‘How I Met Your Mother’ Renewed For a Legen… dary Season 9? – REPORT

HIMYM Renewed For Season 9

Perhaps it was time for another one of the How I Met Your Mother gang’s classic interventions, because after reports that Jason Segel, who plays Marshall on the show, might be through with sitcom life started circulating, it looked like life at McClaren’s could be coming to an end. But fear not HIMYM die-hards, the future may not be so grim after all.

After Deadline reported that the gang, including Segel, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris, Josh Radnor, and Alyson Hannigan, would be back for a ninth year of Manhattan antics, the internet rejoiced. However, Hollywood.com has learned that renewal for the veteran CBS series is not yet official, though an announcement is expected some time after Christmas.

The worry over Season 9 stemmed from Segel’s potential to quit the series now that his film career has taken off, and of course the McClaren’s group without Marshall just isn’t the same. With Segel back in, the show can go on.

And while the horizon looks pretty clear, renewal is not yet official. So for now, let’s wait to suit up, throw back a few regular ol’ brewskis, and let the holidays wash over us. And when the news becomes official, we’ll all be able to make our requisite celebrations legen… wait for it…dary.

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.
