CBS Is Considering Spinning Off ‘How I Met Your Mother’ with ‘How I Met Your Father’


As CBS’s hit sitcom How I Met Your Mother is kicking off its ninth and final season, Variety reports that the network is considering launching a lady-centered spinoff of the show. Referred to as How I Met Your Father, the show would come from HIMYM creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas and focus on “a group of friends living in Gotham and one woman’s quest to meet her future husband.”

None of the friends would be linked to the current HIMYM group. The network is said to be “in on-going discussions” about the idea but no deal has been made.
