'How I Met Your Dad' Character Scoops Revealed

Posted: Updated:

This week has been a good week for "How I Met Your Mother" fans. Following Monday night's (Jan. 27) 200th episode, which was all about the mother and one of the best "HIMYM" episodes yet, new details have dropped on its spin-off series.

"How I Met Your Dad," which was picked up for a pilot last November, will follow a new story with similar premise to "HIMYM," except from a female perspective.

TV Line got the complete scoop on the "How I Met Your Dad" characters, and we finally have a name for the new Ted: Sally. The spin-off will focus on main character and narrator Sally and her gang of friends. So far, this is what we know about Sally and her friends, courtesy of TV Line:

SALLY | She’s vibrant, messy and unpredictable — a “female Peter Pan who has never grown up and has no idea of where she’s going in life.” She’s thinking of calling it quits with her husband of a year, Gavin. She’ll lean on her circle of friends for advice and support through the inevitable divorce. That circle includes…

JULIET | Sally’s sexy, flamboyant, energetic, party-girl BFF. She runs a successful fashion blog. She’s delighted to learn Sally is ending things with the terminally boring Gavin.

DANNY | Sally’s older gay brother, a Type A, overachieving lawyer whom she shares little in common with. They nonetheless share a tight bond, although Sally’s decision to move in with Danny after her split with Gavin promises to test that bond.

TODD | Danny’s warm, outgoing husband and one of Sally’s closest friends from college. Unlike Danny, Todd welcomes Sally into their home.

FRANK | The head of IT for Juliet’s fashion blog. He’s a hot nerd. He has genuine feelings for Sally, but it’s a one-sided flirtation. At least for the moment.

NARRATOR | It’s Sally from the future. She’s reliving the events of her past to her kids.

Here's to hoping the "How I Met Your Dad" pilot gets picked up for a season so we get more of these characters!

The Huffington Post reached out to CBS for comment, but the request was not yet returned.
