The network is calling the buzzed-about comedy project a “kindred spirit” of the original series — only this one tells the story of a relationship from a female point of view.

CBS also notes that HIMYD will be a brand-new story with new characters (lest you think that Slutty Pumpkin was finally going to have her day in the sun.)

UPDATEHIMYM co-creator Carter Bays took to Twitter late Friday to clarify that, contrary to previous reports, the new project’s characters will not be introduced during the existing series’ final season.

“This will be its own, totally new show,” he tweeted.
