“How I Met Your Mother” fans may not have to part ways with their beloved series at the end of this final season.
Variety has confirmed that CBS is in discussions with 20th Century Fox TV for a spinoff of the comedy, which will offer a femme spin on the original show. As Deadline first reported, spinoff is from “HIMYM” creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas along with Emily Spivey, and is being referred to as “How I Met Your Father.” Project would center on a group of friends living in Gotham and one woman’s quest to meet her future husband.
The concept is not tied to any of the current “HIMYM” characters.
The Eye has received a pitch for the project and is in on-going discussions, but that no deal has been secured yet.
“How I Met Your Mother” returned for its ninth and final season on Sept. 23.
