The cast of How I Met Your Mother Spin-off How I Met Your Father has been revealed in a new photo. Last Thursday, the series, which will star Hilary Duff as lead character Sophie, released a photo of the entire core cast.
According to Variety, the photo features Duff, Chris Lowell (who plays Jesse), Francia Raisa (who plays Valentina), Tom Ainsley (who plays Charlie), Tien Tran (who plays Ellen), and Suraj Sharma (who portrays Sid).
How I Met Your Father will follow the concept of the original program, with Sophie spending the whole season telling her son the tale of how she met his father.
According to the show’s synopsis, the group “are in the midst of figuring out who they are, what they want out of life, and how to fall in love in the age of dating apps and limitless options.”
Kim Cattrall was just introduced as the future version of Duff’s character Sophie. The series was conceived by co-showrunners Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger of This Is Us, with Carter Bays and Craig Thomas of How I Met Your Mother serving as producers.
Isaac and Elizabeth put out a statement shortly after the show’s announcement:
“Carter and Craig’s iconic original series revolutionized the half-hour comedy, and we are so honored to be carrying the torch forward for the next generation – and with Hilary Duff no less!
“We can’t wait for audiences to meet Sophie and her crew, and watch them come into their own and find love in modern-day New York City.
The 10-episode series will debut on Hulu in 2022.
