'How I Met Your Mother's Upcoming Spinoff Gets a Rewrite

How I Met Your Mother‘s anticipated spinoff series How I Met Your Dad is getting a rewrite.

Three years after 20th Century TV attempted to launch the show’s spinoff with a CBS pilot, the studio is giving it another go, according to Deadline.

The original script was written by HIMYM creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas as well as Emily Spivey.

Then, last season the studio gave it another shot with This Is Us co-executive producers Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger but due to their busy schedule, they were not able to focus on the project.

The studio has now recruited Allison Bennett to create a brand new take on the How I Met Your Father concept.

Although there is no network attached to the show, CBS has expressed interest.
