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.
How I Met Your Father
We weren't altogether surprised to learn that CBS would attempt to parlay 'How I Met Your Mother' into a spinoff with 'How I Met Your Father,' but it seems the new female driven series will officially move forward, at least with one small caveat. Kids, get ready to find out 'How I Met Your Dad'!
Just when you thought the ninth and final season of 'How I Met Your Mother' couldn't drag out the inevitable any longer, here comes the spinoff! CBS has entered talks with 'HIMYM' creators Carter Bays, Craig Thomas and 'Up All Night' creator-executive producer Emily Spivey for an offshoot series of the MacLaren's gang titled 'How I Met Your Father,' but what about the series actually seems like it could work for the franchise?
