Hilary Duff is all set to star in How I Met Your Father, a sequel to HIMYM

Hilary Duff is set to star in a sequel to How I Met Your Mother, but this time it's called How I Met Your Father. The show already has a straight-to-series order for 10 episodes at Hulu. Duff will both produce and play Sophie, the new Ted Mosby. This is Duff's first TV project after wrapping Younger, and it's clear she's excited. She posted a video about the news on Instagram, telling her fans to "suit up," and released a statement along with the news. "I've been incredibly lucky in my career to play some wonderful characters and I'm looking forward to taking on the role of Sophie," she said. "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. Just fangirling over here getting to join the Hulu Originals. I realise these are big shoes to fill and I'm excited to slip my 6 ½'s in there!"
