The cast of 'How I Met Your Mother'. The sitcom's sister series called 'How I Met Your Father' is currently being developed.
The new show will be developed by the original sitcom’s creators.
The world of popular sitcom How I Met Your Mother will likely live on beyond its last season through a spin-off, which is currently being developed under the working title How I Met Your Father.
According to Deadline.com, CBS is preparing a spin-off to appeal to the numerous fans of How I Met Your Mother, which will wrap up in May 2014 after nine seasons. The creators of the original show, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, are taking part in the development of the spin-off.
How I Met Your Father will aim to tell a similar story to its sister series, which fans affectionately call HIMYM, but from a feminine perspective. As suggested by the name, the show will focus on a mother telling her children the story of their parents’ first encounter.
The cast of How I Met Your Mother will give way to a new group of characters, who may be introduced in the last episode of the current show. References to the original will run throughout the spin-off, and MacLaren’s, the pub where Ted, Barney, Lily, Marshall and Robin like to meet, will still be a frequent setting for the new characters.
While the new series is being developed, US audiences can tune in for the very last season of HIMYM, which premiered in September on CBS.
Josh Radnor narrates the show in the role of Ted Mosby, telling his two children how he met their mother. The latter character finally made an appearance on the show in its final season, played by Cristin Milioti. — AFP Relaxnews
