‘HIMYM’ Officially Renewed: We Will Meet the Mother… in the 9th and Final Season

How I Met Your Mother gets a ninth and final season

It’s time for a little legen…DARY news. Right in line with the continuing chatter about the future of beloved CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother, CBS has officially announced that the series will, in fact, return for a final, ninth season. And yes, die-hard HIMYM-ers, that means there’ll be no further speculation: we will finally (thankfully) meet “The Mother” we’ve been waiting eight years for.

Despite worries about stars like Jason Segel flying the well-worn coop for bigger and brighter opportunities in Hollywood, the entire cast, including Segel, Neil Patrick Harris, Alyson Hannigan, Cobie Smulders, and Josh Radnor, will continue palling around over beers at McClaren’s. And with a pretty new face added to the mix.

Fans were disappointed last week when the long-running theory that Barney’s (Harris) sister was the fabled future betrothed of Radnor’s Ted was squashed (we met Barney’s sister, but we haven’t met the mother, so that theory doesn’t quite hold water any more). And while many fans have speculated that the future Mrs. Mosby will finally reveal her nine-year-saga-inspiring face in the Season 8 finale, that was before a ninth season was certain. Get ready folks, it’s possible that there will be an entire summer between us and the big reveal and if they’re really serious about it, a summer and 22 episodes.

But hey, it will happen, and it won’t be rushed! That’s good news, right? After eight years, we’re definitely hoping to slow this big reveal down just a little more, right?

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
