The day has come when we’ll finally get to see the other side of story. Streaming service Hulu has announced on Wednesday that it has green-signalled a 10-episode series order for How I Met Your Father, a much-awaited sequel to hit series How I Met Your Mother. The upcoming sequel will cast Hilary Duff in the lead role, reported Entertainment Weekly.
Set in the future, How I Met Your Father will narrate the story of Sophie (Duff) telling her son how she met his father in 2021, while she and her close friends figure out life, what they wanted to become and falling in love in the era of dating applications and endless options.
How I Met Your Father is being helmed by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, who are best known for the series called This Is Us. The original team of How I Met Your Mother, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas will also co-produce along Aptaker and Berger. The lead actor, Duff is also one of the producers for the show.
Actual spinoff rumours and speculations started immediately after How I Met Your Mother ended in 2014. Then, the sequel was called How I Met Your Dad and starred Greta Gerwig in the lead role. However, CBS did not seem to like the pilot, which is why the retooling delayed even further.
This sequel will also offer new opportunities for the Cinderella Story star that recently went through a strange experience with producing a Lizzie McGuire sequel for Disney+ that fell apart due to creative differences.
