Reasons to be excited for the Sept. 19 Season 7 premiere of “How I Met Your Mother” are many — and not just because the veteran comedy marks its return with a full-hour of new programming.

CBS recently released the first promo for the premiere, “The Best Man,” and it seems likely to deliver on all the promises of sexy dancing and nuptial backdrops as the photos we recently caught. It also poses two big questions…

#1: Who will get married? Calm down. We’re going to have to go with the absentee Punchy (Chris Romanski), whose wedding seems to be setting for all the non-flash-forward events.

#2: Who will hook up? Really. Could they? Robin (Cobie Smulders) and Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) are looking awfully comfortable out there on the dance floor, but with the gang now on a crash course with his own wedding, we expect the show to tread at least a little lightly around a possible Brobin reunion so soon in the season.

One burning question we can answer already, however, is that there will definitely be at least one “Lion King” reference. Watch and enjoy.
