The show is now in its ninth and final season, but Deadline says CBS just finished a deal with 20th Century Fox TV to tape a pilot episode for How I Met Your Dad, a spinoff following the same kind of story from the female point of view.
Dad (why isn't it Father?) will have new characters and a new story, but linking the two series will be the beloved bar MacLaren’s Pub.
It's possible the new spinoff characters will be introduced on How I Met Your Mother before it ends, but that’s not 100 percent yet.
Since HIMYM's ratings are still high after nine seasons, they may want to push for lots of crossovers, bringing the original cast over for several guest appearances and special episodes.
But we'll have to stay tuned for details on how this develops. Are you intrigued to meet the new cast? Do you think they’ll spend just as many years telling the story? Will it still be legen(waitforit)dary?
