Maybe it was the Twitter explosion, or the petition on Change.org that let How I Met Your Mother creators to respond to their fans but for those that were disappointed in the way the series ended…there is still hope!
Carter Bays took to Twitter to thank fans, “First of all I want to say thank you for the lovely messages from everybody who loved the #HIMYMFinale, If you didn’t like the finale, I guess that happens. We tried something and it didn’t connect with you. I hope we’re still friends.” Bays continued, “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. We only shot one script, but through edit room magic we had two possible outcomes for the series.”
The long and the short of it….Carter says that he stands by the editing, “We chose the ending we chose and we stand by it. But we loved the other version too.” But they are offering some consolation to disgruntled fans, “We’re going to include that version on the Complete Series DVD as an alternate finale to How I Met Your Mother.”
Are you happy that there will be an alternate ending to the finale?
