Her first permanent series role was in the short-lived ABC series Veritas: The Quest, which ran for one season.
After the cancellation of Veritas, Smulders was cast as television reporter Robin Scherbatsky on the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother in 2005, remaining on the show for its entire nine-season run.
She is best known for her starring role as Robin Scherbatsky on the comedy series How I Met Your Mother (2005–2014).
