How I Met Your Mother: Renewed for Season 9!

by 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 won't watch S9 if they don't reveal the Mother in S8E24 or E22(don't know how many eps they've got this season). I love the show but they have really took it over the edge!


No. I would not be okay with it. I'd rather some type of twist happen. Like Ted meets two women at the wedding, and we're left guessing which one is the mother throughout the season. I know that scenario is impossible, but my point is I'd like a twist, not a long haul of waiting.
