The Creators of How I Met Your Father Hints at the Key Role of Neil Patrick Harris

It is not the first time that someone from How I Met Your Mother starred in the spin-off series of How I Met Your Father. But Harris’ return is a little different from previous interventions. The makers of the series Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger hinted that fam-favorite Barney Stinson will play a key role in the second season of the series.

“Whenever we talk about bringing back a member of the original crew, you want it to serve two purposes: You want to give some tidbits about what is going on in their lives, where they’ve landed and where they’re at, but it’s also about how they impact the How I Met Your Father story, and how they send one of our characters in a new, unexpected direction. Similar to Robin last year, we’ll learn some more about where Barney’s at, but it’ll also have a major impact on the trajectory, and main narrative, of our season.”
