Evidently there could still be more story to tell within the HIMYM universe, though it may take more than just another season to get through it all. Variety has officially confirmed that CBS is meeting with 20th Century Fox TV to discuss a possible spinoff of How I Met Your Mother, which is wrapping up after its ninth season early next year.
The spinoff will put a female spin on the original show, and is tentatively being referred to as How I Met Your Father. The project would presumably center on a group of friends and one woman’s story of how she met her future husband. The spinoff wouldn’t bring back any characters from the original series, though one can imagine that the show would have plenty of cameos and easter eggs to reference the previous series.
A pitch has been written and will include HIMYM creators Carter Bays, Craig Thomas and Emily Spivey.
