How I Met Your Father Cancelled After 2 Seasons at Hulu
How I Met Your Father‘s titular mystery will go unsolved. Hulu has cancelled the How I Met Your Mother sequel series after two seasons, TVLine has learned. The news comes less than two months after the Season 2 finale. HIMYF picked up eight years after the events of the HIMYM finale, and focused on a new friend group consisting of Sophie (Younger‘s Hilary Duff), Jesse (Veronica Mars‘ Chris Lowell), Valentina (grown-ish‘s Francia Raisa), Charlie (The Royals‘ Tom Ainsley), Ellen (Space Force‘s Tien Tran) and Sid (God Friended Me‘s Suraj Sharma). The story was told from the perspective of a 58-year-old Sophie (played by Sex and the City‘s Kim Cattrall) — and unlike the original, the pilot established that our protagonist had already met the dad. In the Season 2 finale, which will now have to serve as a series finale, Sophie got together with potential baby daddy Jesse, while Sid, another potential baby daddy, saw his marriage to Hannah implode. Additionally, the last scene set up a secondary mystery, revealing that Val and Charlie — who broke up in Season 1 because Charlie never wanted to have kids — eventually have a son named Alex. Though largely a standalone series, HIMYF existed in the HIMYM universe, and featured cameos by original series stars Cobie Smulders (as Robin Scherbatsky) and Neil Patrick Harris (as Barney Stinson). A complete rundown of cameos, Easter eggs and future reveals can be found here. HIMYF‘s cancellation caps the series’ run at 30 episodes. TVLine’s Streaming Scorecard has been updated.
