A ‘How I Met Your Mother’ Sequel?!
Remember how we used to pull all-nighters to binge watch How I Met Your Mother? Nobody could resist witnessing Barney Stinson’s legendary plans, Ted and Robin’s on-and-off relationship and Marshall and Lily’s flawless love life. But why dwell on the past when you could re-live it all over again? No, we’re not talking about watching the show for the hundredth time. The HIMYM gang is actually reuniting at MacLaren’s for a spin-off series! After nine amazing seasons of the comedy show, we thought they had called it quits for good, but we were completely wrong (thank goodness).
However, this is not the first time that a spinoff was proposed; 20th Century Fox TV tried to gender-swap the original cast in a similar series called ‘How I Met Your Dad’ and starring Greta Gerwig and Meg Ryan, but the cast were no longer available. Here we are, three years later, and they’re still trying to bring it back… “They will be starting from scratch,” Fox Chairman Dana Walden told Deadline. “It’s one that’s been slowly cooked. If it’s the right idea, the right execution, we’ll take that.”
