HIMYM Spin-off: Hilary Duff’s How I Met Your Father
The series has been co-created and produced by Isaan Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, who have previously worked together in the shows This Is Us and Love, Victor. The creators of the original series, How I Met You Mother, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, will also be co-producing the show. Along with starring in the show, Hilary Duff will also produce, with Adam Londy serving as co-executive producer. 20th Television will produce the new series as it did with the original.
What will How I Met Your Father be about?
According to Variety, the series is set to stream on Hulu. In the spin-off series, Sophie (Hilary Duff), in the near future, is telling her son the story of how she met his father: a story that catapults us back to the year 2021 where Sophie and her close-knit group of friends are in the midst of figuring out who they are, what they want out of life, and how to fall in love in the age of dating apps and limitless options.
“I’ve been incredibly lucky in my career to play some wonderful characters and I’m looking forward to taking on the role of Sophie,” said Duff. “As a huge fan of ‘How I Met Your Mother,’ I’m honored and even a little nervous that Carter and Craig would trust me with the sequel of their baby. Isaac and Elizabeth are brilliant, and I can’t wait to work alongside them and all of their genius. Just fangirling over here getting to join the Hulu Originals and 20th families. I realize these are big shoes to fill and I’m excited to slip my 6 ½’s in there!”
“We are beyond excited to be bringing ‘How I Met Your Father’ to Hulu,” said Aptaker and Berger. “Carter and Craig’s iconic original series revolutionised the half-hour comedy, and we are so honoured to be carrying the torch forward for the next generation – and with Hilary Duff no less! We can’t wait for audiences to meet Sophie and her crew, and watch them come into their own and find love in modern-day New York City. And we hope nobody thinks it’s weird that Bob Saget will be playing old Hilary Duff’s voice.”
“How I Met Your Mother” is one of the most famous sitcoms, and it aired on CBS for nine seasons from 2005-2014. The series starred Josh Radnor, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Segel, and Alyson Hannigan. Bob Saget was an older version of Josh Radnor’s character, Ted Mosby, and provided the voice of the narrator.
Hilary Duff was last seen in the movie The Haunting Of Sharon Tate in 2019, and we are excited to see her in action in one of the most awaited sequel series!
