Following this week's big reveal of the mother on How I Met Your Mother, CBS has announced even more big news about the show. Entertainment president Nina Tassler has divulged that next season — the series's final one — will exclusively span the 56 hours leading up to Barney and Robin's wedding. Over the course of that time, each character will get to meet the mother, all culminating in Ted's eventual meeting with her.
Real talk: I'm bummed. Minus the progression of Barney and Robin's relationship, the last few seasons of the show have felt like filler. Finally we get to meet the mother, but after spending almost a decade watching Ted search for her, we're not even going to see their courtship! Maybe I'm overreacting. What are your thoughts?
