‘How I Met Your Father’ Will be a HIMYM Spinoff

Not one to let go of a cash cow, How I Met Your Mother creators are looking to extend the franchise another 9 years. Deadline reports that creators/exec producers Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are looking to feature a new group of New York friends and this time tell the story of a woman’s quest to meet her future husband.

I hear the new characters could be introduced in the HIMYM series finale, and Ted, Barney, Marshall, Lily and Robin’s favorite hangout, MacLaren’s Pub, may be featured on the new show, serving as a link between the two gangs. The premise, which is not tied to any of the original HIMYM characters, gives Bays, Thomas and Spivey a clean slate to build new characters and relationships. The trio, who will co-write and executive produce the spinoff, share a background — they all started in late-night and worked on New York-based late-night shows (Late Show for Bays and Thomas, Saturday Night Live for Spivey) before transitioning to primetime comedy series.

Hopefully there will be a lot of Tindr jokes. Isn’t that what all the kids are using to get married with these days?
