How I Met Your Father Edit

In a dramatic fashion, a character was revealed to have a baby and in seasons 5, 6 and 7 the story of how the character met the father is eventually revealed in the final two-parter in season 7.

Thanks to high reception and ratings, ETV suggested the possibility of the outcome of the "Degrassi-HIMYF" storyline. It is one of the many pilot ideas for a spin-off of some sort of the original 2021 class, as promised by ETV for at least 13 episodes. ETV later stated that they had received 9 proposals by the Degrassi producers and an additional 79 from public; this which would be whittled down by both the producers and ETV to find the most suitable spin-off. ETV later announced that they and the producers had whittled down the number to 17, with HIMYF still in the running; four of 17 will be ordered a pilot with one being ordered to series.

However, the Degrassi producers stated that they had took a liking to many of the ideas, and that they would "definitely" incorporate "a few episodes" to show other characters, in the spin-off.
