How I Met Your Father Theories by Fans

No sooner did the show announce its arrival date than fan theories started doing rounds. One such fantasy that fans want to come true is that of 

Barney’s character walks into this show as well.

Fans think it would be splendid to have Barney as a special entrant here. The previous sitcom had not slated a very good ending for him. He eventually separated from the love of his life Robin. Fans have to say that even though Barney is a loving father, he cannot suppress his frivolous nature.

Barney might have ended up on several modern dating apps to find himself a companion. He might eventually end up going on a date or two with Sophie. Who knows. If this crossover happens, the storyline will take quite an intense and interesting turn. Barney was the only one whose fate was obscure.

Overall, fans might find a resolution for Barney’s character. All the things mentioned above are merely fan speculations.

What does Hilary Duff have to say?

Hilary Duff, who plays Sophie, has so much to say. Here’s what she revealed in an Instagram video addressing her fans:–


“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. As a huge fan of How I Met Your Mother, I’m honoured and even a little nervous that Carter and Craig would trust me with the sequel of their baby Isaac and Elizabeth are brilliant, and I can’t wait to work alongside them and all of their genius. Just fangirling over here getting to join the Hulu Originals and 20th families. I realize these are big shoes to fill and I’m excited to slip my 6½’s in there!.”



They are the ones who gave birth to this idea of a series that will be narrated from the female perspective. They said they were beyond more than enthralled to bring How I Met Your Father to Hulu.

Carter and Craig’s iconic original series revolutionized the half-hour comedy, and we are so honored to be carrying the torch forward for the next generation — and with Hilary Duff no less! We can’t wait for audiences to meet Sophie and her crew, and watch them come into their own and find love in modern-day New York City. And we hope nobody thinks it’s weird that Bob Saget will be playing old Hilary Duff’s voice.”

Thus as evident as it is, both the crew members and viewers are very excited to watch the series. It will be a great hit after we have seen the trailer. Sophie will remind us of Ted Mosby. We can even see Marshall and Barney’s friendship. Robin will be missed a little lesser, now.

We hope this series which just saw gender roles getting reversed, will be loved as much as its inspiration. It is tough to compete and hold the same standards as the 2005 series.

Bob Saget narrated 9 seasons. Unfortunately, we do not know who will lend her voice to Sophie’s story. None of this, though, has dampened our spirit. Stay tuned on Hulu in January!
