According to the report, David’s co-star, Emily Deschanel, wants to continue with the show, and is committed to keeping it on the air with or without Boreanaz.
However, keeping “Bones” going without David Boreanaz would be difficult. The two lead characters are set to wed in an upcoming episode, and explaining his absence would be hard for writers. Although they could recast the character.
“Bones” is currently in its eighth season, and David has allegedly been telling everyone that he won’t sign on for season 9.
“The show makes a lot of money, but re-casting a lead is always a challenge. The network could throw in the towel if David can’t be signed for more seasons after this one,” an insider revealed.
Recasting a main character is always hard, and loyal fans usually don’t adapt well to the change of their beloved character, which means the show could get the axe if David doesn’t stay on.
