As we say a fond farewell to the beloved How I Met your Mother, ardent fans shouldn't get too sad for this one very exciting reason:
Deadline have learned that there is to be a How I Met Your Mother spin off entitled- wait for it- How I Met Your Father.
Set in New York, How I Met Your Father takes a female point of view on the original show.
Deadline have heard that:
The new characters could be introduced in the How I Met Your Mother series finale, and Ted, Barney, Marshall, Lily and Robin’s favorite hangout, MacLaren’s Pub, may be featured on the new show, serving as a link between the two gangs.
Apparently CBS is in talks with How I Met Your Mother producer 20th Century Fox TV for a series which will be helmed by: HIMYM creators/executive producers and and Up All Night creator and executive producer Emily Spivey.
The news comes as no surprise considering that How I Met Your Mother has become somewhat of a crutch for the essential Monday viewing; which has taken a nose dive of late.
Deadline have revealed that
How I Met Your Mother launched its final season with a 3.7 adults 18-49 rating and remains CBS’ highest-rated Monday series and the second-highest rated overall behind The Big Bang Theory.
So what do you think fans? How do you feel about hearing the other side of the story?
