The end of an era struck TV viewers on March 31 with the shocking and emotional ‘How I Met Your Mother’ series finale. How will Monday nights go on? Well, there’s hope for a cast reunion in the ‘HIMYM’ spinoff!
Last night’s final episode of How I Met Your Mother was polarizing to longtime fans, but there’s one thing that all HIMYM enthusiasts can agree on: a cast reunion would be simply legen — wait for it — dary. There’s no set premiere date for How I Met Your Dad (we’re still crying over last night’s finale!) but star Alyson Hannigan is speaking out on showing up for the spinoff!
‘HIMYM’ Reunion: Will The Cast Reunite on ‘How I Met Your Dad’?
The world said goodbye to Ted (Josh Radnor), Marshall (Jason Segel), Robin (Cobie Smulders), Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and Lily (Alyson Hannigan) in last night’s March 31 series finale, but will they be back for more?
The successful sitcom ran for nine years and nine seasons, and the franchise is not over yet! HIMYM creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are bringing spinoff How I Met Your Dad to the small screen, and Alyson Hannigan may just stop by the set!
“Sure,” she said when asked by PopSugar if she’d want to come on the spinoff for a guest appearance. Alyson also told the site that she was sad about the series coming to an end. “Although I really know very little. I think that it’s just going to be a completely different group and totally different. I don’t know. I found out [about the spinoff] just by reading on the internet. I don’t think it’s a traditional spinoff where one character is leading it.”
Now we know for a fact that none of the original HIMYM-ers will be series regulars, there’s still hope — maybe even just for a group cameo appearance!
“I know nothing about the spinoff. But Carter [Bays], I think had been pretty adamant that he doesn’t want us to have anything to do with it,” Alyson told IGN with a very disappointed face. But there’s hope! “I’m just going to be an extra.”
HollywoodLifers, would you want to see Alyson and her HIMYM cast members appear on the How I Met Your Father spinoff?
