How I Met Your Mother came to an end in the US on March 31st after nine-seasons, but producers have revealed they shot an alternative ending that will appear on the DVD box-set.

Executive producer of the hit comedy, Carter Bays, revealed on Twitter, "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.

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