CBS has announced that it will renew How I Met Your Mother for a ninth, and final, season.
So finally, in 2014, one of the biggest TV questions is going to be answered! How did Ted (Josh Radner) meet the mother of his children?
For the past 8 seasons, Ted has been telling his kids dating stories which have all been leading up to the final reveal of how he met their mother. In the process of that, we have come to know and love his ‘other family’ – Lily (Alyson Hannigan), Marshall (Jason Segel), Barney (Neil Patrick Harris), and Robin (Cobie Smulders) (who, for a while, many thought could be the actual mum)
According to digitalspy.com, “CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler said of the renewal: “Through eight years, How I Met Your Mother has mastered the art of leading-edge comedy, emotional water-cooler moments and pop culture catchphrases. We are excited… to tell the final chapter and reveal television’s most mysterious mother to some of TV’s most passionate fans.”
As sad as it is to hear that the series is coming to an end (it has one of my favourite TV ensemble casts), I can’t wait to find out how Ted met the mother of his children – and who she is!
