As the latest way to promote “How I Met Your Mother’s” upcoming eighth season, a good many of the show’s cast members (along with executive producers Craig Thomas and Pamela Fryman) all sat down to talk about a little bit of everything in a new video.
First things first, Thomas talked about how this season is in many ways a reflection on where so many of these actors are in their real lives now. Alyson Hannigan is a mom in real life, and Lily is now, as well. Meanwhile, we are finally seeing Barney mature just as Neil Patrick Harris is in real life. Ultimately, the goal for this season is rather simple when it comes to this character: showing his progression from being with Quinn to getting engaged and eventually married to Robin. This wedding is supposedly going to be the season finale, but this could end up changing depending on whether or not the show gets picked up for a ninth and final season.
As for the other characters, Robin and Ted are each going to have to find their way out of relationships that are ultimately not right for them at the end of the day, even though they do want them to work out at the time the new season starts on Monday, September 27. Be sure to keep checking back before that air date, though, as we are going to continue to have more from the show including spoilers, episode titles, and interview snippets. This could be the year that Ted finally meets “the one,” and we’re going to be here every step of the way.
