How I Met Your Mother: Renewed for Season 9!

at . Comments

It is finally official: CBS has picked up How I Met Your Mother Season 9.

Following a round of extensive negotiations - which reportedly included Jason Segel changing his mind and coming on board at the last moment - the full cast and creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas have signed on for the 2013-2014 season.

It will mark the show's concluding run.

How I Met Your Mother Celebration

"Through eight years, How I Met Your Mother has mastered the art of leading-edge comedy, emotional water-cooler moments and pop culture catch-phrases,” said Nina Tassler, President, CBS Entertainment. “We are excited for Carter, Craig, Pam Fryman and this amazing cast to tell the final chapter and reveal television’s most mysterious mother to some of TV’s most passionate fans.”

Adds Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen of 20th Century Fox Television:

"We‘re thrilled to have the entire and incredibly talented How I Met Your Mother cast back for one final season to bring the series to a proper close. Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are masterful and hilarious storytellers, and we have no doubt that they will guide one of the greatest comedies of the last decade to a gratifying conclusion when they finally reveal the identity of the Mother.”

Does that mean we won't learn the identity of the Mother until the very last episode? And, if that's the case, would you be okay with it?

i love this show its awsome and i do hope to see themother this season and let it carry on through the finle season


I dont see the point of people saying they dont care about the show, saying that its lame, boring and waste of time. Still they're here reading the article and wasting more time by posting comments. Just ridiculous.
So thrilled for the next season! Im definitely gonna miss this show!


I agree with Finn, your presumption did make sense, but I really like the show, I never wan it to end, cause it teach me a lot of stuff I couldn't learn from any other TV shows, like Robin's way of life being strong no matter what, The couple's "love triumphs winning", Teddy Westside's innocent and humour, Barney's talents... all of which makes the show a textbook material for young adults to awesome their life.


No, I would hate it if we have to wait the final episode of the show to know who the mother is It's already irritating that the show isn't really focusing on that anymore.
Most of my friends pretty stopped watching a long time ago and seriously I start to believe I should have done it too but I'm too freaking curious.
If at the end of this season it's not revealed I'm not going to watch the last season, I'll just go see the final when it's out I've lost enough time with that s***.
And I'm happy it's soon the end because it became pretty boring.


NO, NO, NOOOO! I really wanted this show to end before I acctually start hating it. I loved HIMYM from the beginning but the previous season and this one have been so disappointing in so many ways. That kind of overshadowed my admiration for the good seasons. The storylines feel repetitive and forced on so many levels and they are just spinning around in circle. And I hope that we don't meet the mother in the last episode of season 9. That would be very very lame. Anyway, I find myself constantly loosing my interest in this show.

Never have I liked a show so much and wished so desperately that it would end... my thoughts exactly! the show has lost it, just be done and i totally agree with all the comments. it should just focus on ted n wife n gang no one else and then bring it to 2030 and explain how we got to the show being the show......


The next season should be about the mother, Ted, the gang... and the childs (with the girl from Nikita) all grow up in present day. But it won't..


Old news we knew these already


Never have I liked a show so much and wished so desperately that it would end...


I really hope they'll show the mother at the end of this season and season 9 will be about how Ted wins her over. I don't want to wait yet another season.
