"As Janeane, the craziest girl the HIMYM gang has ever encountered," producer Criag Thomas tells EW. "And the strange, inexplicable phenomenon is: the crazier Janeane gets, the more attractive one of the gang finds her. It doesn’t end well.”

Chris Elliott, Abby's father, also recurs as Lily's father and will make another appearance at some point on Season 8, which kicks off September 24.

Abby's's first installment will take place in early 2013.
