Bones' Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) seems like he’d be way too manly to have "mommy issues," but that might not actually turn out to be the case.

We know all about Booth's troubled relationship with his dad, but we've heard almost nothing about his mom until now. During a media conference call on September 5, Bones Executive Producer Stephen Nathan was asked if viewers will learn more about B&B's past next season.

"Oh yes. Yes, definitely. Brennan's [Emily Deschanel] dad will be back and we hope to have Booth’s grandfather, and maybe even meet a couple of other family members."

Hmm, way to be cryptic, Stephen! Luckily, Hart Hanson was there to elaborate. "We’ve very interested in the back nine [episodes of the season] somewhere in meeting Booth’s mom and having Booth’s mom meet Brennan.”

So how exactly will Booth’s mama react to meeting her son’s lovely ladyfriend. Brennan hasn’t exactly been known to display the best people skills, after all. “But we haven’t figured out that story yet, but it’s in our bin,” Hart says. 

Rest assured, though. Booth’s mom is coming. ”It’s about time to see Booth’s family a little bit,” Hart says. “We have some ideas for Booth’s mom, so we’re investigating all that. We want to make it good."
