The Five Year Engagement actor was claimed to have said in an interview that he will leave the role of Marshall Eriksen after the upcoming eighth season, explaining that he had been "playing the nice guy for quite a long time now".
However, a representative for Segel has since dismissed the quotes and noted that it is not yet known whether How I Met Your Mother will even continue beyond season eight.
"Perhaps something got lost in translation, but Season 9 hasn't even been addressed yet," they said in a statement obtained by TV Guide.
Mother co-creator Craig Thomas commented on the uncertainty over the show's future recently, saying that producers are treating the eighth season as the final one while negotiations with CBS continue.
How I Met Your Mother's seventh season concluded in the US in May. The finale will air in the UK tonight (August 2) at 8.30pm on E4.
