based on the super-disgusting recent photos of Bones props, we have no reason to doubt him at all.

Season 8 of Bones starts on September 17th — and we can’t wait!
