Following the huge success of the hit CBS comedy series How I Met Your Mother, it has been confirmed that a spin-off series titled How I Met Your Dad is in the works. How I Met Your Dad will be brought to us by the How I Met Your Mother creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas and it looks like the guys are already looking at casting the new series.
While it is expected that much of the format of How I Met Your Dad will be very similar to that of How I Met Your Mother, there is obviously going to be one big difference. Instead of having Ted (Josh Radnor), or any male for that matter, telling of how they met the love of their lives, How I Met Your Dad will instead be led by a female character and star.
There have now been a number of rumours about which actress will play the lead in How I Met Your Dad, with recent suggestions claiming that Craig Thomas and Carter Bays are looking to get Lyndsy Fonseca on board for the spin-off. As most of you will be well aware, Lyndsy plays the role of Ted's daughter in How I Met Your Mother, so it would be a great way to keep the spirit of that show alive.
While nothing has yet been confirmed about the casting of How I Met Your Dad, having Lyndsy Fonseca would be a fantastic piece of casting, opening the door to cameo appearances from the stars of How I Met Your Mother. Watch this space!
