‘How I Met Your Father’ Season 2 Cast
There is nothing shared yet about who can be returned to reprise their roles but we can expect the lead cast to get back together for another season.
The emergence of Cobie Smulders for her role as Robin Scherbatsky in the last episode of the series came as a surprise for fans. And as indicated by Aptaker and Berger, there will be more cameos in the upcoming season of the series.
In an interview, Aptaker said “I don’t think [the How I Met Your Mother characters] always necessarily have to come back to teach a lesson or impart wisdom,” adding further “What worked really well about Robin’s return is that she was essential to the story and was key in Sophie’s decision making and what happened next in Sophie’s life.”
He further added that “So I think whenever we would bring someone back from the original, the hope would be that they would play an essential role in our story and not just feel like they’re there to say ‘hey’ and see what whoever is up to.”
Talking about who might join the upcoming season, co-creator Isaac Aptaker told TVLine: “I don’t think [How I Met Your Mother characters] always necessarily have to come back to teach a lesson or impart wisdom,” adding “What worked really well about Robin’s return is that she was essential to the story and was key in Sophie’s decision making and what happened next in Sophie’s life.”

‘How I Met Your Father’ Season 2 Expected Storyline
Though we can expect the forthcoming season of ‘How I Met Your Father’ to start off where the first season left us, we would probably see Sophie date around NYC whilst making attempts to find The One.
However, as Sophie noted in the premiere of the show, she actually met the father in that first episode…but who is it? We may get answers to all the unanswered questions season one left with.
