Earlier this week, Disney announced casting details on an upcoming Hulu/Star Original series, “How I Met Your Father”, which is a spin-off from the hit comedy series “How I Met Your Mother” and will star Hilary Duff and Chris Lowell.
The series is set in the near future and sees Sophie (Hilary Duff) telling her son the story of how she met his father: a story that catapults us back to the year 2021, where Sophie and her close-knit group of friends 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.
Deadline has reported that Brandon Michael Hall will also be appearing in a key recurring role in the series. He has previously starred in “God Friended Me” and “The Mayor”. In the new series, he will play Ian. Handsome, smart, funny, Ian is Sophie’s Tinder match who finally meets her in person for the first time.
Also appearing in the show will be Francia Raisa (Grown-ish), Tom Ainsley (Versailles), Tien Tran (Space Force) and Suraj Sharma (God Friended Me).
The series has been given a straight to series order at Hulu, and with 20th Television creating the show, it’ll be heading to Disney+ internationally as a Star Original.
