“How I Met Your Mother” just might be returning for a ninth season! Fans of the show can safely rejoice as it is looking good for a followup season to it’s eighth. Are you excited to see how they are able to wrap up the storylines if this turns out to be their final season?
Reportedly, the deal has yet to be closed, but negotiations are said to be heading in the right direction for the hit show. Insiders say that things are looking positive for fans to be able to learn of the outcomes of their favorite characters’ stories.
Jason Segel (Marshall) was said to be holding out to sign on the dotted line for a ninth season, but we’ve since heard that the entire cast has already agreed to do the new season — verbally. A source close to the show revealed, “Renewal is close and a formal announcement is expected after Christmas.”
Executive Producers Carter Bays and Craig Thomas said, “We kind of know what the endgame of the series is. It’s obvious this show is around one central question, so that meeting [of the mother] will be part of the endgame of the show. How much the show will go beyond that, we can’t really say one way or the other.”
We can imagine how hard it must be to write the new season if you are uncertain as to how much time it has left. The network should be fair to the show’s fans and allow its writers to clean up all of the storylines. What do you think?
