Barney's Strip Club Circuit

Rumors about the future of the series has been running rampant for weeks because the contracts of creators Craig Thomas and Carter Bays and all the key How I Met Your Mother cast members are up after this season.

The producers had been pushing for an answer from CBS in order to plot out the rest of the show, which is finally building toward the Mother reveal.

Now, with his fellow stars on board, Segel has decided to sign on for one final run of episodes.

As for the next chapter of How I Met Your Mother Season 8? Bays has teased that it will have a lot to do with Barney and Robin and their future as an engaged couple.

Yes !!!!! Best news ever !!
I really don't care to know who the mother is, what's important is the journey Ted has to go through to meet his wife.

I definitely see where everyone is coming from about How I Met Your Mother needing to be ended. However, I'm glad there will be a season 9--probably. Hopefully, instead of just seeing a random actress and having that be the mother, we will actually get to see some of her and Ted's relationship. Otherwise, what had this all been for? :)

I thinl it's getting boring becaude it's time they show who the mother is. It's taken long enough and it's going to risk getting cancelled again if they don't shoe who the mother is.

Okay I really do love this show, but I think its time had come. Everything has been dragged out for soo long and its time to just finally show us how this will end and meet the mother. I will continue watching this show because it's amazing and I love Barney and Robin as a couple, but I mean come on, let's just stop the slow trudging on and end it with a bang.

Another season. Good...I'm glad the writers have more time so that they don't feel rushed to tell the story that's taken 8 years so far...(sarcasm) I love the show, but I don't know about another season.
