"How I Met Your Mother" Season 8 will tackle some very important questions for fans of the series: What happens next to Ted and Victoria? Will Barney and Robin push through with that wedding, or does he get to run away only to come back for a simpler ceremony? (Remember Mr. Big and Carrie on "Sex and the City?")
Actress Cobie Smulders from "How I Met Your Mother" arrives at the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles September 18, 2011.
Josh Radnor, the actor who plays Ted Mosby, said something about the final act of last season's finale, showing Ted and Victoria (Ashley William) driving into the sunset. He told E! News:
"Victoria left her German fiancé, Klaus, at the alter, hopped in my car, and we're riding off into the sunset. Of course, because this is How I Met Your Mother, that's not really the end of the story ... Some other things happen. Some other complications [arise] from that. Because, I'll just say this, Ted was left at the altar by a girl named Stella [guest star Sarah Chalke] and so it starts to weigh on him. So that's where the drama spins out of. From that."
Not meant to be, Victoria, Quinn
How I Met Your Mother co-creator Carter Bays has said in May that Ted is now in a place where he is ready for a new chapter. Obviously, as mentioned in Season 1, Victoria is not the much-awaited 'mother' in the series. Before Ted's new chapter unfolds, Ted will have to break up with Victoria.
Ted is not the only one who would suffer a bad heartbreak next season. Quinn (Becki Newton) would also have to go.
As creators and show runners of the hit CBS sitcom, Bays and Craig Thomas have mentioned in previous interviews that it was always going to be Robin (Cobie Smulders) and Barney (Neil Patrick Harris). Despite Barney's engagement to Quinn, fans know it will not lead to the altar. The question is: Where will Barney's feelings for Robin lead?
As for new parents Marshall (Jason Segel) and Lily (Alyson Hannigan), they will begin to dive deeper into parenthood. Taking their friends along for the ride, the only married characters in the group will discover why parenting's not a piece of cake.
"How I Met Your Mother" Season 8 premiere will air in U.S. television via CBS on September 24.
