As Ted Mosby’s ‘How I Met Your Mother’ tale for his kids is almost at its end (finally!), creators of the popular sitcom are already geared for a spin off; “How I Met Your Dad”.

Said to be the female equivalent of “How I Met Your Mother”, the new series will star Greta Gerwig as the lead.

Greta Gerwig is a Golden Globe best actress in a comedy nominee for her role in “Frances Ha”. She has also starred in the Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher rom-com, “No Strings Attached”.

Gerwig’s character, Sally, will be a “a female Peter Pan who has never grown up and has no idea of where she’s going in life.”

“How I Met Your Mother” premiered in 2005 and will conclude this year.

After finding nothing in common with her husband of less than a year, the union crumbles and she moves forward for new love with the help of her family and friends.
Premiering in 2005, “How I Met Your Mother” stars Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris and Alyson Hannigan. It is currently in its ninth and final season.

The series finale is set to take place in May this year with the new spin off yet to receive an air date.

The finale is going to be.. Legen-wait for it-dary!
