On October 30, 2013, Deadline.com reported that CBS is in talks with 20th Century Fox for a female spin-off of the show referred to as How I Met Your Father. From Carter Bays, Craig Thomas and Emily Spivey, it would feature a new group of New York friends and chronicle a female member of the group named Sally's quest to meet her future husband. The new characters would be introduced in the show's series finale. The spin-off will have not contain any of the original characters of the show, and the only link serving between the old group and the new group would be MacLaren's Pub, which will also be featured in the spin-off.
On 15th November, 2013, CBS ordered the show to pilot with the title "How I Met Your Dad". CBS described the show as "a kindred spirit of How I Met Your Mother telling the story from a female point of view, How I Met Your Dad tells a brand-new story with new characters and a new voice at its center." Contrary to the original concept, Craig Thomas confirmed that the new characters will not be introduced in How I Met Your Mother series finale and it will be a standalone show.Carter Bays commented that the new show probably won't be set in MacLaren's and will have a new bar.
