It looks like "How I Met Your Mother" fans will have to wait a little longer to find out the identity of the show's titular matriarch.
According to Deadline, "How I Met Your Mother" has been renewed and will return for a ninth season, after all five stars reportedly signed on for another year following weeks of contract negotiations.
CBS could not confirm the report.
The future of the series was in question after rumors surfaced that Jason Segel (arguably the show's most successful star thanks to his steady film career) was done with the show, while the other leads were open to continuing. Deadline reports that the actor "decided to bail and leave the cast hangung [sic]. But he just got turned around today at the last second.”
