‘How I Met Your Mother’ Renewed for a Ninth and Final Season


It looks like long-running CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother is finally coming to a close… a year and a half from now. The network announced today that they’ve worked out a deal to bring all of the cast and crew back for a final ninth season that’ll run from 2013-14, during which CBS confirms that audiences will finally learn of the titular mother’s identity. This current season will still include Robin and Barney’s wedding in May - the event where Ted meets his mystery wife - but viewers will not see all of the wedding. The press release implies that viewers won’t get to see Ted meet his kids’ mother until at least the ninth season’s premiere in the fall… unless that doesn’t happen and this has all just been a nine-year prank by CBS.
