how i met your mother cast actingSeason 7 of “How I Met Your Mother” ended with Ted Mosby (played by Josh Radnor) and Victoria (played by Ashley Williams) running off together as Victoria ditches her wedding so last minute, she was wearing her wedding gown. CBS recently hired “Reno 911″ star Thomas Lennon to play Victoria’s ditched groom, Klaus.

The latest season ended with Ted and Victoria literally riding off together into the sunset. Ted had attempted to do the right thing and return the bride to be to her church wedding, as he couldn’t forget being left at the altar himself. However, once they were there, all Ted could think of were the wonderful times he had spent with Victoria and the two decided not to stop. Apparently, they don’t make it very far as Ted turns the car around so that Victoria can leave a note for Klaus. Thomas Lennon has been signed on for numerous episodes, so we’re not quite sure how long this part of the story will play out.

While the network, producers, and writers are debating a deal for the ninth season of the comedy, rumors are swirling that some of the cast may be done with the series. Executive producers Craig Thomas and Carter Bays had previously decided to end the series in season 8. But now they say they have to be ready for all possibilities. They are however, excited at the chance to do one more season!

Along with the new recruit, Lennon, there are some familiar faces that will be returning to the show. Joe Manganiello, who recently showed off his… um… assets in the film “Magic Mike” will be returning to the show as Brad, a law school friend of Marshall (played by Jason Segel) who had a hilarious date with Robin (Cobie Smulders.) Though we’re not quite sure of the details surrounding his return, we can’t wait to see him again. Manganiello is also known for his role on “True Blood” in which he plays Alcide Herveaux.  He’s also been seen on “White Collar” and “Two andtom posing a Half Men.”

Another returning guest star will be Michael Trucco, who has been the object of Robin’s crush. Apparently, this crush will turn into much more, as Michael becomes a major recurring love interest. Though the producers have said that they will also go much deeper into Barney and Robin’s wedding than they ever have before. They are hoping to answer some of the questions surrounding the end of the series, but also create all new questions.

Another new issue for season 8 of the hit CBS show is the new baby. The group of friends has to figure out how Marshall and Lily’s new roles as parents fit into their friendships. At some point, Robin gets to babysit the little tyke and Lily begins to question her career now that she gets to enjoy all the blessings of motherhood.

Don’t forget Barney’s upcoming nuptials. In one of the season’s first episodes, Barney decides he must have a pre-nup drawn up. Apparently this pre-nup will include a ton of Barney’s craziness and ideas of what a marriage should be like!

How I Met Your Mother will premiere its eighth season next month. We can hardly wait!
