'How I Met Your Mother' spin-off series in the making
As fans are preparing to say goodbye to one of TV's most popular comedy show, 'How I Met Your Mother', makers are looking to extend the franchise
The show starring Josh Radnor, Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Segel, Alyson Hannigan and others, is currently in its ninth and final season but CBS is exploring the option of a spin-off series, which will take a female spin on the original storyline, reported Deadline.
'How I Met Your Father' is believed to be the title of the new series, which will feature a new set of friends in New York City. A female is now in search for her future husband and the new cast may be introduced in the final episode of 'HIMYM'.
The proposed link between the two gangs will be Ted, Barney, Marshall, Lilly and Robin's favourite place to hang out, 'MacLaren's Pub'. The spin-off is the brainchild of 'HIMYM' creators/executive producers Carter Bays and Craig Thomas and 'Up All Night' creator/exec producer Emily Spivey.
They will co-write and executive produce the new series and the trio also come from the same background of working on New York-based late-night shows.
