No need to wait for it anymore!

Just when it seemed like all hope for a 9th season was lost and fans were settling into the idea of season 8 being the last for How I Met Your Mother, a deal has been struck and the show will be returning for another season on CBS. The report confirms that Jason Segel was indeed planning on bailing on the show, but something happened in the 11th hour and Segel changed his mind. It’s safe to guess that something was a ridiculous amount of money, but no financial details have been reported. Apparently, the rest of the cast wanted to return to the show and once Segel was nabbed the deal was done, meaning all 5 of the stars will be returning.
