'How I Met Your Dad' Might Get a Second Chance in the 2015-2016 Season

Despite CBS passing on the How I Met Your Mother spinoff starring Greta Gerwig back in May, TVLine reports that while HIMYD is dead, it'll get another shot at joining the network lineup next season. According to an insider, HIMYD co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas "remain invested" in making the spinoff happen and will have an opportunity to redevelop the project for the 2015-2016 season, though it will most likely not include Greta Gerwig or narration by Meg Ryan.

UPDATE: As it seems to be the case with any HIMYD-related news lately, it turns out this report is false. Bays and Thomas both took to Twitter [...]

Meg Ryan Will Narrate 'HIMYD'

How I Met Your Dad has found its narrator. The How I Met Your Mother spinoff, which CBS has ordered as a pilot, will be narrated by Meg Ryan, Deadline reports.

Just like how Bob Saget narrated HIMYM as an older version of Josh Radnor's character, Meg Ryan will narrate HIMYD as an older version of the lead character, who will be played by Greta Gerwig. The cast for the pilot also includes Andrew Santino, Drew Tarver, Nick D’Agosto, Tiya Sircar, and Workaholics' Anders Holm in a potentially recurring role.

CBS Is Making That HIMYM Spinoff, 'How I Met Your Dad'

A few weeks after the idea was first revealed, CBS has decided to spinoff their hit sitcom How I Met Your Mother. A pilot has been ordered for How I Met Your Dad, to be written and executive produced by HIMYM creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas and Up All Night creator Emily Spivey. As the title suggests, the show will follow a single woman telling the story of meeting her children's future father.

Unlike most spinoffs, which feature an established character in a new setting, this show will feature none of HIMYM's characters or settings. The pilot for HIMYD will be a stand-alone episode, rather than a back-door pilot [...]

CBS Passes on 'HIMYD' and Gives 'Two and a Half Men' Its Final Season

Co-created and executive produced by Chuck Lorre and Lee Aronsohn, Two and a Half Men premiered on the network back in 2003 and has faced several road bumps between Charlie Sheen getting fired in 2011 and Angus T.
