TVLine reports that Cristin Milioti, who was revealed to be the titular mother in Monday's (May 13) season finale, will be a part of the show as a series regular. This is the first time in the show's near-decade run that the core cast has been expanded beyond Josh Radnor, Alyson Hannigan, Neil Patrick Harris, Cobie Smulders and Jason Segel.
CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler revealed to TVLine that the entirety of Season 9 will span Robin and Barney's weekend and only the weeding weekend, with the show focusing on "how each character, before Ted, meets the mother. So they each meet her independently before he does."

Sometime's a girl just has to get away...from her stalkers.
Celebrity stalker magnet Taylor Swift was trying to do just that when a Chicago man reportedly swam the singer's Rhode Island beach home in an attempt to meet her.
Lucas Vorsteveld, 22, was arrested around 2 a.m. Thursday after making a round-trip swim from roughly a mile away from Swift's private beach, to her property and back, TMZ reports.
Wgn reports Vorsteveld was quickly nabbed by Swift's security team after he was seen emerging from the water and walking up to the star's sprawling beach front home. The Chicago man reportedly told security he was "just out for a walk" and was also planning to meet the singer.
Vorsteveld was taken into custody and booked on trespassing charges. The Westerly Police Department told TMZ, "There is a zero tolerance policy for trespassers."

Hannigan, who played sidekick-turned-witch Willow Rosenberg, appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday, May 8, and revealed behind-the-scenes secrets about the show while playing "Plead the Fifth" with host Andy Cohen.

Monday night will be the anticipated Season 8 finale of the CBS hit show, How I Met Your Mother.
The season has surrounded the lead up to Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and Robin (Cobie Smulders) getting married, with the last few episodes involving Barney’s bachelor party and Robin pouring her soul to Ted on having doubts about the wedding.
The wedding is a very key part of the series, because as we have found out through older Ted (narrated by Bob Saget) in his story to his children, he finally meets the mother while she’s playing in the band.
This past week, Alyson Hannigan, who plays Lilly on the show, appeared on “The Late Show” with David Letterman, and dropped a potentially big hint as to when we may find out the identity of the mother.
“I had always thought that the last shot of the whole series was the reveal of the mother. »

Alyson Hannigan stopped by "Watch What Happens Live" on Bravo Wednesday night (May 8), where she participated in Andy Cohen's "Plead the Fifth" segment -- though Hannigan did not plead the Fifth to any questions.
Cohen: "Who was the most annoyed to be on 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' by the end of the show's run?"
Alyson: "Sarah [Michelle Gellar]. [audience oooohs] She had a big career going. It was a lot of work."
Cohen: "What is the most annoying thing about 'Buffy' fans?"
Alyson: "The only ones that annoy me are the ones that show up at my house. Just ... don't come to my house."
Cohen: "Tell us one 'Buffy' on-set hook-up we did not yet know about?"
Alyson: "I think Nick [Brendan] and I might have kissed once ... he might have had a boob or something."
Update: A previous version of this article said that Cohen asked "Who was the most annoying, »
Zachary Quinto and Alyson Hannigan were the guests last night on Watch What Happens Live, and managed to endure a gaffe-prone Andy Cohen (who called Zach “Zachary Kinto,” mispronounced “Uhura,” and called a phaser a “taser”).
In the hilarious first clip, Alyson and Zachary play “Sci-Fi or Oh My,” and have to decide whether fan art is clean … or not. My favorite – the kitties.
In part one of the aftershow, Zachary plays “Plead the Fifth” and Alyson dishes on who she keeps in touch with from Buffy
Alyson Hannigan is lucky enough to be associated with two huge television properties. Between appearances on "Late Show" and "Watch What Happen: Live" Wednesday night, she managed to talk about both of them. And during her "Late Show" appearance, she dropped a pretty huge hint about the long-awaited "mother" reveal on "How I Met Your Mother."
"I had always thought that the last show of the whole series was going to be the reveal of the mother," she said. "And, without CBS coming and killing me, I just want to say that I’m glad I didn’t bet on that."
She went on to say that fans will have to tune in to the season finale on Monday to find out what she's talking about.

Right now, we are in the middle of Season 8 of the popular T.V. show How I Met Your Mother, which is setting up to have Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris) and Robin Scherbatsky (Cobie Smulders) get hitched.
The show’s main theme is the future Ted Mosby (narrated by Bob Saget) telling his future kids in 2030 the story of how he ended up meeting their mother.
In previous episodes, we’ve gotten clues as to who the mother is and it all comes around to when Ted meets her at Barney and Robin’s wedding when she plays as part of the band at the reception.
We know that she was at a club the same night Ted and Barney were on St. Patrick’s Day and she left a yellow umbrella that she was holding, an umbrella he ends up finding at the club and takes with him. »

So far away and yet so near. The problem with depicting the future on TV is that, 99.99999% of the time, it never turns out that way. Take the short-lived Space: 1999, the mid-1970s ITV rival to Doctor Who. 1999 itself was far less dramatic – the moon was never catapulted across space in the wake of a nuclear disaster. And come to think of it, no one walked around in drab, grey jumpsuits with big, bouffant hair. So many of the sci-fi classics made the mistake of thinking that the future is overpowered by the jumpsuit and the bouffant hairdo – a terrifying combination.
And let's not forget computers – great big clunky pieces of metal that would require the combined mights of Geoff Capes, Big Daddy and Giant Haystacks to ferry from one place to another. TV programmes also assumed that computers could talk to people in the form of a giant holographic face. »
The original American Pie gang return, older but definitely none the wiser, for a high school reunion that lets everyone party likes it’s 1999 - again. Jason Biggs is back as well-meaning, accident prone Jim, joined by Alyson Hannigan as his flute-loving wife Michelle for more sticky situations involving inappropriate parenting and an array of compromising positions. With Jim's dad (Eugene Levy) offering more dubious advice and Seann William Scott’s Stifler as loud 'n' proud as ever, the scatological silliness is poured thick and creamy over this last slice of Pie. »
