Following the outstanding success of How I Met Your Mother, a spinoff was planned by the original producers of the show. Sadly it bombed so hard with CBS execs the pilot was as far as it got.
That may be set to change, with the Hollywood Reporter reporting that there is a second attempt to launch the show with new writers starting from scratch, for How I Met Your Dad.
It’s set to use the same premise of a parent telling her children what went down, but it is set to be a standalone show, unlikely to involve any of the original cast
No word as to if original creators Craig Thomas and Carter Bays are set to be involved, but given the fantastic first 8 series (Gotta discount the final run) if it stays true to the original – another smash hit may be on the horizon
