Meeting the mother? Done that. Now, CBS is looking to the future with a How I Met Your Mother spin-off that focuses on a father.
CBS is talking with 20th Century Fox TV about a possible offshoot of the popular comedy, which will end this season. According to our sister site Deadline, the spin-off concept follows a new group of friends, including a young woman who’s relating the story of how she fell in love with her children’s dad.
HIMYM co-creators/executive producers Carter Bays and Craig Thomas would write and executive produce the project, tentatively called How I Met Your Father, with Up All Night creator/EP Emily Spivey.
The new show’s central characters could be introduced in the HIMYM series finale; there’s also buzz that McLaren’s Pub may be featured in the potential comedy.
When asked at Comic-Con about the possibility of such a project, Thomas joked, “I don’t want to confirm or deny. You never know. There’s CSI: Miami. Maybe it’s How I Met Your Father: Miami.”
