Bones' showrunner Stephen Nathan has opened up about the last episode of the show's sixth season following its transmission yesterday.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly's Inside TV blog, Nathan confirmed that the show's writers had considered making Dr Temperance 'Bones' Brennan pregnant before actress Emily Deschanel announced that she was expecting a baby with husband David Hornsby.

"This was something that we had been discussing even before Emily found out she was pregnant," he explained. "It's very difficult to find a way to deal with two characters who everybody knows should be together without embracing what everybody calls the Moonlighting curse.

"We had to find a way to keep [Seeley] Booth and Brennan... and keep the integrity of those characters intact, and yet move them along because you can only wait so long. So we wanted to avoid that part of the relationship where you first get together and the fresh glow of love, and you're sharing dessert, and you're overly polite. We didn't want to do that."

Nathan continued by saying that he recognised that some fans would be wary about making Booth and Brennan parents, but asserted that the show would not become "a show about having babies... it's not Parenthood".

He further added: "I'm sure there are gonna be some viewers who are upset. 'Oh, the baby's gonna do this and do that'. A lot of viewers always make up their mind on how we're gonna ruin the show before it happens.

"Hopefully, we will disappoint those viewers. And the viewers who have faith that we'll be able to take the show into new territory - well, we hope we won't disappoint them."

He also promised that the pair would make "a unique couple... it won't be what you expect".

Bones returns to Fox later this year.
