Neil Patrick Harris Hints How I Met Your Mother Will End After Season 8
From the sounds of things, NPH and the rest of the HIMYM crew are ready for a change.
Neil Patrick Harris opened up to Access Hollywood earlier this week about reports that CBS' How I Met Your Mother will continue for two more seasons.
"Our contracts end at [Season] 8, so it's one of those, you know, if they wanna do 9, they're welcome to, but we have a lot of other things [going on]," the actor explained. "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."
Added Harris, 39, "We are all anxious to move forward."
The star was candid about the only thing that might convince him and his costars to stick around: Bigger paydays.
"I think the only way . . . a season 9 or any longer would happen would be [if it were] financially right -- that's the reality of it," he admitted.
Still, the comedian, who plays Barney Stinson on the beloved sitcom, was adamant that the cast's eagerness to move on has nothing to do with any on set tensions.
"We love the show, we love doing it," Harris said. "Eight years is a long time and we're as happy a family as we've ever been."
