Britney Spears will be reprising her role as Abby, the slightly slow receptionist that hit it off with Barney, on the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother. The new episode starring Spears will air on May 12 and some plot lines have already been released by the network. This appearance will help the new found resurgence of the former pop idol ever since her father Jamie has come into to town to take care of his daughter.
The synopsis of the episode, “Everything Must Go,” was released by 20th Century Fox: “Barney and Abby realize that they have one thing in common, their mutual hatred of Ted. The new ‘couple’ decides to go to the bar to flaunt their new relationship in Ted’s face. Desperate to get a rise out of his former pal, Barney pops a surprising question to Abby. ”
