hilary duff confirmed how i met your father will tie into the original himym series

The star of How I Met Your Father, Hilary Duff, brings us some exciting news about the upcoming show. The Hulu series will feature ties and even appearances from the original, How I Met Your Mother.

After many failed attempts, in April, Hulu ordered the sequel of the iconic show. How I Met Your Father is still in the early stages, but the show's star, Hilary Duff is already answering the burning question.


HIMYM originally aired for nine seasons, from 2005 to 2014. Despite the unsatisfying ending, the show is considered one of the best sitcoms ever made, and the sequel will tell a similar story, only in reverse.

The Plot Of How I Met Your Father


Duff, who recently finished Younger, another hit show, said:

"I don't want to give it all away and the script is definitely being changed a little bit, but it does tie in."

Of course, it was enough for every fan of the original show to lose their mind. Duff plays Sophie, who is telling her son the story of how she met his father.

The story is not in New York, but in Los Angeles, but just like HIMYM, it will be full of flashbacks, and we can already see the actress channeling Ted Mosby as a narrator.


HIMYM creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, as well as Hilary Duff and Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, are executive producers. The new show is already in good hands.

Duff is looking forward to meeting new TV family:

"There's great characters and I'm going to get to have another on-set family, another TV family. There's so much opportunity for love stories with this show because it's Sophie and then three dudes. So, it's going down that whole rabbit hole of like, well, which one was the father? And you get to like go through all of Sophie's young experience of finding love and dating and what that's like in the modern world."


How I Met Your Father Is Already Secretive

Apart from Duff, we have yet to find out who is in the main cast.

Also, we are waiting for Hulu to give us the date of the premiere, and of course, the first official trailer.

The original cast of HIMYM, including Neil Patrick Harris, Cobie Smulders, Jason Segel, Alyson Hannigan, and Josh Radnor, remains tight-lipped.

One possible tie-in is that Sophie is friends with Ted's daughter. Though, at this stage, anything is possible. But Hilary is raising our excitement, and even if it's half as great as the original, it will be Legen... wait for it...dary!
