How I Met Your Father?

It could be closer than you think. With How I Met Your Mother in the midst of its ninth and final season, CBS is considering keeping the laughs coming with a potential spinoff that puts a female spin on the premise.

According to Deadline, this possible spinoff comes from HIMYM creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, and Up All Night creator Emily Spivey.

The tentatively titled How I Met Your Father, reports Deadline, “would feature a new group of New York friends and chronicle a female member of the group’s quest to meet her future husband,”; and these new characters may even be introduced in the series finale of HIMYM. In addition, this new gang of pals would also hang out at MacLaren’s Pub, which would allow “a link between the two gangs”; and open the door for future guest spots from the HIMYM crew.

At this point, the spinoff is still in the conceptual stage, so stay tuned.
