However Neil Patrick Harris also isn’t ashamed to admit that How I Met Your MotherBarney Stinson, the’s Barney Stinson, made some questionable decisions that shouldn’t have been revisited.

The actor frankly thinks that his character would be canceled if the show hadn’t ended in 2014. So, it makes sense that he doesn’t expect an invitation to appear in the Hulu spinoff series How I Met Your Father.

His Wondercade newsletter featured the star telling his story HIMYF‘s Hilary Duff“I’m not sure if he will be coming to your show (insert joke). I fear that Barney would get into trouble for his antics and delusions about grandeur. So, I’m not certain if he has changed his ways or joined the nunnery (insert humor here), but it is in everyone’s best interests.

Hilary is the producer of the series and also the star in the search for the father who named her children, but she agrees. “I’m not sure how you feel about this, but I’m pretty sure Barney would … be in jail in 2022.”
