TV fans aren’t the only ones who have burning questions. In our series Ask the Fans, Yahoo TV flips the script and finds out what questions producers have always wanted to pose to their viewers.

Next up, Michael Peterson and Jonathan Collier, executive producers of Fox’s Bones, now in its 12th and final season. Read their seven questions, then either reply in the comments section below, or email your thoughts to by Jan. 26. We’ll report the most popular and insightful answers back to Peterson and Collier, then post their responses on Jan. 31.

Michael Peterson and Jonathan Collier ask the fans:

1. What are you all-time favorite Bones episodes? Why?

2. Have you ever worked in a professional capacity with your spouse or a loved one before? Was it challenging?

3. Has Bones inspired any of our viewers to go into the field of forensic anthropology or study science more broadly? We’d love to hear about what you do and if/how Bones influenced that decision!

4. Have you ever been so grossed-out by the bodies on our show that you’ve had to look away from the TV? We hope not for too long!

5. Have you ever solved a personal problem using scientific evidence or clues?

6. Have Aubrey’s scenes ever made you hungry? Writing them has definitely made us hungry before.

7. What will you miss the most about Bones when it goes off the air? We will miss interacting with our incredible and loyal fans — the Boneheads!

Bones airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Fox.
