At the end of January, the popular TV sitcom, "How I Met Your Mother", was given the green light for what will be its ninth and final season. "How I Met Your Mother", or HIMYM, has been a run-away hit since its inception in 2005 and has been gaining a huge following over the past 8 seasons. HIMYM is based around the story of how Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) met his wife and mother of his two children. The entire show is told through flashbacks as future Ted recounts the story of how he met his wife to his children. The bulk of the show takes place around Ted's close knit group of friends: Marshall Eriksen(Jason Segel), his college sweetheart Lily Eriksen (Alyson Hannigan), the Canadian ex-pop sensation turned anchor woman Robin Scherbatsky(Cobie Smulders) , and the womanizing lady-killer Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris).
“American Reunion” opened second at the box office over the weekend, raking in a mediocre $21.5 million. For the fourth weekend in a row, “Hunger Games” continued to dominate the competition, grossing $33.5 million, and bringing the film’s worldwide gross to $460 million.
The gang is back for another round, as Jason Biggs and Alyson Hannigan return for “American Reunion.”
