‘How I Met Your Mother’ Season 8 Reveals Premiere Title, Synopsis
Admittedly its been an eternity since ‘How I Met Your Mother‘s Ted Mosby even started his convoluted story, let alone the wait between season 7′s “The Magician’s Code,” but we’re slowly plodding along toward the ‘How I Met Your Mother’ season 8 premiere, now revealed to be “Farhampton!” But now that the first official episode description has leaked, what does the future hold for ‘How I Met Your Mother?’
CBS has released the first official press release for ‘How I Met Your Mother’ season 8, in it detailing the September 24th premiere effort “Farhampton!” We last left ‘How I Met Your Mother’ with quite a few questions, such as how Ted would justify driving off into the sunset with Victoria (Ashley Williams) on her wedding day, having been left at the altar himself, and most importantly how Robin would come to be Barney’s bride in the future!
We’d already known that ‘Reno 911!’ actor Thomas Lennon would appear in the premiere as Klaus, the man Victoria left at the altar for Ted, but the press release details that we’ll also see the return of Michael Trucco‘s previously unnamed character Nick as Robin’s boyfriend. A substantial amount of the episode will take place at the future wedding, as Robin finds herself with wedding-day jitters. From the official release:
