Possible CBS 'How I Met Your Mother' Spinoff with a Female Twist

“How I Met Your Mother” fans may not have to part ways with their beloved series at the end of this final season.

Variety has recently  confirmed that CBS is in discussions with 20th Century Fox TV for a spinoff of the comedy, which will offer a female spin on the original show. As Deadline first reported, spinoff is from “HIMYM” creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas along with Emily Spivey, and is also being referred to as “How I Met Your Father.” The series would center on a group of friends living in Gotham and one woman’s quest to meet her future husband. Despite it being a spin-off currently, the concept is not tied to any of the current “HIMYM” characters. “How I Met Your Mother” returned for its ninth and final season on Sept. 23
