Carter Bays, the show's co-creator, tweeted Sept. 27, "Here's another bit of ‪#HIMYM casting propaganda: A guest appearance by our good friend ‪@Lin_Manuel Miranda!"

Following the news, Miranda — a Tony winner for the original score of In the Heights — retweeted a message from co-creator and executive producer Craig Thomas, which read, "So excited to have ‪@Lin_Manuel joining us on ‪#HIMYM -- meant to be!" Miranda added, "You guys. YOU GUYS!"

The series, which returned for its final season Sept. 23, also features Alyson Hannigan, Josh Radnor and Jason Segel.
