No thanks to David Boreanaz’s (Agent Seeley Booth) reckless tweeting, word on the street is that Bones might not be back for an eighth season, but we're here to tell you the cold hard truth. Your favorite crime drama will make its triumphant return this fall with a brand new year of jaw-dropping mysteries starting September 17th, 2012.

"Our show was picked up months ago so it is coming back for the 8th season in September," Emily Deschanel (Temperance Brennan) tells ET. Take that, rumor mill — and you thought we might not see Baby Christine's rise to power!

Expect spoilers about Bones' new season to start up in July, when the cast begins filming. Sigh, just thinking about B&B's adorable love affair makes us start shaking with joy. September can't get here soon enough!
