It’s official, fans will finally meet the mother of Ted Mosby’s children in the ninth and final season of the CBS hit How I Met Your Mother.
According to Vulture, HIMYM co-creator Craig Thomas confirmed the news during a conference call Tuesday with a CBS press release also confirming the news.
The long-running series return was questionable after actor Jason Segal expressed his desire to move on. However, once the group all agreed that they wanted to go forward with a final season to piece the story together, Segal agreed.
The series, which stars Segal, Josh Rador, Alyson Hannigan, Neil Patrick Harris and Cobie Smolders, was speculated to be confirmed for a final season, as we previously reported in December.
“We‘re thrilled to have the entire and incredibly talented HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER cast back for one final season to bring the series to a proper close. Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are masterful and hilarious storytellers, and we have no doubt that they will guide one of the greatest comedies of the last decade to a gratifying conclusion when they finally reveal the identity of the Mother,” Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen of 20th Century Fox Television exclaimed in a press release.
How I Met Your Mother will return fall 2013.
