Last month, we reported This Is Us writers Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger are developing a new spinoff to the long-running CBS sitcom, which ended in 2014. A previous attempt, How I Met Your Dad, was written by series creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas but it never made it past the pilot stage.
At this week’s Television Critics Association press tour, CBS chief Glenn Geller said he’s excited to read the How I Met Your Father script:
We haven’t seen anything, we haven’t been pitched anything. I’m excited to read it when it’s finished, and it could potentially be a project for us.”
Like the original, How I Met Your Father will feature flashbacks as a mother tells her children how she met their dad.
What do you think? Are you a fan of How I Met Your Mother? Would you watch the spinoff series?
