‘How I Met Your Mother’ season 8 spoilers: Guess who’s returning?

There’s some good news coming in for “How I Me Your Mother” fans — one of the biggest loose ends in the show’s history is about to be tied up.

According to a new report from TVLine, Michael Trucco is officially going to return for multiple episodes this coming season as the mythical “one that got away” for Robin. We first met the unnamed character back in season 6, when Ted pretty much did everything in his power to keep the two from going out. However, Narrator Ted also teased at the end of the episode that this story was not over, and we would be hearing from this guy again at some point later on in the story.

Getting Trucco to turn up again on the show actually ended up being rather complicated. Thanks to his commitments on “Fairly Legal,” the actor was unable to do more than one episode in season 6, and was completely off the radar last year. The fact that he is on the show now is great news, but many fans of the USA show probably do not feel the same way. Does this mean that Trucco is going to be losing his day job soon? No word has been announced yet on “Fairly Legal” season 3, but the show did not really draw much attention when it came to headlines on Friday nights this year. Then again, there may be no reason to freak out here at all — Trucco may just be filming his arc here in what was his pre-designated time off, and he could go back to his other show once its fate is revealed.

We ultimately know courtesy of the season 7 finale that Robin and Barney end up getting married, so this relationship is probably not going to end well — even with that being said, though, are you glad to see that Trucco is finally coming back on this show?
