‘How I Met Your Mother’ Revival Under Consideration at FOX

How I Met Your Mother Revival FOX
CBS / 20th Century Fox TV

No one would argue that How I Met Your Mother was thoroughly (and painfully) concluded over nine seasons, so much so that CBS thought better of continuing the franchise with a spinoff. Well, in case you needed to know what Ted, Robin, Barney, Marshall and Lily have been up to in the last three years, FOX is at least entertaining the idea of a revival.

The tidbit came in an Upfront conference call with FOX boss Dana Walden, who suggested that she’d support 20th Century Fox Television and the cast if they were game for a revival in the near future (h/t Deadline):

I hope we will have an opportunity to revisit these characters and tell these stories if (the creators and stars) have the desire to do it. It’s a beloved show that still continues to be popular all over the world.

That said, creator-producers Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are occupied with a production deal at Sony TV, to say nothing of the cast’s other projects. Josh Radnor’s Rise was recently taken to series at NBC, while Neil Patrick Harris and Cobie Smulders have Netflix’s Series of Unfortunate Events and Friends From College, atop Jason Segel or Alyson Hannigan’s availability.

Even a second attempt to get a female-lead spiritual successor to How I Met Your Mother was shelved when writers Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger were promoted on This Is Us full-time. It may just have been passing thought from Walden, but what might a How I Met Your Mother revival even look like?
