It's been eight years and nine seasons since Ted Mosby sat his son and daughter down to tell them how he met their mother. Eight years of tangents, womanizing, and a slew of New York City drama has lead to How I Met Your Mother's final revelation. This is big.
Mosby's kids have grown up anxiously waiting to hear the climax of their father's extremely extended journey down memory lane, and they've just about had enough. The trailer for the show's ninth and final season shows them cursing and pleading with their dad to finally get to the end of his story (after all, they haven't left the couch in eight years!). Well, their reprieve is nigh. The beginning of the end starts September 23.
