CBS Orders Pilot for "How I Met Your Mother" Spin-off

Posted Saturday November 16, 2013 12:43 PM GMT

Hoping to capture the success of the long-running series, "How I Met Your Mother," a spinoff entitled, "How I Met Your Dad" has been picked up by CBS.

"Mother" co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas join Emily Spivey to write the pilot script and executive produce the show.

Fans won't get to reunite with their old pals from the original (including Neil Patrick Harris, Cobie Smulders, Jason Segel, and Alyson Hannigan) as the show will center on a new female lead with her own set of friends.

However, there's still time to enjoy "How I Met Your Mother" which is currently airing its ninth and final season on CBS.
