Fox has made its first drama series renewal for the fall: Bones will be back for an eighth season.

“Over the past seven seasons, Hart Hanson, Stephen Nathan and the incredible Bones cast and crew have redefined the traditional crime procedural with an irreverent and adventurous sensibility and I’m really happy to have this distinctive, fan-favorite on our schedule for another season,” said Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly.

Next season, Bones will hit its 150th episode. Bones returns for seven more episodes starting Monday, April 2.
