The creators of How I Met Your Mother have confirmed news of a sitcom spin-off on Twitter

There is exciting news afoot, How I Met Your Mother fans… 


You may be devastated that Ted, Lily, Marshall, Robin and Barney only have limited time left on our screens, but you can put away those tissues. It seems How I Met Your Father is actually set to become a reality.

The co-creator of HIMYM, Carter Bays, has sent a series of intruging statements out into the Twittersphere…

Oh. And it’s not actually HIMYF, apparently. It’s How I Met Your Dad.

Craig Thomas, Bays’ co-creator, also took to Twitter, thanking excited fans of HIMYM for their support.

As did Bays and Thomas’ new writing companion Emily Spivey, who is known for her work on Up All Night and Saturday Night Live.

How I Met Your Mother stars Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, Alyson Hannigan and Neil Patrick Harris.

The show, which premiered on US network CBS in 2005, chronicles the love life of lead character Ted as he searches for the woman who will one day be the mother of his children. The ninth and final series is currently broadcasting in America and will follow in the UK on E4.
