Hilary Duff and her How I Met Your Father co-stars have revealed the premiere date for the upcoming film.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime announcement.
On November 3rd,
Hilary Duff appeared in a video with her How I Met Your Father co-stars Christopher Lowell, Francia Raisa, Tom Ainsley, Tien Tran, and Suraj Sharma, announcing the highly anticipated show’s premiere date, which is Tuesday, January 17th.
But the cast of HIMYF didn’t just reveal the big news at random—Hilary and her co-stars drew things out for a full 24 seconds.
We’d compare the wait to a slap bet countdown if we weren’t so excited, but we digress.
“Haaave you heard?” the Lizzie McGuire alum said at the start of the clip, referring to the Hulu show’s predecessor, How I Met Your Mother.
“Wait for it!” said Suraj, adding an Easter egg of his own.
“Oh my gosh, just tell them already,” Francia said as viewers awaited the news.
Hilary and Christopher, the co-leads, set up the teaser for the Jan at that time.
We’re as giddy as Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) in a suit shop after the reveal of episode 18!
“We couldn’t keep you waiting any longer…How I Met Your Father is coming January 18, only on @Hulu (hashtag)HIMYF,” the HIMYF Twitter account wrote.
The premiere date comes after the casting announcement that Sex and the City alum Kim Cattrall will play Sophie in the future and serve as the show’s narrator.
HIMYF, like HIMYM, follows Sophie (Hilary and Kim) as she tells her son about how she met his father, transporting viewers back to the year 2021, when Sophie and her friends were still trying to figure out life.
Daniel Augustin, Ashley Reyes, and Josh Peck join the core cast of HIMYF.
There seems to be a lot to look forward to!
Check out the teaser above, and scroll through the gallery below to learn everything we know about the new Hulu show.
Sophie (Hilary Duff) reflects on how she met the love of her life…and the father of her son, years later, following in the footsteps of Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) from How I Met Your Mother.
The Hulu series is also produced by Duff.
Sophie has a lot of friends! Veronica Mars alum Chris Lowell plays Sophie’s close friend Jesse, and Tien Tran plays his sister Ellen, who recently moved to New York after divorcing her husband. Sophie’s impulsive roommate Valentina is played by Francia Rasa of grown-ish.
