The nine year run of 'How I Met Your Mother' comes to an end Monday night.

The series title will finally be fulfilled as Ted finishes telling his children the story of how he and their mother became a couple.

Bexley native Josh Radnor plays Ted and has been a fixture on the series.

Earlier this year, he told 10TV's Chuck Strickler that his time on the show has "been a blur."

"It's kind of bittersweet, but it's also, you're ready for it to be over - because it's a long time to do one part and one thing. But at the same time, you've got to honor it and recognize how much all our lives changed because of it, and what a really amazing time it's been."

He added that the season finale is extra special for the actors and the viewers.

"I feel in some ways, it rewards the viewer who has watched for eight years, because there's so many inside jokes and built-up things. There's a lot of wind in the sails of this story. It definitely will certainly go down as a special experience, and I know for the rest of my life, if people talk about my career, this is one of the things they will mention. I doubt this will get buried, I mean, maybe I'll do so much work that people will forget I was ever on this show; but right now it feels like something that people passionately care about, and it's a great thing to be a part of."
