How I Met Your Dad is not slated to air in the new fall schedule of CBS that was announced on Wednesday morning. The HIMYD pilot did not get approval. CBS has officially dropped the 'How I Met Your Dad' series which is a sequel of CBS' hit comedy 'How I Met Your Mom' that aired 20 years ago.
And CBS is long rumored to be working on a sequel of its hit comedy series HIMYM. Previously, it was announced officially that CBS will air HIMYD which is being produced by 20th Century Fox TV. And the creators of the sequel, Craig Thomas and Carter Bays, also presented a pilot of the broadcaster.
However, things didn’t go too well. And CBS did not like the pilot. CBS chief Nina Tassler told reporters yesterday morning while unveiling CBS’s new schedule that the network just didn’t think "certain creative elements" of HIMYD worked out.
The network asked the creators to shoot another pilot. But the creators and producer of the show were not interested in making another pilot version of HIMYD. "I'm heartsick," Tassler said.
But the conversation between CBS and 20th Century Fox TV for HIMYD is not over yet. It might be possible that they would be in talks regarding who will pay the money for the new pilot version. But the current Vulture report suggests that HIMYD creators Bays and Thomas are trying to air their version of HIMYD via another network. 20th Century Fox has not commented on the situation yet.
