Fans of How I Met Your Mother could be getting a late Christmas gift.

According to E! News, negotiations for a ninth season of the CBS comedy are looking good, with the cast verbally agreeing to return for another season of the hit show.

Contracts are reportedly in the process of being finalized, and chances are looking good despite rumors that Jason Segal was leaving the show after Season 8.

“Renewal is close and formal announcement is expected after Christmas,” a source said.

Let’s hope they make this ninth and possibly final season truly “legendary.”
