Bones has officially been renewed for a 10th season by Fox, the network announced on Wednesday.

And that wasn't the only good news Fox had in store for fans of David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel's long-running drama: it's moving back to Monday night! Beginning March 10, Bones will return to its old timeslot, Monday at 8 p.m. Kitchen Nightmares is set to take over Bones' current timeslot, Fridays at 8 p.m., on Friday, Feb. 28.

"10 is it," Boreanaz tweeted of the good news. "Bring the magic and bring the love for @BONESonFOX . #Back"

"Over the course of nine seasons, Bones has grown from a hit crime procedural into a beloved pillar of our lineup that resonates with fans in a way that only the best of shows can," Fox president  Kevin Reilly said in a statement. "Our viewers have embraced Emily, David and the entire cast and characters of Bones as their very own, and I think they are going to love what Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan have planned for Season 10!"

At the 2014 Winter TCA Press Tour, earlier this month, Reilly hinted at Bones' pick up, adding that longtime executive producer Stephen Nathan would be stepping in as showrunner for creator Hart Hanson, who will focus on his new project for the network, Backstrom, which stars The Office's Rainn Wilson.

Nathan took to Twitter to celebrate Bones' renewal, writing, "Season 10 is a fact. And we'll be back on Monday night in March!"

Bones currently airs Fridays at 8 p.m. on Fox.
