To every end, there’s a new beginning. Although fans are devastated to say goodbye to “How I Met Your Mother” this fall, there’s a dim sliver of beaming light on the horizon that bodes well for all those discouraged. It’s not much, but it’s something, and that’s all fans need in a time of distress such as now.
Creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, along with former “Up All Night” executive producer Emily Spivey, have pitched a female-led half-hour comedy called “How I Met Your Father,” Entertainment Weekly reports. Similar to its predecessor, the show would feature a group of friends in New York and follow the main character’s quest to find her future husband. If the show is picked up, there’s also a chance that it would it include the iconic MacLaren’s Pub, providing fans with an easy transition into life post “How I Met Your Mother.”
Although talks are in the early stages, rumors indicate that the new cast will be introduced in the “How I Met Your Mother” series finale. That’s only if the show is given the greenlight, which seems plausible. Why wouldn’t it?
And there could me more life for “How I Met Your Mother” following its finale. Back in September, Alyson Hannigan, who plays Lily on the show, claimed to be working her hardest to keep the gang’s spirit alive. “I’m trying to convince [Jason] Segel to do the spin-off,” she said during an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “He said he’ll do it if it’s called, ‘Out By Lunch’ and we can get out by lunch everyday and we only work a couple days a week. I’m like, ‘I’m in.’ We can do it - we work really quickly together.”
So don’t fret. There’s plenty more “How I Met Your Mother” antics on the horizon.
