Bones Spoilers: Prison Doesn’t Treat Booth Well

When we last saw Booth, he was being arrested for murdering three federal agents and when Bones returns for its 10th season premiere, the news doesn’t get much better.

Season 10 picks up four months after Season 9 ended. Booth is still in prison and apparently isn’t in the best state of mind. “He’s a man of much anger and he is fueled to find out who did this to his family,” actor David Boreanaz told “I wouldn’t want to get in his way right now.”

While Brennan eventually finds a way to free him, the events of his imprisonment will apparently go on to have a major effect on Booth for the course of the season. “We’re going to shake someone’s trust in everything they’ve believed in,” executive producer Stephen Nathan says. “Booth has never been in that situation before. He’s trusted the government and put his life on the line. … Everything has been damaged — head, heart, body. Putting it back together is a challenge.”

Bones returns to FOX on September 25 at 8 p.m. EST
