After rumored reports of the How I Met Your Mother spinoff, How I Met Your Father, CBS has given a pilot order to the show, but it has been renamed How I Met Your Dad.

As expected, the show will be told from a female’s point of view. How I Met Your Mother creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas took to Twitter last night to clear up other misconceptions about the show and introduce a third creator for HIMYD, Up All Night creator, Emily Spivey.

It should ease HIMYM fan’s worries that the two shows will not be closely entertained, and thus, ultimately HIMYD will not be linked to any HIMYM plot lines.

Despite all this news about How I Met Your Dad, it is important to remember we’re still in the middle of HIMYM season 9.

Do you think it will be easy to watch How I Met Your Dad knowing it is an entirely different show – new characters, plots, and settings – even if the premise is similar?

We’ll keep you updated as this show continues to develop over the next few months. While it may be hard to say goodbye to the HIMYM gang in May, the creators, writers and producers behind HIMYM are fantastic storytellers and we sure hope HIMYD will be just as entertaining to watch next fall.
