MANILA, Philippines – This time, we’ll meet the mother, while the identity of the dad remains a mystery. 

Actress Greta Gerwig has been cast in the lead in new show How I Met Your Dad, a spin-off from the concept of How I Met Your Mother, reported TVLine

The actress will play Sally, a young married woman who quickly realizes that she and her husband are not a great match. According to reports, the breakup will be inevitable, and will jumpstart Sally’s journey towards meeting the dad. 

Other characters include Sally’s brother, his partner, Sally’s best friend, and her best friend’s colleague. 

Gerwig was recently nominated for Best Actress in a musical or comedy for Frances Ha, though she lost out to American Hustle’s Amy Adams.
