The wrap-up of How I Met Your Mother’s ninth season came off more like a mercy killing—and one long overdue at that. But don’t count the titular Mother out just yet—Cristin Milioti will return to NBC in a lead role for their coming sitcom, A To Z.
One of several projects recently sold by Parks and Rec’s Rashida Jones, A To Z tells the story of a couple’s relationship, from their first meeting to their breakup. Milioti will play “Zelda,” the female lead whom Deadline describes as the “realist” to boyfriend Andrew’s more pie-in-the-sky version of relationship building.
Consequently, Zelda also seems like somewhat of a stick in the mud. As per the AV Club’s description:
“Alternately serious and hilarious, Zelda believes she controls her own destiny, loves being a grown-up, and doesn’t understand why anyone over 20 would go see an animated movie or eat ice cream sundaes.”
