How I Met Your Mother spin-off gets a writer

Third time lucky for ‘How I Met Your Mother’ spinoff

Third time lucky for ‘How I Met Your Mother’ spinoff

As we previously reported, the spin-off for How I Met Your Mother, called How I Met Your Father, is still in the works.

How I Met Your Father has found a new writer. 20th Century TV has tapped You're the Worst's Allison Bennett to pen the upcoming series based on the studio's long-running comedy that wrapped in 2014.

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 first, How I Met Your Dad, hailed from HIMYM co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas along with former SNL writer Emily Spivey. In 2016, Elizabeth Berger and Isaac Aptaker were hired to write a new script, but the plan was put on hold after they were made showrunners of This Is Us.

Bennett had been marked for consideration earlier this year when 20th Century TV's took on the spin-off idea once more. Fox is apparently also interested, as chairman Dana Walden said the network's consideration for the How I Met Your Mother spin-off is an idea that "been slowly cooked". She served as a co-producer on the most recent season and an executive story editor on the Hulu animated comedy The Awesomes before that. It's part of Bennett's overall deal that she signed in April. "She is completely original, hilariously amusing and a big, big talent". Deadline reports that the series "incorporates some of Bennett's personal experiences".
