A "How I Met Your Mother" spinoff is in the works, according to Deadline.

There had been chatter of continuing the long-running CBS sitcom following its finale this spring, but now Deadline reports "HIMYM" co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are working with Emily Spivey on "How I Met Your Father."

The proposed spinoff will feature a new group of friends and chronicle a female member's journey to meet her future husband. Deadline reports the new characters could be introduced in the "How I Met Your Mother" series finale. MacLaren's Pub may also be featured on the potential "How I Met Your Mother" spinoff to tie "Mother" with "How I Met Your Father."

Bays, Thomas and Spivey will co-write and executive produce the spinoff.
