How I Met Your Mother creators releasing an alternative finale in Season 9 DVD.
After nine long seasons of wondering who the mother of Ted Mosby's children ended up to be, CBS's hit television sitcom How I Met Your Mother came to a close on March 31. The ending, however, was not one that was expected by many HIMYM fans. But creators of the show Craig Thomas and Carter Bays released via Twitter on April 4 that an alternate ending to the HIMYM story will be available.
From Robin and Barney's divorce to the tragic death of the mother, many fans were outraged and taken completely by surprised on the twists that came up in the final episode. According to Thomas and Bays, when deciding on the finale for HIMYM, they were stuck on two different types of endings. Although only one of the scripts were shot, they still have enough footage to shoot what they are calling "Plan B."
The two creators posted on Twitter that their Plan B finale will be available in the Series Box, as well as Season 9 DVD. The release date for the series has not yet been set.
