The Rainn Wilson, Dwight Schrute spinoff "The Farm". Mad about that because I think it could have been absolutely hilarious, especially if the actress who played Angela who married the Dwight character could have been on there. Could have been like Fawlty Towers (since they ran an inn).

The show was sort of promised and then NBC backed out, me wasnt happy!

"How I Met Your Mother" has had a few attempts at launching a spin-off (companion series) that never happened.

Around Oct. 2013, when HIMYM was ending, it was announced that creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas were looking into expanding the franchise with a "female take" on it.

The pilot for "How I Met Your Dad", starring indie film star Greta Gerwig and narrated by Meg Ryan, wasn't picked up by CBS.




Then in December 2016, they tried again with "This Is Us" writers Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger on "How I Met Your Father". It was to also be from a female's point-of-view and HIMYM creators Bays and Thomas were EPs.

Aptaker and Berger then became co-showrunners on "This Is Us" after it took off and had to put "How I Met Your Father" on hold in March 2017.




Fox chairman Dana Walden then said in August 2017 that they were looking into it again with new writers and that no ideas or concepts from the previous attempts would be carried over.

ďItís one thatís been slowly cooked. If itís the right idea the right execution, weíll take that.Ē

Cool

"Facts Of Life" was going to have "Facts Of Life, The Next Generation" in 1988, but that never materialized. This was alluded to in the series finale episode, with Eastland becoming "co-ed" and Blair becoming headmistress.

Interestingly, this would have been a spinoff of a spinoff.

This could have worked and become more interesting than the original.
