The President of CBS revealed some surprising information about how the ninth and final season of How I Met Your Mother will play out this, so, needless to say, if you don’t want recent/future stuff spoiled, stop reading this now. Last week’s Season 8 finale featured the audience finally catching a glimpse of the titular mother, played by Cristin Milioti (Sleepwalk with Me), but she didn’t end up actually meeting Ted. Co-creator Carter Bays previously said the final season will tell “the epic story of the longest wedding weekend ever,” and CBS boss Nina Tassler confirmed to TV Line today that the entire 24-episode season will take place over one 56-hour weekend. Tassler says the season will show “how each character, before Ted, meets the mother. So, they each meet her independently before he does.” At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if Ted doesn’t meet the mother until the last 3 seconds of the series finale.
