Despite CBS passing on the How I Met Your Mother spinoff starring Greta Gerwig back in May, TVLine reports that while HIMYD is dead, it’ll get another shot at joining the network lineup next season. According to an insider, HIMYD co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas “remain invested” in making the spinoff happen and will have an opportunity to redevelop the project for the 2015-2016 season, though it will most likely not include Greta Gerwig or narration by Meg Ryan.
UPDATE: As it seems to be the case with any HIMYD-related news lately, it turns out this report is false. Bays and Thomas both took to Twitter today to tell fans that the show is dead, at least for the time being:
I don't know why I keep reading articles about this, but since nobody bothers asking us: We are really, truly not working on HIMYD anymore.Carter Bays (@CarterBays) July 11, 2014
