Hilary Duff is about to turn out to be legen … anticipate it … dary.
The previous teen idol and “Youthful” star has gotten the unlikely position in a gender-swapped sequel to “How I Met Your Mom” on Hulu.
Known as “How I Met Your Father,” the present will observe Sophie (Duff, 33) reminiscing to her son about how she met his father and recounting her pal group’s relationship antics again in 2021, (as informed from a vantage level sooner or later).
The previous present, which ran on CBS from 2005 to 2015, had an identical format, with Bob Saget’s voice narrating a glance again at Ted Mosby’s (Josh Radnor) previous relationship romps and pal group, together with womanizing Barney (Neil Patrick Harris), bold Robin (Cobie Smulders) and couple-goals duo Marshall (Jason Segel) and Lily (Alyson Hannigan). The hit collection was usually modern with its construction, leaping round in time and weaving in long-running jokes.
The brand new collection can be written by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, each of whom wrote and produced for “This Is Us,” in addition to “Love, Simon” and its spinoff, “Love, Victor.”
“As an enormous fan of ‘How I Met Your Mom,’ I’m honored and even slightly nervous that Carter and Craig would belief me with the sequel of their child,” Duff stated in Hulu’s press launch asserting the present. “Isaac and Elizabeth are good, and I can’t wait to work alongside them and all of their genius.”
“Simply fangirling over right here getting to affix the Hulu Originals and 20th households. I understand these are massive sneakers to fill and I’m excited to slide my 6 ½’s in there!”
A lot like “Recreation of Thrones” the collection finale of “How I Met Your Mom” landed like a lead balloon amongst most viewers members as a result of — spoiler alert — the writers thought it will be an important thought to throw within the remaining twist of the mom (Cristin Milioti) dying, whereas Ted finally ends up with Robin.
Apparently, it was extra vital to be “shocking” than to stay as much as the present’s central premise that’s in its title.
“How I Met Your Father” can be produced by Duff and “How I Met Your Mom” creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas. It doesn’t but have an introduced premiere date.
