"Bones" started shooting Season 11 in the first week of August, but star David Boreanaz was late to class and only just started filming this week. Why? TVLine got an update from Booth himself, who said he had a health scare earlier this summer. It was apparently a bad reaction to an antibiotic, but he's recovered enough to now be on set, taping scenes that will be inserted into the episodes he missed, including the premiere.

Here's a statement from David:

Nothing matters to me more than Bones, so I was thrilled when the producers came up with a way for me to take a few extra weeks to recover from a personal health issue without delaying production. I'm happy to say that I'm now feeling great and will be back to work tomorrow, and that our 11th season premiere will broadcast on schedule – with me in it."

That premiere arrives October 1 on FOX. TVLine had previously said that , to accommodate his late start, "Bones" created a Season 11 storyline where Booth goes missing. They said "24" star Kim Raver would be appearing as Grace Miller, a FBI special agent brought in to assist the investigation surrounding Booth's disappearance.

Here's hoping Bones is found safe and sound, and David stays healthy and strong.
