HIMYM - Season 8 - Abby Elliott gets a recurring role

SNL's loss is How I Met Your Mother's gain.

EW has learned exclusively that exiting Saturday Night Live cast member Abby Elliott has scored an arc on the upcoming season of HIMYM, which kicks off Monday, September 24.

Craig Thomas says : "We're thrilled to have the hilarious Abby Elliot joining us in an arc as Janeane, the craziest girl the HIMYM gang has ever encountered. And the strange, inexplicable phenomenon is : the crazier Janeane gets, the more attractive one of the gang finds her. It doesn't end well".

Elliott is best known for her work on the long-running sketch show, where her impressions of Zooey Deschanel and Rachael Maddow left a mark on audiences. Earlier this month, she announced that she was among the many familiar faces who would not appear in the new season of SNL (Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg and Paul Brittain also exited the show ; Jason Sudeikis's future on SNL is currently unknown). She had been there for 4 seasons (seasons 34-37, 2008-2012).

Abby Elliott’s father, Chris Elliott, also recurs on HIMYM, playing Lily's father, Mickey Aldrin.

Abby Elliott's first episode will air sometime in the new year.
