'How I Met Your Mother' Spinoff Gets Pilot Commitment From CBS

“How I Met Your Dad” will approach its story from a female point of view

“How I Met Your Mother” is winding its way to a series finale with its current and last season, but CBS is looking toward the next phase with a spinoff.

The network has given a pilot production commitment to “How I Met Your Dad,” which will be written and executive produced by “HIMYM” creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, as well as “Up All Night” executive producer Emily Spivey.

The spinoff will bear a similar theme to “How I Met Your Mother,” but will be told from a female point of view.

“How I Met Your Mother,” which stars Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Segel, Josh Radnor and Alyson Hannigan, follows the exploits of Manhattanite Ted Mosby and his friends, framed by Mosby telling his kids in 2030 about the events that led to him meeting their mother.

The new project will feature a brand-new story with new characters, and a new voice at the center of the story.

    not sure how i feel about this… usually spinoffs dont work but i like that its just the same theme not the same characters i think thats what usually kills spinoffs is one characters not enough cause we all grew to love everyone in the cast as a group but a whole new cast might work and i like the style of this show a lot!
