Fan Favourite Sitcom ‘How I Met Your Mother’ Gets Spin-Off Series Starring Hillary Duff & Josh Peck
Every zillennial is familiar with the ever so popular sitcom series, How I Met Your Mother (HIMYM) which launched the careers of the main leads Josh Radnor, Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Segel, Alyson Hannigan and Cobie Smulders.
It also caused the world to fall in love with Cristin Milioti who was later introduced as the titular Mother.
With a show as influential and impactful to pop culture as HIMYM, rebooting or spinning it into a new series entirely comes with grave responsibility.
After the series ended in 2014, its throngs of fans were apprehensive about the upcoming series spin-off, How I Met Your Father but after seeing the cast, some were willing to give it a chance.
The loveable Hillary Duff plays Sophie, who is our new Ted Mosby in the spin-off series, to the excitement of all Gen Z and millenials since she was endearingly known for her iconic character, Lizzie McGuire.
The Robin to her Ted will be played by Josh Peck, best known for his role in the Nickelodeon hit series, Drake & Josh.
For fans of the show, you’ll know that the series is essentially a narration by Ted to his kids on how he met their mother. The same goes for the new spin-off and the older Sophie will be played by the vivacious Kim Cattrall of Sex and The City fame.
The series is currently available to stream on Hulu and the reviews have so far been very polarising.
But in our usual fashion, we’d like you to check it out and judge it yourself!
