Since “How I Met Your Mother” came to an end seven years ago, many have noticed the absence on their televisions and screens. They had grown fond of the characters and the story of how Ted Mosby had met the woman of his dreams, the perfect match, and the mother of his children. Since then, there has been speculation with a sequel, but it came to nothing for a time.
Hilary Duff will be the main star of “How I Met Your Father”, the new spin-off of “How I Met Your Mother”, one of the most famous sitcoms of the 90s and the 2000s. As already announced, the series will premiere on Hulu and does not have a release date yet, but we are sure that it is in full swing after the funny photo that the actress published.
“Who is ready for us? We may or may not be sitting in front of a certain person’s apartment,” wrote the actress known for playing Lizzie McGuire on the Disney Channel show of the same name. The photo shows her on the filming set of the series with Francia Raisa, Chris Lowell, Brandon Micheal Hall, Tom Ainsley, Tien Tran and Suraj Sharma.
In this spin-off, Duff will play Sophie and tell her son how he met his father. The official synopsis anticipates: “It is set in the near future in which Sophie tells her son the story of how he met his father: a story that catapults us to the year 2021, where Sophie and her group of close friends are in the time to find out who they are, what they want out of life, and how to fall in love in the age of unlimited dating apps and options.”
In her portrayal of this character, Hilary Duff also found a political focus: “I knew that I was the one to give life to Sophie and share the feminine point of view in this legendary show.”
The Change In Life
Duff is part of the series “Younger”, in which she has played Kelsey Peters for six seasons: “After spending so much time on a show with people you love, it’s always hard to say goodbye permanently. I’m not ready for that. I finished”. Anyway, she was open to being part of a program like “How I Met Your Father” since it is filmed in Los Angeles, where she currently lives.
Hilary Duff currently leads a very active family life. In March 2021, she became a mother for the third time and for the second time with her partner Matthew Koma.
