How I Met Your Mother (often abbreviated as HIMYM) is an American sitcom TV show created by Craig Thomas and Carter Bays. The series ran on CBS from 2005 to 2014 with a total of 208 episodes spread across 9 seasons. The show follows its main character, Ted Mosby. He narrates the story of how he met the mother of his future children. From the present year, 2030, he goes into a flashback and starts in 2005. Ted Mosby was then a 27-year-old living in New York City and working as an architect. The story revolves around him and his closed group of friends. They are the long-lasting couple Marshall Eriksen and Lily Aldrin. Then, there is the womanizing playboy Barney Stinson. Lastly, there is the Canadian news reporter Robin Scherbatsky to round out the group.
