Media Decoder Blog: Answer in Sight for ‘How I Met Your Mother’

It will take, in total, nine years, but yes, there will be an answer to “How I Met Your Mother” — and it will be revealed in spring 2014.

That’s because all the show’s key players, from its cast members, including Jason Segel, Neal Patrick Harris and Josh Radnor, to its creators, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, agreed to a new deal on Wednesday with CBS and the production studio 20th Century Fox Television. The agreement will bring the comedy to a close after one more season.

“HIMYM,” as the show is known, continues to be one of the top-rated comedies on television this season, averaging almost 10 million viewers — when delayed viewing is included.

The series has managed to survive despite a premise that teased viewers into wondering whether it would ever introduce the character who would be the mother of the two children in the show. They were first introduced in 2005, supposedly listening to their father in 2030 recounting his many romantic encounters until he met and married their mother.

The producers even took the precaution of shooting, several years ago, the final scene with the two actors who have played the children, David Henrie and Lyndsy Fonseca, so they would not be near adulthood when the series ended.
