NEW YORK, April 6 (UPI) -- How I Met Your Mother producers plan to release an alternate ending to the show that may give fans closure.

The hit sitcom came to a close on March 31 after a nine-season, 208-episode run. The show's finale left many fans upset after the episode revealed that the Mother, Tracy McConnell, has been dead for six years by the time of the story. In addition, the tale that Ted tells his children about their mother leads up to him asking if they are okay with him dating their "Aunt" Robin.

Series co-creator and executive producer Carter Bays took to his Twitter on Friday to address the finale, and revealed there were actually two endings considered for the final episode.

Bays continued that the team "chose the ending we chose and...stand by it," but said the alternate ending will be included on the complete series DVD set. The producer did not give any hints about the alternate content, so it remains to be seen if the other ending will sate upset fans.

The complete How I Met Your Mother DVD set will go on sale sometime this fall.
