Mere weeks stand between viewers and How I Met Your Father‘s arrival as Hulu unveiled the official premiere date for the How I Met Your Mother spinoff.
Beginning Tuesday, January 18, 2022, fans can tune in to stream the series starring Hilary Duff as Sophie, who is telling her son the story of how she met his father. Set primarily in 2021, How I Met Your Father‘s action focuses mainly on Sophie and her friends who are in the process of figuring out who they are.
A close-knit group like the pals in CBS’s former hit, they’ll work on finding out what they want out of life as well as face the challenge of falling in love in the age of dating apps and limitless options. The show’s premiere date was made in a special video message from the cast which along with Duff includes Christopher Lowell, Francia Raisa, Tom Ainsley, Tien Tran, and Suraj Sharma.
“Have you heard?” Duff asks, beginning the message which sees her co-stars continue to tell viewers to “wait for it” until they finally reveal the big news. The fun video, below, is just a taste of what viewers will be able to expect from the comedy written by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger.
