It was two years ago that CBS surprisingly opted against the Greta Gerwig-led How I Met Your Mother spinoff How I Met Your Dad, but you know what they say about bad pennies. 20th TV has formally begun development of yet another quasi-spinoff from the franchise, this time going back to the How I Met Your Father title.

We were admittedly uncertain what to think when 'How I Met Your Mother' spinoff 'How I Met Your Dad' unexpectedly imploded at the CBS upfronts, as what seemed like a shoe-in for pickup was rejected by the network, and was ultimately let go. Now, a new report suggests that 'HIMYM' creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas will redevelop the spinoff for another season, but will series lead Greta Gerwig or the cast return?

Well, this is something of a surprise. Uncertain though we were at the prospect of 'How I Met Your Mother' living in on in the gender-flipped sequel series 'How I Met Your Dad,' it seems CBS has defied expectation to opt against picking up the series at least for now.

Who's ready to have Greta Gerwig drag things out for another nine years?
