Hilary Duff Introduces HIMYF’s Sophie, Bar Scene
On Wednesday, Hilary Duff went to Instagram and shared four photos from her new show, How I Met Your Father. She wrote, “Hello, I’m Sophie @himyfonhulu.” They are just starting to film the Season 1 10 episodes that will air on Hulu.
Duff is shown sitting at a bar that looks a lot like it is from the set of How I Met Your Mother. The dark wood looks iconic, and as does the pretzels on the table.
What Is How I Met Your Father About?
In How I Met Your Father, Hilary Duff will play Sophie. The show tells her story of navigating the 2021 dating scene. Her dates will eventually lead up to her meeting her baby daddy. Besides showing a woman’s point of view, the location is also different. How I Met Your Mother took place in New York City. In this new series, they are on the west coast.
The other characters on the show include Jesse (Chris Lowell), Valentina (Francia Raisa), Charlie (Tom Ainsley), Ellen (Tien Tran), and Sid (Suraj Sharma). Daniel Augustin has just been added as a Tinder date. However, his character has not been revealed.
In addition, some big names are behind this series. This Is Us showrunners, Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, along with the original HIMYM creators, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas. Moreover, Hilary Duff will also be a producer of the Hulu series.
The original series starred Josh Radnor (Ted Mosby), Cobie Smulders (Robin Scherbatsky), Neil Patrick Harris (Barney Stinson), Jason Segel (Marshall Erikson), and Alyson Hannigan (Lily Aldrin). It ran on CBS from 2005-2014.
Will Hilary Duff Star In Younger Spinoff?
Currently, Younger Season 7 is airing on TVLand on Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. Eastern. Back in the spring of 2020, there was talk about a Younger Spinoff, starring Hilary Duff. This was going to follow Kelsey as she went to California, moving on from the NYC publishing world. The premise of the spinoff story was like a “female Entourage.” This time, it would be set in Los Angeles, far from Liza Miller, Millennial, and the current world of Brooklyn and Manhattan that is featured and beloved in Younger.
Unfortunately, according to Variety, now that Hilary Duff is doing How I Met Your Father, that Younger spinoff is now dead. The publication briefly explained that although the spinoff was in its early stages, nothing was firmly in place.
There is currently no How I Met Your Father Hulu release date. However, Hilary Duff fans can see her as Kelsey Peters on Younger, Season 7, on TVLand Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. Eastern.
