The cult series “How I Met Your Mother” is one of those series that hardly anyone has missed: In a total of nine seasons, leading actor Josh Radnor, in the role of the New York romantic Ted Mosby, tells his two children about his single time in the huge city and how he fell head over heels in love with her mother – at least that was the real premise. In the period from 2005 to the last season, which aired in 2014, the focus shifted more and more to the romance between Ted and the news anchor Robin Scherbatsky, played by Cobie Smulders.
The successful series of television station CBS about the iconic clique, completed by Marshall (Jason Segel), Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and fan favorite Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) reached such a great hype in the late 2000s that it often had a similar status is ascribed to the 90s phenomenon “Friends”. A possible spin-off has been under discussion for a long time, but it never really worked out – until now!
US streaming provider Hulu has finally made it known: The first season of the series has already been ordered. According to Variety the leading actress has also been determined: Ex-Disney star Hilary Duff. Duff owed her breakthrough to the Disney Channel series “Lizzie McGuire”. In recent years Duff has also appeared in series such as “Gossip Girl”, “Two and a Half Men” and “Community”. Since 2015 she has also been part of the main cast of the series “Younger”.
What is it about? In the spin-off, Hilary Duff takes on the role of the young mother Sophie, who, like Ted in the original, reports on her single time and how the great love with the children’s father began. The actual action, however, focuses on the here and now. Sophie is of course also supported by a loyal group of friends, which actors and actresses will embody the clique is not yet known. So, unsurprisingly, the cornerstones of the series will be based on the original series.
A common accusation that HIMYM (How I Met Your Mother) has to put up with is that the show has “aged badly”. With How I Met Your Father there is the chance to tackle fresh topics. According to the makers, dating apps and Co. are a big topic. In addition, it has been confirmed that series creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are also on board – so it could be really good. We don’t know if there will be any overlap with the original, but it’s hard to imagine that the team behind the series will miss this opportunity.
When the series will be released is currently not clear, but what we do know: The first season consists of a total of 10 episodes. As soon as there is more information, you will find out from us.
