Neil Patrick Harris on the Possibility of Another Season of ‘How I Met Your Mother’: If it were “financially right—that’s the reality of it”

How-I-Met-Your-Mother-Neil-Patrick-HarrisHow I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris has revealed that the upcoming new season might be the show’s last.

“Our contracts end at [season] eight, so it’s one of those , you know, if they wanna do nine, they’re welcome to, but we have a lot of other things [going on],” Patrick said, as reported by Yahoo! News.  “Cobie [Smulders] has got The Avengers that just made a billion dollars, Jason [Segel] makes a ton of movies, I’m anxious to move East and Josh [Radnor] is directing and acting in movies as well.  So, we all are anxious to move forward.”

Most TV insiders believed the show would go through season nine, but Harris said, “I think the only way I think a season nine or any longer would happen would be [if it were] financially right—that’s the reality of it.  We love the show, we love doing it—eight years is a long time and we’re as happy a family as we’ve ever been.”

The new season of HIMYM starts Monday, September 24.
