It seems that CBS simply cannot let go of the same format of having a group of friend hanging out and talking about their lives in a sitcom. Following Friends we were given How I Met Your Mother and since that ended we have been given the new series Friends with Better Lives but CBS are still not done there, with plans for a new How I Met Your Mother spin-off.
As most of you will already be aware, CBS are planning to make the How I Met Your Mother spin-off series How I Met Your Dad and it looks like casting for the series has already begun. As with How I Met Your Mother, new series How I Met Your Dad will have a voice over in every episode and it has been reported that Meg Ryan will voice the mother in the series.
While we will get to hear the voice of Meg Ryan as the mother in How I Met Your Dad, we will never actually see her on the screen, with actress Greta Gerwig playing the younger version of the character. It has also been claimed that the rest of the cast for How I Met Your Dad will include Drew Tarver, Nick D’Agosto, Andrew Santino and Tiya Sircar.
As well as featuring an all new cast for How I Met Your Dad, it has been claimed that we will see a lot of familiar locations from How I Met Your Mother in the new series, while there have also been suggestions that we could see cameo roles coming from some of the stars of original series.
