After 208 episodes, How I Met Your Mother ended with a finale that shocked many people. Long story short: Ted ended up win Robin after the mother died. How I Met Your Mother was nominated for 28 emmys over the nine seasons.
How I Met Your Dad has already had two attempts to be written with it not moving
forward very far. It was in the works with Meg Ryan doing a voiceover and starring Greta Gerwig which the network passed on. Then 20th Century Fox was going to do it with the co-executive producers of This Is Us; Elizabeth Berger and Issac Aptaker, but they became too busy when their show became a hit. Finally, then spin-off is happening!
Fox chairman Dana Walden told Deadline, “They will be starting from scratch. It’s one that’s been slowly cooked. If it’s the right idea the right execution, we’ll take that.”
If Fox finds new writers what would you like to see from this show? Would you want any of the original cast to return?
