Hilary Duff has already been revealed as the frontman of the series. It is the mother who explains to her son how she met his father. The Hollywood Reporter announced on Tuesday that she will star alongside Veronica Mars actor Chris Lowell, Grown-ish actress Francia Raisa, Royals actor Tom Ainsley, Space Force actress Tien Tran and Life of Pi actor Suraj Sharma.
Lowell will play a musician named Jesse who helps pay the bills as an Uber driver. Sharma plays Jesse’s roommate and best friend named Sid who owns a bar. Tran will play Jesse’s adopted sister who recently moved from a quiet farmland to bustling New York City.
Raisa will play Valentina, a stylist and the roommate of Duff’s character. Ainsley will play Charlie, a wealthy model who moved to New York after falling in love with Valentina.
10 episodes of the series will be broadcast exclusively on Hulu. There is no release date yet, but a post from Duff’s Instagram story indicates the show is currently in production.
Duff made the news at the end of 2020 after the cancellation of a new season of his former Disney Channel series Lizzie McGuire. She said in an interview in early 2021 that the series was too mature for Disney +.
” I think [Disney is] really trying to figure out what kind of content they want to experience on Disney +, ”Duff said. “It doesn’t quite match where I see Lizzie right now. I am like very protective of her, and they are very protective of her. “
Duff probably can’t say too much about his relationship with Disney as How I Met Your Father is directed by Disney’s 20th Century Television, according to THR. Duff recently promoted How I Met Your Father at Disneyland.
