howimetyourmother-031109CBS has ordered four additional scripts for its comedy series How I Met Your Mother, a very positive first sign towards the likeilhood of the show receiving a renewal for next season.

The scripts are for the 2009-10 season and will give the show’s producers an opportunity to get a head start on the fifth season.  So yeah, it’s extremely likely that the show is coming back for another season.
