Everyone had their hopes pinned on a ‘How I Met Your Mother‘ spin-off a few years ago, but it somehow miserably failed to get greenlit.
But exciting news for those who frothed on the lives and stories of Ted, Marshall, Lily, Barney and Robin: the spin-off is coming.
The female-centric series is creatively titled ‘How I Met Your Dad’ (why not Father? Why ‘Dad’? I have so many questions about this), and it’s been put into development by 20th Century Fox, who did the OG series.
The 2014 series made their pilot, but CBS weren’t happy with it and wanted a redo – the studio and creators weren’t on board with the changes CBS was requesting, so it was dumped. It had Greta Gerwig cast in the lead role, and the one and only Meg Ryan as the narrator.
There’s no clues about casting for the new series just yet, but it has been confirmed that the series will have all-new characters.
