David Boreanaz created some fan worry when he said he is a free agent after this season of “Bones.” You need only read between the lines to imagine he’s either considering a departure, or holding out for more money. Either case could be bad news for Fox if they can’t make a deal with him.

After a Television Critics Association executive session, Fox President of Entertainment, Kevin Reilly stated that he had every expectation that Boreanaz would stay with “Bones.”

“We’re negotiating with David,” said Reilly. “I don’t expect that to be the case [that he’s leaving.]”

Reilly added that he’s already ordered two more seasons of “Bones,” so he certainly did that under the impression that the cast would remain intact.

“‘Bones’ has really been one of the mainstays of the schedule and we have picked it up for two more years, this being the first of a two year deal. I certainly would expect David to be a part of it.”
