The producers of “How I Met Your Mother” chose Valentine’s Day, of all days, to stage the first reading of the series finale script. Judging by what cast members and the creators shared on social media afterward, there were few dry eyes once it was over.
Take a look at this picture from Alyson Hannigan, for instance:

Her colleagues expressed similar sentiments.
Josh Radnor: “Read the ‘HIMYM’ series finale script on the treadmill at the gym this morning. People probably thought that was sweat in my eyes. Suckers.”
Neil Patrick Harris: “Just finished the initial read thru of the final ‘How I Met Your Mother.’ Ever. Holy moly. Just… holy dang moly. #soproud”
“How I Met Your Mother” returns from its brief winter hiatus at 8 p.m. ET/PT Monday, Feb. 24 on CBS. The hour-long series finale, “Last Forever,” is scheduled for March 31.
