Characters of HIMYM Spin-Off HOW I MET YOUR DAD Revealed
With CBS' How I Met Your Mother coming to a close, it's time to meet the new gang.
TVLine has revealed the leading characters of the long-running series' spin-off, aptly titled HOW I MET YOUR DAD. The spin-off comes from HIMYM creators and producers Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, along with Emily Spivey (Up All Night).
Via TVLine, the HIMYD's characters include:
"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."
HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, now in its ninth and final season on CBS, is a comedy about Ted and how he fell in love. This season takes place over the course of Barney and Robin's wedding weekend, when the lives of the gang change dramatically. Ted is about to move to Chicago, Marshall and Lily are about to move to Rome, and Robin and Barney are about to become husband and wife. The series is narrated through flashbacks from the future.
