Referring to the news as "tension," Bobes made it known that he had a new show he was working on. The talent mentor wrote to fans:

"...It just describes what's going on. I have another show that I'm trying to figure out. Thanks for caring though guys…"

Leading up to Bones' post, ABC announced that co-judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie would return to the show. The announcement seemed to have exempted Bones, whose name was not mentioned.
