Greta Gerwig Knows The Real Reason Why The "HIMYM" Spinoff Flopped


Posted on

And due to the success of the show, CBS thought it would be a great idea to continue the show's legacy with a spinoff series called How I Met Your Dad, starring Greta Gerwig.


If this is coming as a shock to you, it's probably because the series didn't make it past the pilot episode in 2014. And during a recent interview with Stephen Colbert on the Late Show, Greta revealed why the show didn't work.

"There was a show called How I Met Your Mother. It was a great show. I loved it. Everyone loves it," said Greta, who wrote and directed the new coming-of-age film Lady Bird.

"We shot the pilot and it was so much fun! I loved working on it. And then they take the pilot to Las Vegas to test it (with a focus group)."
