How I Met Your Father has lined up three potential dads for Hilary Duff’s character.
In a newly released teaser for the Hulu comedy’s midseason return, Sophie sets out to find her biological father with her friends’ help, and two of the candidates appear to be Travis Schuldt (Scrubs) and Clark Gregg (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.)
“It’s a really lovely story because it lets the group come together, and they all rally behind our girl and decide that they’re going to help her with this pretty daunting task of trying to reconnect with your dad in your thirties,” co-showrunner Isaac Aptaker told TVLine during a post mortem Q&A.
How I Met Your Father Season 2B premieres Tuesday, May 23, with a new episode releasing weekly until the two-part finale on Tuesday, July 11.
