According to reports, the show will be created by an entirely new team of writers.

About nine months after the last plans for How I Met Your Mother spin-off, How I Met Your Dad seemingly lost steam, chatter about a new show based on the sit-com has appeared on the Internet once again. 

Last year’s project (How I Met Your Dad) was set to have producers of This Is Us, Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger on hand, but This Is Us saw major success and the pair became unavailable as a result.

The chairman of Fox Dana Walden spoke to Deadline about the changes, clarifying that a spin-off is definitely on the cards:

“The studio will try [developing a spinoff] with different writers,” Walden told the site. 

“They will be starting from scratch.

“It’s one that’s been slowly cooked. If it’s the right idea the right execution, we’ll take that,” she said. 

So, while no concrete plans have been made, it definitely sounds like the wheels are in motion and that a new chapter in the world of Ted, Robin, Barney, Lily and Marshall may be in the near future.
