Britney Spears may reprise her successful cameo role as a dippy but adorable receptionist in CBS's How I Met Your Mother, reports.

Spears's first guest appearance on March 25 drew warm reviews from critics and fans -- and gave the comedy its highest ratings ever.

For Spears personally, the triumph was a comeback of sorts following her recent months of turmoil, during which she was hospitalized and father, Jamie, was named co-conservator of her affairs.

According to a show source at the time, Spears "had a lot of fun doing Mother and she even mentioned extending her character. She got along really well with everyone."

Indeed, her co-star Josh Radnor told PEOPLE earlier: "It pains me to report that on the first day of the shoot, Britney knew her lines better than I knew mine. She's been great to work with."
