Bones Season 6

The sixth season of the American television series Bones premiered on September 23, 2010, and concluded on May 19, 2011, on the Fox Network. The show maintained its previous time slot, airing on Thursdays at 8:00 pm ET and then moved to Thursdays at 9:00 pm ET in 2011. The season consisted of 23 episodes.

Storylines for the sixth season include the final return of Heather Taffet aka the Gravedigger (Deirdre Lovejoy), as well as the introduction of a new recurring antagonist, who is a sniper named Jacob Broadsky portrayed by Arnold Vosloo. David Boreanaz directed episodes 11 (produced as 10) and 16 of this season. Emily Deschanel was originally scheduled to make her directorial debut with episode 14 of this season, a Valentine's Day wedding episode, but was postponed due to episodes 13 and 14 airing during February sweeps where Brennan's character would have a smaller presence as Deschanel would be prepping to direct her episode. Deschanel did not end up directing an episode due to scheduling conflicts, but plans on directing an episode in the next season. After dropping the idea of a black-and-white episode last season, creator Hart Hanson revealed the "out of the box" episode this season would be a story shown completely from Brennan's point of view after she identifies a victim that resembles her, "meaning we will see the world the way she sees it. We hope this will give a little insight into how Brennan perceives all around her." Ryan Cartwright, who portrayed intern Vincent Nigel-Murray since being introduced as a recurring character in season four, was killed off in the penultimate episode of season, when the character was killed by sniper Jacob Broadsky. Series creator Hart Hanson explained the reasoning for the decision due to the television series Alphas being picked up, which Cartwright is a series regular on. Hanson explained, "We knew [his exit] would happen before the end of this season, so the story has been in the works for a while. We knew that one of our squints, who are [played by] very, very talented actors, would get a job." Hanson also explained that, "He's a well-beloved character... probably the favorite squint of the audience, so we decided to kill him for the heartbreak."
