We May Have To Wait ONE More Year To Find Out How I Met Your Mother!

how i met your mother contract negotiations new season

Looks like they're going to try and shoot for Friends territory here!

Not that we blame them…especially after last season's ratings!

That's right, How I Met Your Mother will be back for its eighth season come fall, but after the long-running sitcom had a surprising boost in viewership during last season - 8.5 million, to be exact - execs at CBS and 20th Century Fox have reportedly started tentative negotiations to renew it for a NINTH year!

But will the talent want to stick around past the 2012-2013 season?

Jason Segel has already stated to the press that he's not interested continuing on with the show after this year, and given the entire crux of it all is dependent on, as the title suggests, how Josh Radnor's character meets his future children's mother, the writers are apparently waiting to get the go-ahead from the studio before they start crafting the conclusion of that storyline!

And they certainly need a pretty solid head's up way in advance, depending on if it's ending this year or the following!

Sounds like there's A LOT to work out before any decisions are made!

It will certainly be inneresting to see if these negotiations go anywhere!

What do U think?? Should How I Met Your Mother end after this year or should it keep going??

    It's interesting how they posed the actors for this photo, with Cobie in a pink dress and over to the side posing differently than everyone else and Neil leaning against the light while the others are all lined up in similar dark colors. Those two are clearly the stars of the show now.

    the show should have ended this season. It is just getting dragged on… and on…

    I can't believe that people are still watching this show. I stopped caring who the "Mother" was several years ago. The writing is no longer clever just plain stupid. Put the show out of it's misery.

    It should have ended two seasons ago…

    Hmmmm 3 haters but yet they still 8.5 million people watching so obviously there's very few people that think the same way. Most people watch the show becuz it's funny, not just to find out who the mother is

    - But Segel assured fans that he is definitely on board should HIMYM get more seasons: "I really agree that I'd like to see the story come to its natural end, whether it's eight years or nine years," he told reporters in January. "I was so relieved when I found out there was an actual plan!"-

    You ARE a lousy journalism, aren't you??

    I LOVE HIMYM, but I definitely think that the 8th season would be a perfect end. I feel like everything is starting to come together. As for Jason Segel saying he won't be coming back if it continues into a 9th season, the show would not be the same without him. Maybe in JANUARY he said he wanted to continue, but he IS allowed to change his mind.
