Future Sophie (Kim Cattrall) promised us in the How I Met Your Father pilot that Present Sophie (Hilary Duff) would hook up with a lot of dudes before settling down with the father of her future son. And it looks like the show will make good on that promise!
Hulu just gave the green light to a second, 20-episode season of the sitcom, which follows the dating adventures of twenty- and thirty-something New Yorkers in the age of Tinder.
“[Series writers] Isaac [Aptaker] and Elizabeth [Berger]’s inspired vision for How I Met Your Father has proven to be true appointment viewing that fans cannot get enough of week to week. The lives of these characters, as portrayed by the immensely talented cast led by Hilary Duff, are just starting to unfold and we’re thrilled to bring more of this group’s journey to our viewers with a supersized second season,” Jordan Helman, Head of Scripted Content, Hulu Originals, told Deadline in February 2022.
Here’s everything we know about what’s next:
The core cast consists of Duff, Francia Raisa as her roommate Valentina, Tom Ainsley as Valentina’s British beau Charlie, Chris Lowell as new friend Jesse, Tien Tran as Jesse’s sister Ellen, and Suraj Sharma as Sid, Jesse’s bestie (and the owner of the bar where the gang hangs).
In season 1, we also met Meredith (Leighton Meester), who broke Jesse’s heart; Ian (Daniel Augustin), Sophie’s One That Got Away; Drew (Josh Peck), a nice guy love interest for Sophie who is also Jesse’s boss; and Hannah (Ashley Reyes), Sid’s long-distance fiancée.
More dates, duh!
No idea, but we’ll keep you posted when we know.
This post will be updated as more information is revealed.
