How I Met Your Father will be written and executively produced by the creators of This Is Us and Love, Victor, Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger.
Aptaker and Berger dished to Variety about the sequel, saying: “We are beyond excited to be bringing ‘How I Met Your Father’ to Hulu.
“Carter and Craig’s iconic original series revolutionized the half-hour comedy, and we are so honored to be carrying the torch forward for the next generation – and with Hilary Duff no less!
“We can’t wait for audiences to meet Sophie and her crew, and watch them come into their own and find love in modern-day New York City.
“And we hope nobody thinks it’s weird that Bob Saget will be playing old Hilary Duff’s voice."
CBS had previously tried to do a sequel of How I Met Your Mother in 2013 titled How I Met Your Dad but was ultimately never picked up.
