James Van Der Beek will be reprising his role as Robin’s ex-boyfriend, Simon, later on in How I Met Your Mother‘s ninth and final season.
While it’s always sad to see a beloved TV show end, final seasons can mean the triumphant return of many characters from previous seasons. For How I Met Your Mother‘s ninth and final season, Bryan Cranston led the charge of returning supporting characters and now James Van Der Beek joins him, returning to the show as Robin’s ex-boyfriend, Simon.
Van Der Beek broke the news on his Twitter account (which has an adorable cover photo definitely worth your time):

Apparently his commute from the Friends with Better Lives set to the How I Met Your Mother set was pretty brutal as well.
Entertainment Weekly then confirmed his appearance, noting that he will be in the season’s 12th episode, titled “Bedtime Stories,” and written by series creators Craig Thomas and Carter Bays.
Van Der Beek previously portrayed Simon in two episodes, season 3’s “Sandcastles in the Sand” and season 8’s “P.S. I Love You.”
It’s unknown if Simon will be at Robin and Barney’s wedding or if he will be appearing via flashback. But either way it could mean the season 9 debut of everyone’s favorite teenage Canadian pop-star: Robin Sparkles.
