A new season of How I Met Your Father is now streaming on Hulu.
Season 2 of the comedy series starring Hilary Duff premiered Tuesday (Jan. 24) on Hulu. The sequel to How I Met Your Mother flips the narrative of its predecessor by focusing on a woman telling her son the story of how she met his father.
Duff stars as Sophie, a hopeless romantic navigating love and friendship in present-day New York City. Chris Lowell, Francia Raisa, Tom Ainsley, Suraj Sharma and Tien Tran play Sophie’s close-knit group of friends.
Kim Cattrall portrays the future version of Sophie who shares the story with her son in the year 2050.
“We know these characters, we feel a little bit more comfortable,” Duff told reporters at this year’s Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour, per ABC News. “We just get more room to play and experience and find these little human bits in the roles. It feels easier to find and a little more secure this time around.”
Unlike the original — where Bob Saget simply narrated but never made an appearance — audiences get to see and hear Cattrall in How I Met Your Father. The series pilot opens with Cattrall calling her son on video chat and sharing the dating stories that led up to her meeting his dad.
“It’s a sequel, so there’s some Easter eggs for the hardcore fans but it’s a new show with new characters that are going on their own adventure,” Duff told Good Morning America last year. “It’s tackling the topics of what it’s like to figure out your life at 30 [and] navigate the world of dating where everything is online.”
