It only took eight years, but "How I Met Your Mother" is finally making its debut at Comic-Con. The celebrated comedy will kick off its ninth and final season this fall. And the July 20 panel will undoubtedly allow the show's stars and creators to thank fans for their time-tested support while saying goodbye.

At the end of Season 8, Bays and company revealed the highly anticipated and buzzed-about identity of the mother. Cristin Milioti will play the love of Ted's (Radnor) life when the show returns, and rumor has it the whole season will play out in real time. Bays hasn't confirmed this but said Season 9 will "tell the epic story of the longest wedding weekend ever."

i Love Dr. Horrible, Buffy the Vampire slayer, and Marvel's "The Avengers" but if they are only showing up to field questions about a horrible father telling his kids how many women he slept with before he met their mom and one of those women is their "Aunt" they shouldnt get their hopes up.
