CBS renews 'How I Met Your Mother' -- with full cast -- for season 9

CBS has renewed its veteran comedy, "How I Met Your Mother," for a somewhat surprising season 9. Fortunately for the continuity of the fairly serialized sitcom, all of the cast members -- including Jason Segel -- have agreed to return for at least one more year.

As first reported by Deadline.com, "HIMYM" is unofficially set for another season thanks to negotiations with the cast and producers working out positively for CBS. Cast deals were finalized just before a Friday (Dec. 21) deadline, despite rumors that Segel was unwilling to continue on the show.

Currently in the final year of contracts and the show's license deal with the network, the future of "How I Met Your Mother" always depended on the cooperation of those involved. The show's executive producers, Craig Thomas and Carter Bays, have been pushing for an early decision on renewal -- something necessary in a show that has to find the titular "mother" before the final episode.

Segel, who has begun a successful film career during the series' 8-year run, had reportedly been reluctantly to commit to a 9th year. Since the actor plays one half of a committed, happy couple, it would be tough to continue without him. Reports indicate that the rest of the cast's desire to continue may have influenced Jason Segel to re-sign.

I have to admit I have never seen one episode of this show. But yay for them for being gainfully employed a little longer.

A friend I grew up with is an actor on that show, “Michael”. I've only watched it a couple times though.

Right there with you, except I saw one episode with Britney Spears on a plane. It wasn't bad. But, hey, if they can maintain it for nine season, more power to them.

And more power to the show I do watch, "The Big Bang Theory" to try to outlast them. (I don't forsee anyone on that show breaking into big pictures any time soon. Not even Sheldon, whose popularity stems as much from the character as the person playing him.)

Yuk! Can’t stand that show. Sorry but the star being a queer and playing a straight just don’t do it for me. He would be better at playing a queer.
And, he just is not funny. The show might be better with another actor.

Need more comedies. Black or white, as long as they’re not corn-ball.

He’s not just playing a straight guy but a severe womanizer. Same here, just watched a couple of episodes but couldn’t get past that.

Severe womanizer—yes that’s what I trying to convey.

Wouldn’t turn my head to watch it if they filmed it in my backyard.

I do too, although I like Big Bang Theory better.

Neil Patrick Harris as Barney Stinson is the best part of the show IMO. Yea, the actor is gay IRL. Big deal, don’t care.

I am always suspicious of threads like this being more viral promotion than cultural observation.

homosexuals playing normal people is just not credible and distracts from the story.

"It's called acting, dear boy"

Are you going to not watch The Godfather just because real life Brando was bi?

Hadn't thought of that but given the posts supporting the show, I'd say that either you're correct or the teenage freepers are out in force tonight.

Just once, I’d like to be able to turn on the tv without having to look at gays.

there should be an “H” code for homosexual content. this would be for the use of the v-chip so people could just skip over all homosexual shows.

It would also be nice if tv had a way to bypass homosexual performers.

I have my remote control that works fine for skipping over all pro-homosexual shows.

Works well for skipping their looney Democrat agenda crap, too
