How I Met Your Father Release Date
How I Met Your Father Premise
The show has big boots to fill, but that is not fazing Hilary one bit. Based in New York City, the show will have some parallels with its predecessor as the character of Sophie will be accompanied by her group of friends amid the chaos of her love life.
But not only will Hilary be playing an iconic character, but it is also a step up in her development. She will serve as a producer on the show.
In an interview with Deadline, Hilary is quoted as saying the following, “I’ve been incredibly lucky in my career to play some wonderful characters and I’m looking forward to taking on the role of Sophie. As a huge fan of How I Met Your Mother, I’m honored and even a little nervous that [HIMYM creators] Carter and Craig would trust me with the sequel of their baby.”
Much in the same way, the series is an opportunity for the original creator’s Carter Bays and Craig Thomas to pass on the mantle. An original spin-off had been planned by CBS entitled ‘How I Met Your Dad’ with Greta Gerwig as the show’s lead character. However, the pilot episode failed to materialize into something.
That is why this is a chance for redemption. In a joint statement given to Deadline, Carter and Craig remarked, “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.”
With so much anticipation brewing for the new season, it must deliver. Anything short of success will ultimately lead to comparisons with its predecessor. So what do you think? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
