HIMYM spinoff How I Met Your Father Gets You’re the Worst writer Alison Bennett
A writer has been found for the third attempt at a How I Met Your Mother spinoff, called How I Met Your Father, according to Deadline. You’re the Worst‘s Alison Bennett will pen How I Met Your Father as part of her overall deal with 20th Century TV. The show will be written on spec and there is currently no studio attached. However, the higher ups at CBS are reportedly interested. Creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are attached to executive produce, though their involvement in How I Met Your Father is expected to be limited.
There have been two attempts to create a How I Met Your Mother spinoff. Back in 2014, How I Met Your Dad was in development with Meg Ryan doing a voiceover and starring Greta Gerwig, though the network passed on it. Last season, 20th Century Fox TV tried it with This Is Us co-executive producers Elizabeth Berger and Isaac Aptaker. Aptaker and Berger are now, of course, working on that show, which became a hit.
How I Met Your Father will reportedly be a new take on the concept of the young ensemble show and tell the story of “the mother” and how she met the father of her children.
After 208 episodes told over nine seasons, the story of how Ted Mosby ultimately meets his children’s mother ended on March 31, 2013, though many fans were vocally disappointed about how the show’s ending was handled. How I Met Your Mother starred Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris, Alyson Hannigan and Cristin Milioti. The show was narrated by Bob Saget, who was the voice of the older Ted Mosby. Carter Bays, Craig Thomas, Pamela Fryman, Stephen Lloyd, Chris Harris, Chuck Tatham, Jamie Rhonheimer and Kourtney Kang were executive producers for Twentieth Century Fox Television. The series was created by Carter Bays and Craig Thomas. The show was nominated for 28 Emmy Awards over its nine seasons, ultimately winning nine of them.
