“As a huge fan of How I Met Your Mother, I’m honoured and even a little nervous that Carter and Craig would trust me with the sequel of their baby,” she adds in a statement, referring to creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas.
So far, we know we’ll be getting 10 episodes on Hulu who released a statement about what we can expect from the show:
“In the near future, Sophie is 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,” it reads in a statement from Hulu, who have confirmed 10 episodes so far.
This is Hilary’s first TV project since wrapping up the final season of Younger.
