It’s official: HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER will return for a ninth and final season. According to CBS, the entire cast will return “for the final season when audiences will final learn the identity of the ‘Mother.’”
“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 in a statement. “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.”
“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,” said Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen of 20th Century Fox Television. “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.”
Just yesterday, Thomas and series star Cobie Smulders (Robin) participated in a conference call with reporters and expressed optimism that that show would continue on.
“We’d be surprised if the deal weren’t done shortly and if we didn’t have an announcement to make pretty soon,” Thomas said. “We feel confident about it.”
“It’s the greatest job on the planet, so it would be nice if it continued,” Smulders added. “We all love each other and want what’s best for everybody, and like I said, it’s an amazing job and it’s an amazing opportunity. So hopefully it all works out.”
And it did! Are you excited that HIMYM will get to wrap up its story next year?
