As 2016 seems to be an unendingly cruel mistress, another beloved TV parent has left us behind. Alan Thicke, actor behind Growing Pains patriarch Jason Seaver has passed away at age 69. The acclaimed sitcom star had only days earlier made a surprise cameo in the second season of Netflix’s Fuller House.
Back when we thought the current season of 'How I Met Your Mother' would be the show's last, we knew co-creators and show-runners Carter Bays and Craig Thomas would return a number of past stars and characters alike, notably Robin (Cobie Smulders)'s famed Canadian alter-ego Robin Sparkles! And while we've still got a ninth season to go, Robin Sparkles' return will also include a cavalcade of Canadian stars, including previous guests Alan Thicke and James Van Der Beek!
