The Mother played by Cristin Milioti

You read it right, after the final season of How I Met Your Mother there would be a spin-off series based on the original show and it’s titled How I Met Your Dad. CBS had confirmed that creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas together with Up All Night creator Emily Spivey are developing the storyline for How I Met Your Dad.


Creator Carter Bays’ tweet confirming the title of the new show.

How I Met Your Dad would now be the Mother’s (Cristin Milioti) side of the story and told from her perspective. The show would feature a new cast at a new bar and would be taking the place of the original HIMYM group. Carter Bays stated that the cast of How I Met Your Dad would not be introduced at the season finale of HIMYM but hinted that some of the characters may appear as cameos or surprise guest appearances.

Definitely fans (am a big fan myself!)of HIMYM would be delighted to know what the story is from the mother’s side. It would be our chance to know her more and to know if Ted is really telling the truth. Haha. HIMYM is scheduled to finish by May of 2014. No schedule had been provided for How I Met Your Dad but it may follow short after HIMYM had ended.
