Haaaaaave you heard about How I Met Your Father?
Seven years after How I Met Your Mother‘s divisive series finale — and 16 years after audiences first met Ted Mosby, Robin Scherbatsky, Marshall Eriksen, Lily Aldrin and Barney Stinson — Hulu has commissioned an offshoot. Hilary Duff is attached as its leading lady, and several key members of HIMYM‘s creative team are back as executive producers, including original series creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas.
