CBS's "How I Met Your Mother" Season 9 will commence tonight, and fans of the show will be eager to catch this finale season and see finally how Ted gets together with the "mother."

In spoiler news it has been revealed that Cristin Milioti will be playing the role, and the actress recently discussed joining the show and revealed a few spoilers about her character.

In a recent interview with TV Guide, Milioti admitted that she did not previously watch the show, but that has not stopped her being cast in the hugely anticipated role.

"I didn't watch "How I Met Your Mother" This is embarrassing. I had never seen it. But that's nothing to do with the show; it's because of my own sheltered life. ... I didn't know what was happening on the show, so I never thought that I was interviewing to be The Mother," Milioti told TV Guide.

In fact, because she was not familiar with the show, the actress was not aware of how special the role really was.

"I probably would've realized it sooner if I had watched the show, but I put two and two together because the set was on lockdown whenI got there, and everyone was so warm and lovely and excited to meet me," she said.

Despite being unfamiliar with the show at first, Milioti has caught up, and is exited for the role. She feels that the role is a great match for Ted.

"They're a great fit and have great chemistry. She's really sweet and lovable, but she's also a nerd with the same interests and dad humor like Ted. She gets him. The clues that have been dropped about her over the years are not personality traits. They're like: She plays the bass. She makes breakfast foods while singing. Now you see who she is and she's a pretty big dork!" the actress said.
