A "How I Met Your Mother" sequel series, titled "How I Met Your Father" has been ordered at Hulu, starring Hilary Duff.
According to Variety, the series will see Sophie (Duff) telling her son the story of how she met his father, catapulting her back to the year 2021, where she and her 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.
