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?
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?
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?
[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.”

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
