The 'How I Met Your Mother' DVD collection will feature a different ending

However, after the beloved sitcom's final episode was over, not all fans were satisfied, but not to worry as an alternative ending will be made available in the near future.

The executive producer of 'HIMYM', announced on Friday (April 4th) that the show's final episode does have another ending and it will be featured on the complete DVD collection.

"16 days ago today we were in the HIMYM edit room, trying to decide between two very different endings," Bays wrote on Twitter. "We only shot one script, but through edit room magic we had two possible outcomes for the series."f

"We chose the ending we chose and we stand by it. But we loved the other version too," he continued. "We're going to include that version on the Complete Series DVD as an alternate finale to How I Met Your Mother."

The 'How I Met Your Mother' finale received a backlash off disgruntled fans after the show wrapped up the stories of Marshall (Jason Segel), Lily (Alyson Hannigan), Robin (Cobie Smulders), Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and Ted (Josh Radnor).

The shocking moments occurred when it was revealed that 'The Mother', whose name is Tracy McConnell, fell ill and died of an unspecified condition, then six years later Ted retells the story to his children in 2030.
