Neil Patrick Harris hints at `How I Met Your Mother` end

Los Angeles: Actor Neil Patrick Harris has hinted that the hit TV sitcom ‘How I Met Your Mother’ might come to an end after Season 8.

The show which is currently on its sixth season, started in 2005 and stars Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders and Alyson Hannigan, reported Us magazine.

"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.

"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. We are all anxious to move forward," Harris said.

The actor said the only thing that might convince him and his co-stars to stick around is 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 added.
