Few shows in TV history had quite the fandom and star power of CBS' How I Met Your Mother. With clever gags, heartwarming moments, a phenomenal cast, and plenty of seasons (nine in total) to tell the intertwining stories, it was one of those shows everyone seemed to love. And while it's been a while since the 2014 finale, the series is finally getting the spinoff fans have been wanting for. Naturally, speculation about the upcoming show has come out in full force, and the many theories out there about Hulu's How I Met Your Father would certainly make for one amazing show.
The original series, which premiered in 2005, followed Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) and his pals Marshall (Jason Segel), Lily (Alyson Hannigan), Barney (Neil Patrick Harris), and Robin (Cobie Smulders) as they experienced adulthood in NYC. The 2021 spinoff will follow a similar formula, with Hilary Duff playing the lead role of a woman named Sophie. Sophie's character will mirror Ted's as she tells her son the story of how she met his father.
