Though it was never really in any doubt, and even less in doubt after star David Boreanaz who plays FBI agent Seeley Booth tweeted the news last night, it's now officially official. Here's the press release from Fox:
FOX UNCOVERS ANOTHER SEASON OF “BONES”
Fan-Favorite Series Renewed for Seventh Season
All-New Episode Airs Thursday, May 5, on FOX
FOX has renewed the hit series BONES for a seventh season, it was announced today by Kevin Reilly, President of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.

In the all-new “The Signs in the Silence” episode, airing Thursday, May 5 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), a 15-year-old Jane Doe, who is hearing impaired and unable to communicate, is found on the streets covered in blood and wielding a knife, leading the team to believe she is responsible for a recent murder.
