'How I Met Your Mother' Creator Confirms Alternate Ending Will Be Released
If you were upset over the ending to How I Met Your Mother, you may be happy to know that an alternate ending is coming soon.
Series co-creator Carter Bays revealed days ago on Twitter there were two endings and one was left on the cutting room floor in favor of the one that went to air.
So anyway, here's a bit of news: 16 days ago today we were in the HIMYM edit room, trying to decide between two very different endings.— Carter Bays (@CarterBays) April 4, 2014
We only shot one script, but through edit room magic we had two possible outcomes for the series.— Carter Bays (@CarterBays) April 4, 2014
We chose the ending we chose and we stand by it. But we loved the other version too.— Carter Bays (@CarterBays) April 4, 2014
Bays then said the alternate ending to the series is one of the many extra features included in the season 9 DVD set.
Update for those who've been asking: Alt #himym ending will be on s9 DVD and also in the series box set.— Carter Bays (@CarterBays) April 5, 2014
Will fans like the alternate ending any more than the one that was aired? Probably not, in all honesty (you can't please everyone). But at least they are trying.
