This article is about the American television show. See Leonard McCoy for the Star Trek character.

Bones is a TV series based on the work and life of Kathy Reichs, a forensic anthropologist and the mystery writer who created the character of Dr. Temperance Brennan (aka "Bones"), though the TV show's Brennan is more based on Reichs herself than her work. Brennan is partnered with FBI agent Seeley Booth, and show also focuses the members of her workplace, the fictional Jeffersonian Institute: Angela, Hodgins, Cam, Zach, and Sweets. As of season four, Zach's no longer a part of the show's regular cast, though his character has made a few guest appearances.

The primary het pairing of the fandom is Booth/Brennan, followed by Angela/Hodgins.

Many media fans came to Bones by following David Boreanaz, who plays Booth, from BTVS and Angel; the show is also popular with fans of procedurals and fans who like shows with strong female characters (e.g. BTVS, Alias, etc.) Bones easily--and constantly--passes the Bechdel Test.
