The Bones References In Lucifer, Explained


The “Bones” references aren’t just a one-off; three seasons later, after the show had been canceled by FOX (also the network behind “Bones”) and landed on Netflix, “Bones” came up again in a big way. In the show’s penultimate episode, Lucifer’s daughter from the future, Rory (Brianna Hildebrand), shares a bonding moment with her dad over “Bones” and its reboot. What reboot, you ask? Well, one that “Lucifer” made up that, in a stroke of inspiration, is called “More Bones.” According to Rory (and the script pages shared by TVLine at the time), “More Bones” stars the cyborg daughter of Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel), Borgie. Of course, the lead characters in “Bones” already have kids by the end of the series, but Borgie is presumably a third child – unless their daughter Christine somehow turns into a bionic woman later in life.

At any rate, Rory tells Lucifer that “More Bones” rocks, and that the sexual tension between Borgie and her boneless android partner Agent Andro is “off the charts.” Hilariously, “Lucifer” co-showrunner Joe Henderson told TVLine that the initial “Bones” reference, accompanied by clips from early seasons of the show that pique Luci’s interest, were something he had to fight for. “Part of what drove [the references] is we fought so hard to get those ‘Bones’ clips,” he told the outlet in 2021. “It was the weirdest fight I’ve ever picked, where I was calling people up like, ‘I need ‘Bones,’ I need ‘Bones!'” Getting the rights to footage from another TV show can be tricky, even when the two shows share a network.
