The ‘How I Met Your Mother’ series finale divided fans who either loved or hated the shocking ending. And now the haters are joining forces on Change.org to demand a do-over!

If you’re among the many How I Met Your Mother  fans who are outraged over the long-running series’ final episode, you may be in luck. There’s a new petition on the website Change.org that’s calling for CBS to re-shoot the ending, and it already has more than 5,000 signatures!

‘How I Met Your Mother’ Ending Petition — Fans Want To Officially Change Finale

We’ve seen all kinds of petitions online, but this is a first! Disgruntled fans of How I Met Your Mother are so furious over the way the nine-year series ended that they’re gathering signatures to petition producers of the show to change the ending.

Saying goodbye to Marshall (Jason Segel), Lily (Alyson Hannigan), Barney (Neil Patrick Harris), Ted (Josh Radnor) and Robin (Cobie Smulders) was hard enough. But it looks like finding out that The Mother (Cristin Milioti) was actually dead, and that Robin was the real love of Ted’s life all along, was just too much for some fans to take.

‘How I Met Your Mother’: Fan-Made Alternate Ending Cuts Out Controversial Finale

We love that HIMYM fans are so committed to the show and its characters that they’re willing to sign a petition online to demand a new ending.

We’ll have to wait and see if CBS will cave to the pressure and shoot a new episode (probably not), but until then there’s always this fan-made alternate ending that completely ignores the fact that Ted ended up with Robin.

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you happy with the way the show ended or are you going to sign the petition? Let us know!
