How I Met Your Mother ScoopHow I Met Your Mother: Scoop on season 8 from Entertainment Weekly’s Sandra Gonzalez


Here’s some scoop on How I Met Your Mother from Entertainment Weekly’s Sandra Gonzalez’s The Spoiler Room column for the week of 8/3/12.




Here’s the deal: When your friends become parents, things change. Period. We saw this begin last season on How I Met Your Mother. (Remember, “Is this an 8 or higher?”) I’ve gone through it. Some of y’all have probably gone through it. And executive producer Craig Thomas says he’s gone through it. So how will the gang cope with their ever-changing universe? That’s part of the fun coming up in season 8 of HIMYM (pronounced: “him-yim”).


“You’ll see the group deal with that issue [with Marshall and Lily] of ‘I feel like we can’t come to you with our stuff anymore because you have this whole bigger problem of being parents. But I still want to be friends. I still want to bring my stuff to you,’” says Thomas. Other big issues? Lily will start to wrestle with some big questions of her own — like whether or not she wants a career and who can babysit (Robin…?).. “There’s something really nice about seeing this adorable little baby and seeing what I think is TV’s best couple become TV’s best parents,” he adds.


Meanwhile, in case you missed it, earlier this week I teased a Neil Patrick Harris “tour de force” that will find him delving into his deepest fears as he crafts a prenup, I crushed a weird foreign-born rumor about Jason Segel’s future on the show, and rejoiced with the rest of y’all about news that Joe Manganiello is returning for an arc! Read all about it here.
