How I Met Your Mother also appears to be nearing the reveal of the mother of Ted's (Josh Radnor) children, which has been a long-running mystery throughout the course of the show.

CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler said of the renewal: "Through eight years, How I Met Your Mother has mastered the art of leading-edge comedy, emotional water-cooler moments and pop culture catchphrases.

"We are excited... to tell the final chapter and reveal television's most mysterious mother to some of TV's most passionate fans."

How I Met Your Mother was apparently saved from ending this season by Jason Segel's willingness to return for additional episodes.
