How I Met Your Mother: What's the Next Chapter?

She said yes!

On the final How I Met Your Mother Season 8 episode of 2012, Barney got down on one knee and viewers were treated to one of the more romantic proposals on television.

Where does the sitcom go from here?

Barney Proposes

Following Barney's long con - which co-creator Carter Bays actually told Vulture was influenced by Breaking Bad Season 4 - it looks like both sides of this engaged couple have some pondering to do.

"The next chapter in this story is about Robin deciding if that's really what she wants in a husband, and Barney deciding if he's about more than just magic tricks," Bays teases.

Also: Robin Sparkles is returning!

Look for this alter ego's appearance to take place on February 4, which Bays previews as a "monster" installment that will feature an "astonishing lineup" of guest stars.

Looking even farther ahead, no word still on How I Met Your Mother Season 9, although signs appeared positive just a couple months ago. We'll keep readers apprised of that renewal, but in the meantime: Hooray for Barny and Robin!
