CBS has officially announced that How I Met Your Mother has been picked up for a 9th and final season to air in 2013-2014.
Just a few things fans can look forward to in the final season:
– FINALLY meeting Ted’s wife.
– Return of entire main cast:Â Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris and Alyson Hannigan, as well as creators Craig Thomas and Carter Bays.
– Bob Saget continues as narrator.
In the meantime, Season 8 is rumored to bring about Robin and Barney’s wedding, a possible return of Robin Sparkles, and a continuation of the slap bet– which is NOT over.
I really think they could have squeezed all of the above into Season 8. It doesn’t really make sense to stretch the series out into 2014. As it is, the show has lost a lot of momentum with the taffy pulling they’ve done already. I’m shocked that the show has lasted this long. Truthfully, I think the only reason it’s still around is because we haven’t met the woman that the very title refers to. Don’t get me wrong– I love this show. But it’s nice to know the all the anticipation has built towards something,Â and that that something is coming soon.
Until next time….
