Jason Segel, aka Marshall has addressed recent rumors that he will be exiting the show after season eight wraps up as CBS recently announced that the show may go further with a ninth season.

In a recent interview with a Russian website, it was quoted that Jason stated that he wanted do more R-rated stuff again “because I’ve been playing the nice guy for quite a long time now. That’s why I’m gonna quit How I Met Your Mother after the eighth season.”" Another source also stated that Alyson Hannigan who plays his wife Lily , would also be most likely not to return, along with Jason for a ninth season.

But this has been corrected by no other, than Jason Segel himself who told TVGuide.com that “Perhaps something got lost in translation, but Season 9 hasn’t even been addressed yet,”.

So judging by this new info, it is still uncertain whether or not Jason would return for a ninth season.

Would you like to see Jason return for a ninth season? Do you even want the show to continue after it’s eigth season?

    I’m a huge HIMYM fan, its one of my favorite shows–but I don’t want to see it go on too long and outlast its creativity and freshness. Like Scrubs. They stayed on the air one(or two) seasons too long. I think eight seasons is perfect to wrap up all the story lines and say goodbye to the group. I’ll miss the show, but Id rather is leave on a high note.

    I agree, and also it’s never the same when one of the cast is gone,

    It wouldn’t be the same without Marshall… I hope he stays… As for the number of seasons… They should go beyond eight but not too much… I think the perfect number of seasons should be 10… :D
