How I Met Your Mother fans may have to wait even longer for How I Met Your Father. TVLine reports the spinoff has been delayed because of the NBC drama This Is Us.
Earlier, 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.
Now, How I Met Your Father has been put on the backburner because Aptaker and Berger have been promoted to co-showrunners on This Is Us. The spinoff, which is still in the early stages of development, has been described as How I Met Your Mother but told from a female perspective. None of the original HIMYM castmembers are expected to star in the project, which is not yet attached to a network.
What do you think? Are you a fan of HIMYM? Would you watch the spinoff?
