A ten-episode spinoff from How I Met Your Mother is on its way and, not surprisingly, it’s called How I Met Your Father.
It’s set to star Hilary Duff as a character named Sophie, who tells the story to her son of… well, you can probably guess the next bit.
The creators of the original series, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, are on board in an executive production capacity, and had this to say: “Kids, I’m going to tell you an incredible story: It’s the story of how two writers got lucky enough to make their dream TV show for nine seasons and now get to pass the torch to an inspired new creative team with their own incredible story to tell, the story of How I Met Your Father. We are honoured by their passion and vision, and look forward to helping them tell a legendary new story. (Thanks to all the HIMYM fans out there who waited for it.)”
