David Boreanaz is headed straight back to TV after his stint on Bones, and his new show SEAL Team is looking promising. Boreanaz plays elite Navy SEAL Jason Hayes in this high-action, hour long CBS drama.

Hayes is charming and gregarious, but he is also saddled with the trauma of past missions, hunting some of the world's most dangerous and evil villains. He and his team are sent to some of the most remote and treacherous parts of the world to keep America safe from its enemies.

Being heroes puts an incredible strain on their personal lives. Suffering from PTSD, Hayes is in therapy for a particularly damaging experience, and he struggles to find balance between his emotional issues, his duty and his family.

Hayes is part of a superior squad, but workplace politics can sometimes interfere with how well they get along with each other. Max Thieriot plays the young hot shot, Clay, who works as a foil to Boreanaz' Hayes. The show also features Neil Brown, Jr. (Insecure), A.J. Buckley (Pure), Toni Trucks (NCIS: New Orleans) and Jessica Pare (Mad Men).

Boreanaz spoke to TV Insider about his new role as Jason Hayes, and what it's like to play a character with such a complicated emotional history. He said, "Jason Hayes is a flawed SEAL team operative leader who's the best of the best, but he's trying to hold it all together [personally]. He's very comfortable on missions. He thrives on them -- being in the military is his love, his passion. When he gets home he finds he has difficulty dealing with certain things, like relationships. He has two kids, he's gone through a separation and is a hypersensitive guy."

About the military aspect of the show, the former Bones actor was thrilled to work with former SEAL operatives as consultants. He said, "Our consulting producer Mark Semos was very influential in me doing this show [and understanding these men]. He told me: SEAL guys go all in. If they're going to do shots of tequila, it's a whole bottle. There are a number of lost team members Mark still has in his phone. He can't acknowledge [that loss] yet. I don't even know when that can happen for him."

Boreanaz told TV Insider that he was attracted to the "brotherhood" of the show, and his chemistry with the other actors really shows. Of course, he can do no TV wrong, but SEAL Team looks like it could be a breakout hit of the 2017 fall season.

When a long-running television series ends, the creator can be eager to try something different. Hart Hanson followed up 12 seasons of “Bones,” based on novels by Kathy Reichs, with a novel of his own, and it’s a very good one.

In “The Driver,” Michael Skellig is an ex-soldier who runs a Los Angeles limousine company employing some of the military’s misfits.

Skellig has a war-tested instinct for danger, and in the opening, a voice in the wind leads him into a nightclub just in time to save his client, a celebrity skateboarder named Bismarck Avila, from a chaotic and confusing attack.

Kathy Reichs’ thrillers (30 million and counting) have been turned into flesh and blood with the TV hit Bones, but it’s her day-job cases as a forensic anthropologist – from the butcher serial killer to the murderous in-laws – that will leave you chilled to the bone!

She prides herself on being a ‘voice from beyond the grave’ for those who can no longer speak for themselves. Forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs, known to all as ‘the bones lady’, is one of the world’s leading experts in finding out how, where and when someone died – often handling those who have endured the most gruesome and grisly ends imaginable.

‘No one starts off the day thinking they will end up on my table,’ she says with a half-smile. ‘I handle a lot of murder cases and deaths that need forensic explanation.

‘Someone has to tell their story. And that’s where I come in.’

Unlike her former co-star David Boreanaz, who just signed on to headline CBS’ Navy SEAL-themed drama pilot, leading lady Emily Deschanel will not be diving back into the job market so soon after wrapping her 12-year stint on Bones.

“David texted me the news and I wrote back, ‘Amazing. Good on you,'” the actress recalls. “I’m just so impressed that he’s willing to do that right now. But that’s not where I’m at. I’m at a place where I need time to grieve and process the show ending. I’m still recovering.”

Luckily, Deschanel agreed to briefly pause her post-Bones detox to answer a few questions about Tuesday’s series finale.

“Bones,” one of the longest-running will-they-won’t-they shows on TV, finally comes to a close Tuesday night after 12 seasons of murder.

Two hundred and forty-five episodes of forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and FBI agent Seeley Both (David Boreanaz) flirting around dead bodies told the stories of Angela Montenegro (Michaela Conlin), Jack Hodgins (T.J. Thyne), Camille Saroyan (Tamara Taylor), Lance Sweets (John Francis Daley) and a revolving cast of “squinterns.”

But somehow, Hart Hanson’s underrated drama balanced the larger romances with weekly, and sometimes season-long, stories that stayed fresh — even if the corpses didn’t.

