While Smulders is contractually obligated to How I Met Your Mother , the actress remains open to returning to ABC’s SHIELD.
“I’m up for it, it’s just a matter of the direction that they decide to go with the show,” she tells The Hollywood Reporter. “I don’t know how much they’ll be at the Command Center and how much they need me around. If it works out organically with the story line, then I’d be happy to come in but I truly don’t know.”
