'How I Met Your Mother:' 9th season renewal any minute now
Some show's futures are almost as interesting as their content, and “How I Met Your Mother” qualifies, or at least a little bit.
Fans have long been wondering -- is this ride over in a few months, with Barney and Robin (probably) married, and closure -- as well as a final answer as to how the heck Ted really did meet the mother of his children -- forthcoming? But no closure just yet.
Co-creator Craig Thomas told reporters on a conference call Tuesday that a ninth season will almost certainly happen. “A deal like this is a big deal, and we don't want to get ahead of ourselves. But we'd be surprised if a deal weren't done shortly and we didn't have an announcement to make pretty soon. So we feel confident about it, but we're still waiting.”
Go here to Zap2it for more details, but, about that wedding, it will happen, per Thomas.
