Actor David Boreanaz has said that a major character in the television series 'Bones' will be killed in the coming season.

Speaking to E!, the actor, who plays Agent Booth in the show, said of the new season: "It's exciting, because someone's going to get killed at the end of the season."

"I think you have to kind of mix it up a little bit. I think you have to kill a series regular off as you get into the higher [seasons]."

The actor hinted that the storyline would be "big" but refused to say which characters would be involved.
