Haaaaaaaave you met Sally?

No, and you probably won’t, since CBS has passed on their “How I Met Your Dad” project.

E! News reports that the Eye Network will not move forward with the “How I Met Your Mother” follow-up.

Greta Gerwig would have starred as Sally, who was looking for love, with Meg Ryan stepping in as narration a la Bob Saget in “HIMYM.”

“I’m heartsick,” CBS’s Nina Tassler told the press (via E! News). “We love this brand and we love this show, but it didn’t work out.”

The show’s creators, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, will reportedly shop the project to other networks after declining to remake the pilot for CBS brass.

This was the only spinoff the network opted not to pick up to series this development season, after greenlighting “CSI: Cyber” and “NCIS: New Orleans.”

Were you hoping for “HIMYD” or are you still angry about that “Mother” finale?
