How I Met Your Mother - Season 9 - Carter Bays' Interview with Paste Magazine

Paste: What does it feel like now that you are filming the final season?
Bays:
It feels like the movie The Great Escape where we’ve been digging our tunnels and fashioning things out of stove pipes and making our fake passports and now this season we’re breaking out. This is it.

Paste: What can we expect of this season?
Bays:
We’re sort of going to be alternating between crazy silliness and “hey it’s great to see that guest star again” and the highest high drama we’ve done on the show. It’s a very operatic season I think—highs and lows.

We have really exciting stuff to write about right now. We’ve never been in a place where it’s July and we’ve plotted out the entire season, but we have this year because there’s so much exciting stuff.

The mother is involved from day one, which is fun. We’re really going into this season knowing this is our last shot at it and I think what we don’t want to do is leave anything unsaid. So we’re trying to say everything. One last smorgasbord of anything you could possibly want to see on the show, you’re going to get to see this year.

Paste: How did you come to cast Cristin Milioti in the long-awaited title role of the Mother?
Bays:
[Co-creator and executive producer] Craig [Thomas] saw her in Once on Broadway. I had seen her in an episode of 30 Rock and loved it. So from two different directions, we both kind of knew of this really talented performer. Our casting agent had a secret file of “if they ever ask me to cast the mother, here’s my list” and Cristin was at the top of the list.

Much like finding the actual love of one’s life, there was just an x-factor there. There was no real checklist. Cristin just kind of brought something. We couldn’t have created her on paper but when she showed up it was, “Yeah of course that’s who Ted ends up with.”
