As the sitcom "How I Met Your Mother" nears to an end, the sitcom's unique narrative might continue to live on. Co-creators Craig Thomas and Carter Bays are coming up a storm with a spinoff based on a female-centric story "Up All Night" by Emily Spivey. Could this be titled "How I Met Your Father?"
The new take will not include the original How I Met Your Mother characters but will have a similar set of friends, possibly introduced in the parent series' finale and the MacLaren's Pub can even be a major hangout set.
Thomas, Bays and Spivey will executive produce and co-write the spinoff.
A lot of fans are already speculating that the spinoff could feature the Mother, Cristin Milioti, and revolve around her youth in New York before she met Ted. However, the spinoff series is rumoured to be a story about a group of friends and a new leading lady on the lookout for her future husband. If it goes forward, the project will not be connected to the original HIMYM characters, Barney (Neil Patrick Harris), Ted (Josh Radnor), Lily (Alyson Hannigan), Robin (Cobie Smulders) and Marshall (Jason Segel).
If the spinoff would revolve around Cristin Milioti, then can the theory that the mother is dead still be possible? It has been speculated that Ted (Josh Radnor) has been telling this long story about how he met her to his kids. It's either the mother just died and he is reminiscing with his kids or she died even before the children were old enough to remember her that's why he tells them about the mom they never knew. Bays and Thomas have always said that they've already decided how the show's going to end early on and this is one ending that remains the same no matter how the plot goes.
Back in 2012, Thomas joked about the possibility of a spinoff in this E! Online report. "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," he said. This spinoff has a strong chance of being a hit sitcom, given "How I Met Your Mother"s popularity even in its final season.
