This is not a joke! Two of our favorite things combined together! Hilary Duff and “How I Met Your Mother” are back, but with a little spin off. The talented actress will now be the star of Hulu´s new show “How I Met Your Father”. The streamer has given the sequel series a 10-episode order with Aptaker and Berger back as creators, writers and exec producers.
Hilary Duff stars as Sophie, who stars the series by telling her son the story of how she met his father, just as how Ted Mosby did in the original series. The plot starts in 2021 where Sophie and her group of friends are trying to figure out who they are and what will be of their lives while scrolling through dating apps together.
Craig Erwich, president of Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment, said that “How I Met Your Mother” is one of the most innovative and beloved comedies on TV. Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, the creators, have an inspired take on this new version that honors what Carter Bays and Craig Thomas created with original franchise. The “How I Met Your Father” writers trust a lot the selection of Hilary Duff as the star of the series because of her passion and infectious energy.
Isaac Aptaker said “We are beyond excited to be bringing How I Met Your Father to Hulu. Carter and Craig’s iconic original series revolutionized the half-hour comedy, and we are so honored 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”.
Hilary Duff added “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. 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”.
Everyone loves and remembers Hilary Duff for her iconic character “Lizzie McGuire” transmitted by Disney Channel in the early 2000´s. Therefore, a whole generation who grew up with the TV Show “Lizzie McGuire” and early adulthood with “How I Met Your Mother” cannot wait for. Thus, enjoy and watch one the most iconic scenes from “The Lizzie McGuire Movie”.
