Time to close the book and end the story kids.
CBS has announced that How I Met Your Mother has been picked up for one more final year. The upcoming ninth season of the half hour comedy will unfortunately be its last year.
All current series regulars have signed on for the upcoming fall season. Also, details have been released that the identity of the mother, which has been the central mystery and premise of the series, will FINALLY be revealed before the end of the final season. No word yet if the identity will be revealed this current season or sometime during the 2013-2014 season.
I've only started watching the show within the last year or so and I've really enjoyed the episodes I have seen. Many fans have expressed that the show hasn't been the best in the most recent seasons. Though, the upside could be that since a finale is now set to air next year, all remaining storylines and twists can be introduced to the viewers before a series finale.
Are you sad to see the show go? Sound off in the comments and share your thoughts about the renewal and cancellation news.
