The spinoff, from "HIMYM" creators
With fans at long last about to get the conclusion to the story they were promised nine years ago, their reaction to the idea of a spinoff with a very similar concept was mixed at best. That apathy has been especially strong considering that none of their favorite characters is being planned as part of the new series.
Fan Annalie Tennant wrote the producers on Twitter, begging them, "Please no spin-off. HIMYM is perfect as is."
Stefanie from Indiana opined, "No. No. No. No. No. No. #HIMYM jumped the shark seasons ago. This spin-off will be dead on arrival."
Robbie Henry cautioned, "Rebooting HIMYM as 'How I Met Your Father' is a bad idea. Flogging an already dead and buried horse with that one."
While Chris Monteiro suggested, "I would like to see a spin off called How I Left Your Mother - incredibly dark and full of the joyous adventures of divorce."
But not everyone is skeptical. Fan Akshay Bilolikar from the UK had this to say to the news: "YES YES YES."
