This marks the first time HIMYM will have expanded its core group of regulars beyond stars Josh Radnor, Alyson Hannigan, Neil Patrick Harris, Cobie Smulders and Jason Segel.

Series cocreator Carter Bays previously revealed that as HIMYM unspools its ninth and final season, viewers will become “much better” acquainted with Milioti’s bass-playing cutie as the show tells “the epic story of the longest wedding weekend ever.”

CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler later  confirmed to TVLine that Season 9′s entire run will, in fact, span the wedding weekend and just the wedding weekend, as the comedy details “how each character, before Ted, meets the mother. So, they each meet her independently before he does.”

    oh dear god. not sure how i feel about 20 odd episodes, that only take place ONLY over 3, maybe 4 days. Yikes.

    I think there should have flashbacks/flashforwards which will show us the mother at the moment that Ted has been saying “she has been there” a lot of times lately; like in his class, on the ways and other places so that it becomes more tangible Plus its end gonna be Legen. . . Wait for it . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .dary.
