How I Met Your Mother‘s wedding-set final season is, fittingly, turning out to be a family affair.
Wayne Brady will return to the CBS comedy in a recurring capacity as Barney’s brother James in Season 9, TVLine has confirmed.
The actor announced his news via Twitter on Monday.
Just got back from my 1st HIMYM fitting of the season! Can't wait to shoot on Wed! You may be seeing a little more "James" this season! Yes!—

James’ reappearance — he was last seen in a 2011 episode — isn’t a complete surprise, seeing as how the show’s upcoming swan song takes place during the weekend of Barney’s nuptials to Robin.
Brady next stars in The CW’s Whose Line Is It Anyway? revival.
