How I Met Your Father Canceled at Hulu
How I Met Your Father has been canceled by Hulu after just two seasons. The sequel series to How I Met Your Mother just recently aired its Season 2 finale and many fans hoped for another season that would answer the burning question that the entire series is built upon. It seems that won’t be the case.
HIMYF followed a new group of friends, consisting of Sophie (played by Hilary Duff), Jesse (played by Chris Lowell), Valentina (played by Francia Raisa), Charlie (played by Tom Ainsley), Ellen (played by Tien Tran), and Sid (played by Suraj Sharma). The story took place eight years after the events of the HIMYM finale and was narrated from the perspective of a 58-year-old Sophie (played by Kim Cattrall) who had already met her child’s father.
In the Season 2 finale, which now serves as the series finale, Sophie entered into a relationship with Jesse. Meanwhile, Sid experienced the breakdown of his marriage with Hannah. The finale also introduced a second mystery by revealing that Val and Charlie, who had broken up in Season 1 due to conflicting desires about having children, eventually have a son named Alex.
Although HIMYF was a standalone series, it existed within the HIMYM universe and featured some fan-favorite characters of the original series in cameo appearances such as Cobie Smulders as Robin Scherbatsky and Neil Patrick Harris as Barney Stinson.
The series was created by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, former showrunners of This Is Us. They served as executive producers alongside Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, the creators of How I Met Your Mother as well as the director Pamela Fryman. Adam Londy, Suzy Mamann Greenberg, and Duff also executive produced the series.
Over the course of its two seasons, HIMYF produced a total of thirty episodes. You can watch the first two seasons including the series finale on Hulu now.
