How I Met Your Mother is a CBS hit sitcom which started in 2005. The leading character Ted Mosby tells his kids in the future how he met their mother. The previous 8 seasons show his life with his other four friends. But the mother character hasn’t shown up yet even though there are hints at who the mother would be. CBS said that “mother” will definitely show up in the final season.
The show has received numerous nominations and awards including the Emmy Awards since its broadcasting. Star Alyson Hannigan and Neil Patrick Harris both received Favorite TV Comedy Actress and Actor respectively for People’s Choice Awards.
