David Boreanaz might be leaving "Bones," the Fox TV series that is now in its ninth season, according to show insiders who spoke exclusively with Radar Online.

"David is telling friends that it’s his last season," a source close to the show told Radar Online, adding that the rumor is not a negotiating tactic.

But Boreanaz himself quelled fears via a Twitter Q&A on Monday.

And another tweet from the actor on Monday seemed to suggest he'd be around for longer than Season 10 if everything falls into place.

The rumors come at a time when Boreanaz's character, Special Agent Seeley Booth, is scheduled to marry Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan, the female counterpart on the show played by actress Emily Deschanel.

If the source is correct, this isn't the first time Boreanaz has floated the idea of leaving the show.

In June 2012, Boreanaz tweeted, "I’m a free agent after this season [Season8]. So the Bones farewell tour is in full-swing. You must always keep your options open and ready for new challenges. The fear is the unknown and that’s exciting."

By January, however, the show's creator Hart Hanson confirmed that Boreanaz would stay on "at least through season nine," Radar Online reported.

Despite rumors that Boreanaz is looking to leave the show, Deschanel is said to be committed to staying on and seeing it through into Season 10.

Network executives at Fox — as well as fans — might not be as supportive of continuing the crime comedy-drama if Boreanaz isn't part of it.

"The show makes a lot of money, but re-casting a lead is always a challenge," the source tells Radar Online. "The network could throw in the towel if David can’t be signed for more seasons after this one."

"Bones," which airs on Fox Monday nights at 8 p.m., has 7.26 million viewers, according to Nielsen TV ratings, and is in fourth place in its timeslot, behind CBS' "How I Met Your Mother," with 7.87 million viewers, ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" with 13.1 million viewers, and NBC's "The Voice" with 14.2 million viewers.

The 44-year-old Boreanaz pulled in $58 million between 2012 and 2013, according to People with Money magazine, making him the highest paid actor in the world, MediaMass.net reported.

One of the reasons Boreanaz might be considering leaving "Bones" is the rumor that he is being considered to be the next James Bond.
