CBS may be planning a spinoff to How I Met Your Mother. The network is in talks with producer 20th Century Fox TV for the series, which would focus on a female take on the series. It’s being referred to as How I Met Your Father and comes from HIMYM creators/executive producers Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, as well as Up All Nigh creator/executive producer Emily Spivey.
The show would feature a new group of New York friends and focus on a female’s attempts to meet her future husband. The new characters would be introduced in the series finale of HIMYM. MacLaren’s Pub may be featured on the new show, being the only link between the two. The premise would not be tied to any of the original characters.
Bays, Thomas and Spivey will co-write and executive produce the spinoff.
