Kids, two-and-a-half years later, I may finally get to meet your dad.
A new take on a How I Met Your Mother spinoff, told from a female point of view, is in development for next season at studio 20th Century Fox TV, our sister site Deadline reports. The news comes two-and-a-half years after CBS passed on the offshoot How I Met Your Dad, starring Greta Gerwig.
This Is Us co-executive producers/writers Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger are behind the latest stab at continuing the HIMYM franchise, which is titled How I Met Your Father. The ensemble will not feature any characters from the original series and, thus, the project may not necessarily land at CBS.
HIMYM creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas will serve as EPs on the potential comedy alongside Aptaker and Berger, but their day-to-day involvement remains TBD
