Neil Patrick Harris Wants to Leave How I Met Your Mother

Friday, September 21, 2012

NEIL Patrick Harris is ready to wave goodbye to How I Met Your Mother.

The actor says he wants the comedy series to end after its current, eighth season, because he and the rest of the cast — which includes Cobie Smulders, Jason Segel, Josh Radnor and Alyson Hannigan — are ready for the show to reach its conclusion.

“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],” Neil said. |Cobie has got The Avengers that just made a billion dollars, Jason makes a ton of movies, I’m anxious to move East and Josh is directing and acting in movies as well. So, we all are anxious to move forward.

“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.”
