EW has confirmed that HIMYM creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas and former Up All Night EP Emily Spivey have pitched a female-led half-hour comedy called How I Met Your Father. Like HIMYM, it would feature a group of friends, be set in New York and chronicle the main character’s quest to meet her future husband. There’s a chance the proposed project might also feature HIMYM icon MacLaren’s Pub.

If the idea is given the greenlight — talks are extremely preliminary — the new slate of characters would likely be introduced in the How I Met Your Mother series finale, according to reports.

Earlier this year, Thomas, speaking to EW for our How I Met Your Mother cover story, admitted that a spin-off possibility was something he and Bays were “thinking about.” “There’s a world where the universe of the show can keep existing in a way that feels coherent to what’s come before, but new enough to be worth watching.”


When I first heard this idea a while ago I thought they we going to do it from The Mother’s perspective which I liked, but it seems like it will be a whole new cast. I’m not sure how I feel. What about you guys?
