Robin’s appearance in How I Met Your Father is the latest in a long string of references to the original How I Met Your Mother series. The most notable Easter Egg is the apartment rented by Jesse, Sid and Ellen which was originally the home of Ted, Marshal and Lily from the original series. “This is very much its own show and we’re telling an entirely new story here,” said showrunner Elizabeth Berger. “But at the same time, we wanted to pay tribute to the original and give this loyal fan base — and we are part of that fan base — something special.”
It’s currently unknown whether How I Met Your Father will include any more appearances from the original gang of characters. While the show has already been renewed for Season 2, the creative team behind the popular sitcom revival has yet to reveal any plans for future stories.
