Josh Radnor To Replace Bob Saget As Narrator In HIMYM Series Finale

We hope they're making the right move here! After so many years of HIMYM, it'd be a shame to end the show on anything but a fantastic note!

According to a new report by Michael Ausiello, Bob Saget will be replaced by Josh Radnor as the narrator on the series finale of How I Met Your Mother!

Here's the scoop from Ausiello:

"The HIMYM series finale will likely feature 'the most awkward transition in series television' when Josh Radnor assumes narrator duties from Bob Saget, says exec producer Craig Thomas, who confirms that viewers 'are going to see Josh in some makeup' since the baton passing would be set far into the future."

And here's more from HIMYM executive producer Craig Thomas via Ausiello:

"When I watched the end of the last Harry Potter [movie] I had such respect for what a problem that was to just jump ahead and look so much older, [because] we might be staring into the barrel of a makeup situation at some point."

What do U think? Should the HIMYM team replace Saget for the finale…or should they stay the course???

    I don't really watch the show, but it's Josh's story isn't it, about how he met his wife? So in the end, maybe it would make sence.



  2. 2

    I don't understand why Josh wasn't the narrator in the first place. Nothing against Bob Saget. He is awesome. But this was my question for me from the get go. Who is going to play Ted in the end?



  3. 3

    It does not matter who the narrator is. Is this switch for the rest of the serious or just this season finale?



  4. 4

    Ted is an adult on the show…why do they need another person to do the narration as the older version of Ted?



  5. 5

    how sad is it that i never realized that bob was the narrator?



  6. 6

    We have seen the whole cast in the future as older people a few times already. Why would this be a challenge now?
