TVLINE – If that isn’t the face of someone who’s up to no good, we don’t know what is! TVLine has obtained an exclusive first look at Emily Deschanel in action in the upcoming Season 4 of TNT’s criminally addictive Animal Kingdom — and judging from the way that the Bones vet is casting a backward glance in the image, it’s safe to say that her new character is leaving as much trouble behind her as she stands to make going forward.
Per the network, Deschanel’s Angela, who’s only recently been released from prison, is the former BFF of Pope’s late sister, J’s mother Julia. When the drama returns this summer, the recovering junkie shows up at the Cody clan’s sweet digs and tries to “snake her way back into the family’s good graces.”
Which, as you can imagine, will be easier said than done. Though Angela is described as “a survivor — scrappy [and] manipulative,” the addict’s past as Julia’s drug buddy makes her persona non grata as far as J’s concerned. Smurf’s antennae will also go up upon Angela’s arrival. (Then again, the Codys’ matriarch is suspicious of most people.) So Angela may make her top priority getting in good — and getting in bed — with Julia’s off-kilter twin, Pope.
The Animal Kingdom arc represents Deschanel’s first TV gig since Bones wrapped its decade-long run two years ago.

FOX – Zooey Deschanel, star of the romantic comedy “(500) Days of Summer” and sister of BONES’ Emily Deschanel, will guest-star in “The Goop on the Girl,” a special holiday-themed episode of BONES airing Thursday, Dec. 10 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
In this first-ever on-screen pairing of the Deschanel sisters, Zooey Deschanel plays MARGARET WHITESELL, a distant relative of DR. TEMPERANCE BRENNAN (Emily Deschanel). When Brennan’s father, MAX KEENAN (guest star Ryan O’Neal), makes contact with Margaret, he invites her to spend Christmas with him and his daughter. Meanwhile, Brennan and BOOTH (David Boreanaz) investigate the death of a man dressed as Santa Claus who was blown up after a botched bank robbery.
Zooey Deschanel’s film credits include “All the Real Girls” for which she received an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Lead Actress; “Elf” with Will Ferrell; “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” with Sam Rockwell, Mos Def and John Malkovich; “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” opposite Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck; “Gigantic” with Paul Dano; and “Yes Man” opposite Jim Carrey. She will next be seen in the film “Your Highness” opposite Danny McBride, James Franco and Natalie Portman. In addition to her work on-screen, Deschanel and singer-songwriter M. Ward perform together as the musical duo She & Him. The pair has earned rave reviews for their debut album, “Volume 1.”
The milestone 100th episode of BONES, directed by Boreanaz, will air in spring 2010.
BONES is from Far Field Productions and Josephson Entertainment in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Hart Hanson, Stephen Nathan, Ian Toynton and Barry Josephson are executive producers.
I found an article on the release of Season Three on DVD
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment just announced that Bones’ season 3 DVD will be available a little more than a month from now on November 18. The comprehensive five-disc package will contain all 15 full-hour episodes plus four bonus episodes from Season Four (by the time it gets out, all four episodes would’ve aired already anyway).
As DVDs go, however, this package will include some nifty features, such as three extended episodes, a gag reel, an extended kissing scene between Bones and Booth (in “The Santa in the Slush”), and director’s takes. Like all those before it, Bones Season 3 DVD is presented in wide screen with English 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound with either English, French, or Spanish subtitles.
