    Neil Patrick Harris Just Opened Up About The Possibility Of A "HIMYM" Reboot

    "I just don’t feel like there’s anything left to do, really."

    Like most people who watched TV in the late '00s, I was obsessed with How I Met Your Mother.


    Although now I can't help but notice how a lot of the characters sucked (except Marshall, of course) and that the show was problematic at times.

    Well, anyway. With shows like Will and Grace and Roseanne making a comeback, Neil Patrick Harris revealed to US Weekly what he thought of HIMYM getting the reboot treatment, too.

    He said, “I have given How I Met Your Mother very little thought. And I don’t say that with any English as if I’m making some sort of statement.”


    He continued that the series is "so complete and full of story," and that the cast had "all decided that Season 9 would be [the] final lap."

    “I really just look back on that chapter with great fondness. I just don’t feel like there’s anything left to do, really."


    “I miss the players within it. I miss the writing staff and Pam Fryman, who directed all of those shows. It was fun to get to play with the same actors every week, but right now I’m knee-deep in Snicket and those are some bony knees.”

    A couple of weeks ago, Harris's co-star Josh Radnor talked about his HIMYM days on Last Call With Carson Daly, saying, "I probably haven't seen more than half the episodes of HIMYM."

    "So these people come up to me with these lines, or these inside jokes, or these things that they think we're really going to connect over."

    "I'm always embarrassed because I'm like, 'I filmed that a decade ago and haven't thought about it since."


    Welp, it looks like we won't be getting new episodes of HIMYM any time soon. But, I'm always here for some reunion pics on Instagram!
