Emily Deschanel has teased some of the upcoming cases that will be encountered on Bones.

The actress, who plays Temperance Brennan in the Fox crime drama, told Digital Spy on a recent conference call that fans can expect to see future episodes of the show revolving around "daredevil" BMX bikers and polygamists.

She also revealed that the Gravedigger would be making a return early next year in an "action-packed" episode, while co-star David Boreanaz (Seeley Booth) would direct an episode that features a sniper loose in DC.

"I just love that one," she added. "It's a really exciting one!"

Tomorrow night's episode of Bones will be told from Brennan's perspective as she works on a case involving a murdered doctor which forces her to confront her own life and decisions that she has made in the past.

However, the actress said that, while the investigation prompts Brennan to take a risk in her personal life, it will not see her character becoming disillusioned with her career as happened before.

"It does come up a bit but not as much anymore - I think Brennan realised when she was away from it how much she missed it," she explained.

"I think it's a small factor but not a big one. I think she realises that she is good at this, enjoys it and loves solving crimes, and loves doing it with the team she does it with."

She added: "You can actually affect the world when you are solving crimes as opposed to identifying ancient remains. Sure, it can impact science in such a huge way but right now if you are solving a crime you are putting people behind bars and stopping new crimes from happening.

"You are bringing some tiny bit of peace to family members. I think she likes being that person and I think she recognised that when she was away from it."

'The Doctor In The Photo' airs tomorrow night at 8/7c on Fox.
