SpoilerTV - TV Spoilers

HOT NOW :

When CBS announced that How I Met Your Mother would return for a ninth and final season next year, the network took the unusual extra step of proclaiming that the show's heretofore unseen "mother" would be also finally be revealed.

HIMYM co-creator Craig Thomas (who says he wasn't consulted on that part of the release) admits he was surprised that CBS felt the need to spell it out. "The plan has always been to meet this girl at some point," he says. "I think we would be forbidden from show business if we ended the series without meeting the mother, and rightfully so. They want to make sure, I guess, that the audience knows they're not going to be jerked around or short changed in any way."

Thomas won't divulge whether the extra year altered plans on how HIMYM would introduce the mother: "That's one of the few remaining tricks up our sleeves." But he promises next year will look and feel much differhttp://www.youtube.com/?tab=j1&authuser=0ent from past seasons: "It's going to be a new way to tell the story," he says. "You're never going to mistake a Season 9 episode from one of the previous eight."

The show's producers have put together a bucket list of plotlines that they want HIMYM to tackle before the end. "There are a lot of loose ends and references and setups that we have to pay off," Thomas says. One item they just took care of: A final "Robin Sparkles" installment, which Thomas admits he would have held for next year had he known for sure that HIMYM was coming back.

But there are still many more stories to tell. "This is the final lap, so there's no more withholding of fun ideas," he says. "There's something very carpe diem about it. We're going for it and looking to not leave anything on the field. I hope that means these remaining episodes will be great."
