The central concept behind the hit CBS series How I Met Your Mother returns in the spin-off (of sorts) How I Met Your Father. While the original series concluded in 2014, a couple of attempts to spin off the plot – a love story told entirely in flashback with a mystery hook – failed to take off. In 2014, CBS canceled its spinoff series “How I Met Your Dad,” starring Greta Gerwig after filming a pilot. In 2016, the idea of a female-starring spinoff was revived, but it did not take off.
