We know fans (including us) were left heartbroken after it was announced that the ‘Lizzie McGuire’ reboot has been cancelled despite having filmed the first two episodes.
But fret not, because our girl crush, Hilary Duff, is set to return to your TV screens but in another universe.
How I Met Hilary Duff?
According to Variety
, the sequel to ‘How I Met Your Mother’, which has been aptly titled as ‘How I Met Your Father’ is in the works for Hulu channel.
Hilary Duff has been named to star in the series as Sophie.
She will play the titular character telling her son the story of how she met his father: a story that catapults us back to the year 2021 where 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.
It is unclear if the original cast will appear in the sequel or if it will tie back to the sequel at all.
Duff will also serve as a producer in the sequel alongside the show’s creators, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas.
“I’ve been incredibly lucky in my career to play some wonderful characters and I’m looking forward to taking on the role of Sophie,” said the mother of three.
No word yet on whom else will star in the sequel.
Fans and celebrity frriends congratulated the former Disney star and said she’s definitely the right person for the role.
With ‘Lizzie McGuire’ out of the picture, now we’re really excited to watch ‘How I Met Your Father’ soon.
