Betty White Will Be the Best Squintern on Bones‘ Newest Season

Wanted to let you know first that I will be joining the Bones family for an upcoming episode this fall! #Bones

Posted by Betty White on Thursday, August 27, 2015

Just yesterday, Betty White took to her Facebook page to share that she’d be joining Bones‘ upcoming 11th season. She’ll be playing a “squintern,” which (in case you didn’t know) is the term for an intern who works under Dr. Brennan, the show’s protagonist.

White will be playing Dr. Beth Mayer, who’s brought on to assist with a murder linked to fantasy football. Which, if you’d look at my latest fantasy draft, you’d know is a thing that totally happens. She’s apparently an amazing forensic anthropologist, so there’s sure to be some great Dr. House-ian competition going on here.

Though, let’s be honest with ourselves: it’s Betty White. Who doesn’t get along with Betty White?
