Series regulars Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris and Alyson Hannigan are all onboard for the final season.
Announcing the renewal of the series for season nine, CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler stated: “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. 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.”
Created by Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, How I Met Your Mother has thus far earned 24 Emmy nominations (winning six) and two Golden Globe nominations. The series has been one of CBS’ highest ratings-grabbers and is averaging 9.75 million viewers over its eighth season.
“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.”
