Britney Spears is back on HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER

How I Met Your Mother

It’s official, Britney Spears will be back on HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER as a guest star, reprising her role of Abby, on the May 12 episode.

“We’re all so thrilled to have Britney joining us once again. And just to head it off at the pass this time around: Yes, Mom, Britney’s very nice and no, I can’t get her autograph for you,” said Craig Thomas, executive producer and co-creator, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER.

Synopsis of the episode: When Barney and Abby realize that they have one thing in common – their mutual hatred of Ted – the “couple” decides to go to the bar to flaunt their new relationship in Ted’s face. Desperate to get a rise out of his former pal, Barney pops a surprising question to Abby.

You know what, why not?, even though I wasn’t convinced by her first appearance, the character was endearing if you think about it, and anything to get a Barney focused episode is a good reason.
