'How I Met Your Mother' spinoff is happening

Turns out we may get to find out how I met your father after all! 

Nearly three years after the end of How I Met Your Mother, there's a spinoff in the works.

The new pilot will be called How I Met Your Father, and will once again be told from a female perspective, but it's not a typical spinoff, since it has no connection to the original show other the basic premise. Deadline, who first reported the news, described it as a "brand new take on the premise with new characters and new writers."
