HILLARY DUFF SHARES HER EXCITEMENT!
In 2014, creators of ‘How I Met Your Mother’, Craig Thomas, Carter Bays and writer Emily Spivey wrote a follow-up series for CBS. It starred Greta Gerwig and Drew Tarver but did not get picked up. Even though the audiences would have liked to see more of the iconic show and its characters, the show did not get picked.
Two and a half years later, Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger created a new version. But since their association with NBC’s hit show ‘This Is Us‘, they were no longer available.
But, finally, the wait of fans got over when it was announced that a HIMYM spin-off was on the way. It will star the famous Hillary Duff as Sophie. She will take on a role similar to Ted’s in the original series. Duff plans to tell her son how she met his father. It means that the identity of the father will remain a mystery till the end. The reboot series will also include her best friends in their 30s and how they find love in New York City in the age of dating apps. The actor was previously hell-bent on getting her show ‘Lizzi McGuire’ revived.
Duff shared her excitement in a press release shared by “Deadline”. She stated that she feels incredibly lucky in her career to play some fantastic characters, and she is excited to take on the role of Sophie. As a big admirer of ‘How I Met Your Mother’, the famous actor was honoured but also a little frightened that the creators of HIMYM would trust her with their baby’s sequel. She went on to say that Isaac and Elizabeth are brilliant and that she couldn’t wait to work with them and all of their talent. She added: “Just fangirling over here getting to join the Hulu Originals and 20th families. I realize these are big shoes to fill, and I am excited to slip my 6 ½’s in there.”
NEW SPOT FOR HILLARY DUFF TO HANG OUT WITH HER FRIENDS ?
The cast of ‘How I Met Your Father’ is still expanding, with Josh Peck recently joining the team, with Chris Lowell, Francia Raisa, Suraj Sharma, and Tom Ainsley. Nothing is currently known about whether ‘How I Met Your Father’ will have any connection to ‘How I Met Your Mother’. However, some new photos for the sets of the reboot have refuted the assumption that the new group of friends would not hang out at the beloved MacLaren’s Pub. It looks like ‘How I Met Your Father’ will choose to have its characters meet in a different, cosier bar, with the never-ending beverages of the original show’s setting. However, the décor from the image seems to follow the theme of ‘Friends‘ Central Perk. While the lack of a return to MacLaren’s Pub is disappointing for many fans, it is allowing ‘How I Met Your Father’ to be different from its original.
