Its been a long eight seasons of wondering about the Mother in How I Met Your Mother, and finally last night (May 13) fans caught a glimpse of the fabled woman.
Played by Cristin Milioti, the infamous lady showed up at a train station with her yellow umbrella to buy a ticket to Barney and Robins wedding.
Milioti declares, One ticket to Farhampton, in the final moments of the season finale, offering the very first look at Teds future bride.
Co-creator/executive producer Carter Bays explained, “It was a pretty big umbrella to fill, casting the title role in a series that”s been on the air for eight years. And yet Cristin Milioti is, against all odds, exactly what we were looking for. She made us laugh on 30 Rock, she made us swoon in Once, and her ukulele skills are no joke.
“We”re thrilled to welcome her to the How I Met Your Mother family, and look forward to getting to know her – and the character she plays – much better in the coming final season. And to all the fans, on behalf of all of us writers, cast and crew: Thank you for sticking with us on this wild journey. Our ninth season will tell the epic story of the longest wedding weekend ever. We hope you like it. Next stop, Farhampton.”
