Update: Fox announced that Bones has been officially renewed for a seventh season.
In this age of social media, why wouldn't the star of a hit procedural announce the renewal of his series over Twitter? According to David Boreanaz, the Fox series Bones will return for a seventh season.
Wrote the star on Twitter Monday night: "Season 7 is GO for Bones." That tweet was summarily deleted, but it doesn't appear to be done in error; judging from Bones' ratings and the timing, expect it to be confirmed in the coming weeks.
