Rachel Bilson Returning to How I Met Your Mother

by at . Comments

Possibly signaling the show's return to its titular purpose, Rachel Bilson will reprise her role as the mother's roommate, Cindy, on How I Met Your Mother this fall.

Series creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas confirm that the cutie will appear in the show’s sixth season premiere this fall when Cindy shows up at McLaren’s.

The favored hangout of Mother‘s central quintet is in for a surprise. “The season premiere is going to be very much informed by her presence,” Bays reveals.

Hopefully, the whole season is informed by an actual, overarching storyline.

Last season offered plenty of great How I Met Your Mother quotes, but little advancement of the mother plot and plenty of episodes that were standalone filler.
