How I Met Your Mother spinoff series, How I Met Your Father, starring Hilary Duff - as Sophie, the Ted Mosby equivalent and hopeless romantic - began shooting in early September, so when will the highly anticipated Hulu comedy show drop on our screens? Find out below!

The synopsis for HIMYF reads:"Sophie and her close-knit group of friends are in the midst of figuring out who they are, what they want out of life and how to fall in love in the age of dating apps and limitless options"

According to reports, Sophie will be telling her young son the story of how she met his father, in a similarly complicated and long winded story set in 2021.

The original series How I Met Your Mother followed the dating life of unlucky-in-love bachelor Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) in New York City. Cobie SmuldersJason SegelAlyson Hannigan and Neil Patrick Harris rounded out the ensemble cast of pals. The beloved comedy concluded in 2014 after nine seasons. 

When will HIMYF be released on Hulu?

Currently there are no release date updates on the show, but given it has only just begun shooting we'd take a guess that the highly anticipated Hulu series won't be released till sometime in 2022. Considering it usually takes a year for the whole process to be turned around, we'd pledge a guess that we won't see Hilary Duff as Sophia until at least September 2022.