As “Bones” ends at 9 p.m. on Tuesday, we take a look at the crime drama’s best moments:

Booth and Brennan’s second kiss (“The Santa in the Slush,” season 3, episode 9)
Under strong duress from Caroline Julian (Patricia Belcher), the forensic anthropologist and the FBI agent share their second kiss — and the first in real-time — under the Christmas mistletoe. Booth and Brennan maintained their strict professional line for a few more seasons, but the 100th episode of “Bones” kept viewers coming back for more.

As Fox prepares to air the Bones series finale on March 28, series creator Hart Hanson looks back at the journey to reach 246 episodes.

What was it about David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel that made you know they were right for Booth and Brennan?
We cast David first. I didn't even need a meeting when [now-chairman and CEO of Fox Television Group] Dana Walden said, "Would you consider David Boreanaz?" I was going, "Yes, I'll take him." We had been looking for our leading man for a couple of months, and I didn't want a pretty boy. The idea was to have this incredibly strong female lead, I wanted a guy, so we had lots of sparks. We'd seen some very good man-boys. [Laughs.] And David is incredibly that guy; he's an American male. He has a retro feeling to him.

Tamara Taylor has played Jeffersonian Lab chief Dr. Camille Saroyan for eleven of BONES twelve seasons. Over the years, Cam – an ex-girlfriend of FBI Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) – has adopted teenaged daughter Michelle (Tiffany Hines), made peace with her sister Felicia (Raney Branch), married longtime boyfriend/lab assistant Dr. Arastoo Vaziri (Pej Vahdat), risked her life on the job and suffered through innumerable explosive lab experiments concocted by Dr. Jack Hodgins (TJ Thyne).

Ever since they shared an "electric" pivotal audition together, Bones' David Boreanaz (Booth) and Emily Deschanel (Brennan) have been a match made in TV heaven. Over a dozen seasons, the duo has portrayed Booth and Brennan as they transitioned from a spark-filled working relationship to something far more complicated to a family unit (with an eventual marriage).

As Bones winds down—with its series finale airing Tuesday, March 28—Boreanaz and Deschanel reflect on bringing the drama to its end.

David Boreanaz has booked his first post-Bones role.

The actor has signed onto star in CBS' untitled Navy SEAL drama pilot, replacing Jim Caviezel, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The project follows the lives of the elite unit as they train and plan the most dangerous, high-stakes missions our country can ask. Boreanaz will play Jason, the respected, committed leader of his assault team who's been through over a dozen deployments.

Caviezel exited the project over creative differences. The cast also includes Jessica Pare (Mad Men), Max Thieriot, Neil Brown Jr., A.J. Buckley and Toni Trucks.

Ben Cavell (Sneaky Pete, Homeland) penned the script and will executive produce alongside Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly. Chris Chulack (Shameless, ER) is also on board to exec produce and direct the pilot, which hails from CBS Television Studios.

For Boreanaz, the casting comes a week ahead of the series finale of Bones, on which he has starred for the past 12 seasons. The veteran actor also served as a producer on the Fox procedural and directed several episodes. His other TV credits include his breakout role on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spinoff, Angel, in which Boreanaz starred.

t's the end of an era for Fox as Bones does its victory lap ahead of the last episode of the 12-season series. The emotions are running high, to say the least. To celebrate the Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz series, Fox assembled the cast and crew for a 20-minute retrospective on set of the series—but be warned: the video was shot in December 2016 as sets were already beginning to be dismantled.

"I think it's the end of a village. It feels like you go back to a village and it's just gone," series creator Hart Hanson said.

(This video is longer than the one posted earlier)

The cast and crew take you on a trip back in time to various sets and tools used by Booth, Brennan and co. over the years—even the disastrous ones. It's a true walk down memory lane with revelations and never before seen footage. Did you know Bones went from that title to Brennan to things like Skeleton Crew and "everything to do with skeletons, and bones," Hanson said. It wasn't until he added a line about Brennan's nickname being Bones that the title became acceptable to the powers that be.

Looking back at the first episode and when viewers first see Booth and Brennan together, Hanson said he made a promise to Deschanel after Booth recuses Brennan.

"I felt I'd go to Emily say, I promise that he won't be recusing you all the time," Hanson said. "For every time he rescues you, you will rescue him."

The video features a look at the show's dynamic fanbase, which has stood by the show for 12 seasons. "They just never gave up on the show, and that is the only reason why we are still on the air," T. J. Thyne said.

But all things must come to an end.

"It feels strange," Deschanel said.

"But I feel good," Boreanaz said.

"It's been weird not to go back to work, in a way, but it hasn't really hit me yet," she said.
Be sure to watch the video above for more Bones secrets, like how the producers got the test audiences on Booth's side after they originally didn't like the character.

The series finale of Bones airs Tuesday, March 28 at 9 p.m. on Fox.
