How I Met Your Father is already renewed for ‘supersized’ season 2 – HITC – Football, Gaming, Movies, TV, Music
Hulu | Disney+
Running for nine seasons between 2005 and 2014, How I Met Your Mother is regarded as one of the best and most beloved sitcoms of the past few decades and talk of a spin-off began as soon as the final episode aired.
After years of development and one failed pilot, How I Met Your Father began airing on Hulu in the US earlier this year and now, the highly anticipated spin-off has landed on UK screens.
As all episodes are available to binge in one go, fans are already turning their attention to what comes next and whether How I Met Your Father will return for season 2.
Season 1 of How I Met Your Father arrived on Hulu in the US on January 18th, 2022 and UK viewers were treated to all 10 episodes when they became available on Disney+ on May 11th.
Set several years after Ted Mosby and the gang left their New York apartment, the new series tells the story of a romantic photographer named Sophie (Hilary Duff) and the twisting tale of how she met the father of her son.
Alongside her misfit group of friends, Sophie must contend with finding romance in the 21st century in the age of dating apps and seemingly limitless options.
As the season progresses, Sophie encounters some new and familiar faces as she loves, loses and gets into all manner of hijinks.
That’s right, How I Met Your Father fans needn’t worry about the fate of the show as Hulu has already confirmed its renewal for season 2.
The sitcom’s renewal was announced by Hulu back on February 15th, the same day episode 6 aired in the US, showing the streaming service’s faith in the new series.
However, rather than just the 10 episodes we got in season 1, the second instalment will feature a bumper 20 episodes, doubling the length of the season.
In a statement quoted by Deadline, Hulu’s head of scripted content, Jordan Helman said: “Isaac [Aptaker] and Elizabeth’s [Berger] inspired vision for How I Met Your Father has proven to be true appointment viewing that fans cannot get enough of week to week.
“The lives of these characters, as portrayed by the immensely talented cast led by Hilary Duff, are just starting to unfold and we’re thrilled to bring more of this group’s journey to our viewers with a supersized second season.”
No release date for season 2 has been announced at the time of writing but according to the RadioTimes, production on the second instalment is slated to begin in the summer of 2022 which would give us a rough release window of late 2022 or early 2023.
While How I Met Your Father earned a mixed reception from critics when it arrived, the series has proven popular enough with viewers to warrant a second outing and many fans are already taking to social media to hurry season 2 along.
One fan on Twitter wrote: “Okay I need How I Met Your Father season 2 right now.”
While another added: “How I Met Your Father is unironically good and I can’t wait for season 2.”
This fan commented: “How I Met Your Father was not good but also I very badly need season 2 immediately.”
As another said: “I can’t wait for season 2 of How I Met Your Father. That show is so wholesome.”
“I just finished How I Met Your Father season 1. As a huge HIMYM fan, I was a sceptic going in. I love it. I can’t wait for season 2,” commented this fan.
And finally, this Twitter user is planning a rewatch of the original HIMYM before season 2: “How I met your father is good. I’m ready for season 2 and might rewatch how I met your mother because of it.”
How I Met Your Father is available to stream now on Hulu in the US and Disney+ in the UK.
